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.

If students are incorrectly dressed, parents must send a note to the tutor to explain why and when it will be resolved in order to avoid a sanction beng given to their child.

 All students are expected to take a full and active part in PE lessons and must bring a change of kit (that complies with the kit list supplied to parents and carers) to ensure they are fully equipped for the activities taught. 

If students are unable to take physical part in PE lessons, for whatever reason, they should bring a medical note or a note from parents/carers, outlining the reason(s) the student cannot take physical part in PE, to their PE teacher.  They must also bring a change of kit (that complies with the kit list supplied to parents and carers) so that they can assist with coaching, officiating, helping with equipment and any other reasonable tasks the teacher asks them to do.  By bringing a change of kit, students will be dressed appropriately for all potential weather conditions.   

If there are any issues that cannot be resolved using the directives above, the Head of Department should be notified.
