School Uniform Policy

We feel we can be rightly proud of our school. School uniform sets a very public standard. We look forward to receiving your full support in ensuring that our students give a good impression of the school in the way that they dress as well as in their behaviour towards others in the community.

Uniform guidelines – the expected standard at Idsall School

  • Skirts must be appropriate for school in terms of material, style and length. The school skirt should be one of two tailored styles (either straight or pleated) – and can be purchased from our uniform suppliers Baker and Son or Bristows (details can be found on the link below). No other style of skirt is permissible. Skirts must be worn on the knee, should not be high waisted or rolled up. A general guide for appropriate skirts according to length is that when the pupil stands up from a sitting position, the skirt naturally falls to a length that is on the knee. Splits should be of an appropriate length for school.
  • Shirts must be plain without emblems or badges – patterned t-shirts or polo necks must not be worn under shirts.
  • School trousers should be plain black, loose fitting with a straight leg and be front fastening. They should have a single button at the waist and a concealed zip. We do not allow low cut ‘hipster’ style trousers or broad, decorative belts. Jean-style/stretch or denim fabrics are not acceptable – an entirely appropriate school trouser is available from our supplier.

Outdoor coats or jackets should be a plain colour without bold words or logos and with a front fastening. We do not allow pullover tops, ‘hoodies’ or cardigans, they may be confiscated during the school day. Scarves are for outdoor wear only and not to be worn inside the school building.

We have a small amount of second-hand uniform available in school. Please contact us by emailing for more information about this.

  • Pupils may wear fluorescent arm or shoulder bands for road safety on the way to and from school in the winter months.
  • Shoes – we will not allow high, narrow heels (heels higher than 2 inches), sling backs, mules or
    other shoes that we judge to be unsuitable for school. Trainers of any type or style are not
    acceptable and shoes made of a canvas material (e.g. pumps) are not permitted.

  • Jewellery – This is limited to plain ear studs, one in each ear and a watch (smart watches can be worn but they must have phone functionality switched off during school time.) Rings, necklaces or other jewellery items are liable to be confiscated for a period of time. Any other kind of body piercing, including nose studs, are not permitted.

Please note we do not take responsibility for any valuables brought into school.

  • Discreet make-up is a privilege for students in Years 10 and 11. If make-up is not discreet pupils will be asked to remove it and will lose the privilege if they persistently turn up with inappropriate make up. Students in KS3 will be asked to remove make-up. Nail varnish is not allowed in any year. False nails and false eyelashes of any type are not allowed, and nails should be a suitable length for school.
  • Hair style – We ask that students attend Idsall School with a haircut that is appropriate for a school environment and suggest that parents talk to their Year Leader before arranging ‘special’ hairstyling for their children. Hair bands are to be black or brown in colour, other fashion hair accessories are not acceptable.
