At Hallbankgate School, we have very high expectations and promote the idea that everything we do should be the best that it can be: from behaviour and attitudes to learning, to kindness and presentation. This formed part of the rationale behind undertaking a uniform review, as well as to reduce the number of options, thus making it clearer for families about what our school uniform is.
In summary, there are a few minor changes that came into effect from September 2020. The uniform choices have been simplified. The main changes are:
- One colour of trousers/skirts/shorts/tights: these will now be dark grey only
- Hooded jumpers can no longer be worn in classrooms and will be phased out (school hooded jumpers can, however, be ordered to be worn in PE only).
- Leggings and trainers (instead of school shoes) are not permitted.
- Active-wear/ sports-wear (instead of the school shorts, t-shirt and school hooded jumper) are not permitted in PE or in After School Sports Clubs.
Orders for uniform are placed every half-term where there is sufficient need.
