School Uniform

UNIFORM

From September 2019 we will have a new school skirt as a part of our uniform. The skirt is a checked pattern. We chose this design with our students and many parents, as it is both smart and practical. It is available on the QEGS Ashbourne section of the Trutex Meir website and from pop-up shops in school. The prices for the skirt are 20’’ [£17.50], 22”-28” [£18.50], 30’’-36’’ [£22.99], 38’’-40’’ [£25.99]. There are three lengths available 18”, 20” and 22”.

The length of the skirt needs to be at most, 3cm above the knee. Students in Years 8 to 11 from September must replace their current skirt with this new design, when the old one needs replacing. For new Year 7 students starting at QEGS in September 2019 and September 2020 choosing the skirt option, the only skirt available will be the new checked, pleated skirt. Students and parents may wish to purchase the new version before the transition period concludes.

If a student is not wearing the correct uniform, it is important this is sorted at the earliest opportunity. The table below shows how different issues are addressed. Where possible, we have a stock of clean, nearly new, spare/loan items to help students and families to meet our uniform expectations while their uniform is corrected. If your child does not have the correct uniform please write a note for them explaining the situation and saying when it will be corrected (e.g. sole fallen off shoes, buying new ones tonight). All teachers monitor uniform on a daily basis and contact home when concerns arise.
