School Jumpers

We would recommend that all students have a school jumper. These are not compulsory but may well be necessary in colder months. We will allow students to wear plain black, navy blue, or grey hoodies in class. However, a school hoodie would be the ideal and we would strongly recommend the purchase of this garment, you can purchase a JCSC jumper online from Emblematic.

Hoodies of other colours and/or with large logos emblazoned across the chest or arms will not be permitted in the school building so, where present, logos should be small and discreet – no larger than the JCSC logo on the branded school jumpers. Please check with the relevant PSO for further guidance on this as hoodies that do not conform to these expectations will not be allowed to be worn inside the school building.

Buying a uniform

Wearing a uniform is a badge of pride. In school, all students are treated the same and wearing a uniform that makes them equal gives them a sense of identity and belonging. You can purchase uniform that must have the school embroidered logo on from our chosen suppliers:

Emblematic (emblematic.co.uk)

If you would like to see the uniform or try items on for size, we will have samples available at the “New” parents’ evenings.

Dress Code

We understand that some students wear make-up as it increases their confidence. Neutral make-up that is not noticeable is fine but anything beyond this is not accepted and students will have to remove it. False eyelashes are not permitted. Clear nail varnish is fine but any colours or French polish are not permitted and students will be told to remove this. False nails are dangerous and are not accepted in school. Anyone wearing them will not be allowed into lessons and will be taught at times of the day when there are no other students around. It will be the parent’s responsibility to bring them to school and collect them at the times dictated by us.

One small stud earring is permitted per ear and no other piercings anywhere else on the body are allowed. This is to avoid painful injuries during PE and at other times of the day. Only natural hair colours are allowed and we ask that unusual hairstyles are avoided.

Should fashion items and clothing with logos or embellishments continue to be worn, we will have no choice but to introduce embroidered skirts and trousers. This would be an additional cost to parents/carers. It is crucial that parents/carers support us with following our uniform policy and we thank you in advance for doing so.
