Uniform

We expect high standards of dress from students at Endeavour High School, reflecting the pride they have in their school. We have deliberately chosen a uniform which is recognisable, and which reflects this pride  All students must present themselves for school in full uniform, and with the correct sports kit and equipment.  Any student who does not comply with the school's uniform code will be given a detention. Repeated wearing of the wrong clothing or shoes will result in the child either being given a detention or being sent home to collect missing items of uniform.

All items of clothing must be marked with the owner's name so that missing articles can be traced.

UNIFORM GRANTS

JEWELLERY

To avoid risk of loss or damage, and in the interests of Health and Safety, students should not wear jewellery to school.

The only items of jewellery allowed are one plain stud or small, plain sleeper in the base of each ear and a wristwatch.

Other forms of body piercing present real problems of safety, particularly in PE.

Frequent removal increases the risk of infection.

For these reasons, body piercing, apart from ears, is not allowed at Endeavour High School.

Please note that the school cannot take responsibility for any items of jewellery which are lost or mislaid.
