Gold Creek Senior School Uniform

Gold Creek School Uniform

Rationale:
Gold Creek School promotes excellence in all that it does. The school expects students to take pride in their appearance through the wearing of the correct uniform. The uniform identifies children with their school, promotes student allegiance and it also acts as a means towards providing equality amongst children, regardless of socio-economic background. The wearing of a uniform unites the school publicly, as well as being practical. The uniform supports occupational health and safety issues of safe and practical clothing particularly in workshops and practical areas.

The school uniform can be purchased from MacDonalds Schoolwear or Chilada. Both shops are located in Gungahlin.

Gold Creek School (Senior Site) Uniform Procedures

Uniform Expectations

The Gold Creek School uniform is seen as being an integral component of developing a cohesive learning culture at the school. The uniform provides students with a sense of community and pride in their school and is commented on positively in the wider community when students represent Gold Creek.

On the next page, the uniform list is provided. In consultation with the Student Leadership Group on 20 May, Mrs Baird has approved a slight adaptation to the school uniform requirements in the winter period to support students and families. Students may wear navy blue tracksuit pants and/or navy blue jumpers. These may not have stripes, logos or other colours. When students are outside they may also wear an additional jacket preferably in navy blue; however, these jackets must be removed when students are inside buildings and classrooms.

Satin, see-through or stretch skin-tight fabrics are not permitted. Tights and leggings are not regarded as suitable alone, because they are quite revealing and cause embarrassment for both staff and other students. Jeans (black or navy blue) are not acceptable at any time.

Uniforms may be ordered/purchased through suppliers Macdonalds Childrens Wear or Chilada. Both shops are located in Gungahlin. Any students or family experiencing financial difficulty may seek assistance in the purchase of uniform.

Follow up

Students will be excluded from certain activities if they are not wearing school uniform. These include but are not limited to excursions, formal occasions such as school performances and access to certain areas during student break times. Students who persistently do not wear uniform will be placed on the No Go List after the following restorative and support steps have been implemented:

  1. Tutor Group Teacher counsels student on their uniform and may make contact with parents/carers.
  2. Tutor Group Teacher makes a phone call home to inform parents/carers of uniform infringement.
  3. Student is placed on the No Go List and parent is notified.
  4. After two weeks of wearing school uniform students will be removed from the No Go List by their tutor group teacher.

Support from Parents and Staff

If students are unable to wear a school uniform on a particular day, they must have a written note from their parent or carer and a uniform pass will be provided for the student on that day.

Staff will monitor student observance of the School Uniform Policy and, from time to time conduct a ‘uniform blitz’ to reinforce the community expectations.

Parents are asked to support the school’s uniform policy by sending students to school in uniform each day and support the school in implementing the follow up actions for non-compliance

Authority for the Setting of School Uniform Policy

The School Uniform Policy has been authorised by the Gold Creek School Board, which has the responsibility under the Education Act, for setting the policy and directions of the school.
