School Uniform

Charlton has tremendous pride in all our students and truly value their commitment to their school.  We passionately believe that the students’ appearance supports our positive ethos and our school uniform demonstrates the pride of belonging to our community.

Although we are pleased with the general standard of uniform, we have concerns regarding an increasing number of girls’ skirts.  The uniform policy clearly states that they should be wearing “a straight, back vent style navy skirt, no more than two inches above the knee”.  Too many skirts are too tight and too short and inappropriate for a learning environment.

To support the positive ethos of the school, from 4th September 2018, girls will be expected to wear knee-length pleated skirts, as shown on the attached uniform guide.

They can be purchased in store or online from a range of providers, including Tesco, Marks and Spencer, Matalan and Asda.  We are also working with Baker and Son, to provide the correct skirt.  They cost between £6.50 and £16.00.

Students who have recently purchased appropriate knee length skirts, will be allowed to wear them until they need replacing with the navy pleated skirt.  Girls are, of course, still able to wear navy, non-skinny trousers.

We continue to strive to raise expectations at Charlton School and hope you will be able to support us on this issue.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Pastoral Manager, or Mr Denfhy, Deputy Headteacher.

Yours faithfully

Mr A McNaughton
