Fairfield High School Uniform

Uniform Trial Letter – 18th-28th June 2024

At Fairfield, 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 have a discussion with their tutor/AC/AM or SLT to access any issues and timescale for uniform issues to be solved.
  • If this is a persistent issue the school may choose to 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 AC or AM will decide if the reason given is acceptable, and they will be issued with a yellow slip, which means they will not be challenged or sanctioned.

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

Achievement Coordinators (ACs) 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.

If you require additional support regarding uniform, please contact the AC via email.
