Sanctions for those students who fail to abide by the School’s Uniform PolicyWhere a student breaches the school’s uniform policy, this will be seen as defiance of school rules and that student will be subject to school sanctions.  Following DfE advice, these sanctions may include exclusion, depending on the circumstances of the case, even if the student does not otherwise display poor behaviour.
