We pride ourselves on the high standard of dress at Dovedale. Our recommended form of clothing includes a special Dovedale Sweatshirt. These high quality, serviceable garments are bright red with a black logo and are available from school. In order to maintain our high standard we consider Bermuda shorts, jeans, denim jackets, highly coloured track, jogging or shell suits unsuitable for school. We believe that high standards of dress make a positive contribution to overall discipline in the school.
Our dress code, endorsed by the Governing body, is:
a) Plain trousers and skirts in grey or black.
b) White shirts, blouses or T-shirts.
c) Sweatshirts, jumpers and cardigans in red or grey.
d) Plain black, sensible shoes with little or no heel.
Plain shorts, trousers, T-shirts, dress and skirts based on school colours (red, grey).
Shoes as above.
As you are well aware, children are very good at losing their clothes and red shirts all look the same. With this in mind, we would ask that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child's name. This applies particularly to such things as anoraks, pullovers, cardigans, ties, wellingtons, plimsolls and P.E. vests, sweatshirts.
The school has a strict policy on the wearing of jewellery. No jewellery should be worn during school time. If a child has had their ears recently pierced they should be covered in tape at all times in school and removed once the six week period has passed.
