Uniform & Personal Belongings 

It is an expectation that every pupil will wear our school uniform and cooperation with our parents/carers is expected. Our school uniform provides pupils with a sense of belonging, community and pride in our school. It is also helpful in generating corporate responsibilities and is a relatively inexpensive and practical outfit. Our school colours are red, yellow and navy blue. Sending your child to school in uniform sets a standard in appearance of which parents/carers, pupils and Woodeaton can be proud.

The Nest, Key Stages 3 and 4 wear the following items:

  • Navy blue sweatshirt with school badge – available from the school office priced at £12.50
  • White or grey shirt or polo shirt
  • Black or dark grey trousers or skirt – trousers should be school type/tailored trousers and not fashion or casual trousers
  • Black shoes
  • For reasons of safety and security, girls are only allowed to wear a limited amount of jewellery during School hours
  • Neither boys nor girls will be permitted to wear tongue, nose or eyebrow studs or indeed any visible piercing judged unsuitable

Personal belongings

All personal belongings should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Any money should be handed into the school office upon arrival. Many of our pupils have a considerable journey into school in their taxis and as such valuable items such as computer games, mobile phones, e-readers, music players and tablets/laptops can be brought into school, with permission from parents/carers, on the condition that all valuables are handed in to staff on arrival in circle time. These items will then be given back to pupils at break time and then handed back to staff for safe keeping at the end of break for the remainder of the school day. Parents/carers and pupils should note that our school cannot accept liability for the loss or damage to personal property if it is not handed in. Anything found should be handed in to a member of staff or the School Reception.  

Mobile phones:

All mobile phones should be handed to staff upon arrival and will be given back to pupils at break time if required and at the end of the school day. Under no circumstance can pupils use their phones or other devices fitted with cameras to record or photograph staff or pupils in school. Residential pupils are asked to have their phones switched off during meal times and after bed time.
