Having a real sense of belonging to your new school is important. Our students should be proud to be part of Mount Tamar School and wearing our uniform is a symbol of that pride. Pupils should arrive at school looking smart as a preparation for the world of work. All pupils should wear the school polo shirt and / or the sweatshirt or cardigan. In our primary school the colour of the polo shirt is sky blue and their sweatshirt should be navy blue, we also encourage our lower school pupils to have one of the Mount Tamar book bags.
In our senior school the pupils can choose the colour of their polo shirt, however, the sweatshirt must be royal blue. Dark coloured trousers or knee-length skirts should be worn by all pupils. There is also a choice in secondary for pupils to wear a white shirt, Mount Tamar tie and blazer.
Hats and hoodies are not allowed in school. The school can become cold therefore it is important that the school jumper is worn. Coats should be removed in class.
Piercings other than one in each ear lobe are not acceptable, nor is tape over such piercings. Students may wear one pair of small, plain ear-studs.
Rings are not allowed due to being a safety risk.
Any other jewellery (including bracelets and bands) if worn may be confiscated and handed into reception for collection at the end of the day. If jewellery is a persistent problem we will ask parents to come and collect confiscated items.
High fashion hairstyles including shaving or shaved patterns and non-natural colours are not acceptable for any student.
Makeup is not permitted
Please note that the school reserves the right to make the final decision as to the appropriateness of dress, jewellery, makeup and hairstyle.
All uniform should be clearly labelled with pupils name to ensure that it can be returned swiftly to them if lost.
If a pupil attends school without the correct uniform, our procedure is to offer the pupil a spare polo shirt held here at school. If they refuse this option, the pupil will be sent home to change.
