We are proud of our uniform at De Lisle and we expect all our students to show their pride by wearing the uniform correctly at all times. All students need to be properly dressed in the correct college uniform. The Head Teacher's decision about what is acceptable in terms of dress or appearance is final.
There is an expectation that every student presents him/herself at the beginning and end of every registration and lesson correctly dressed, ready for learning.
Uniform Cards/Reports – to be used if uniform represents a persistent concern.
Each student is given a uniform card which will be signed by any member of staff who sees an aspect of uniform being worn incorrectly. After 3 signatures the Form Tutor records a strike and after 6 strikes a lunch time detention is issued. Any student receiving no signatures in a half-term will be awarded a star.
