Fairfield High School Uniform 2021-22

At FHS, we expect the highest standards of our staff and students. This is to prepare them for success in adult life and for the expectations of employers.

  • Any student not in correct uniform will be issued with a 15 minute detention after school on the same day. Their tutor/AC will discuss the issues and timescale for uniform issues to be solved. If this is persistent the school may choose a stronger sanction.
  • If there is an exceptional circumstance and a student arrives without full, correct uniform, they must have a note in their planner to explain the reason. Their tutor or AC will decide if the reason given is acceptable, and they will be issued with a yellow slip, which means they will not be kept after school.

Please can parents/carers ensure all items of clothing are clearly marked with their child’s name.

Achievement Coordinators will lend out school shoes and ties to anyone not in the correct uniform without a medical note. We will be expecting students to hand in an item such as house keys or a phone as a deposit for the lend that they can collect at the end of the day.

If a student requires multiple lends, the option will be available to buy the school shoes for £15, payment by cash or cheque at reception. As a reminder, school shoes must be black, polishable and with no branding visible.
