Rationale

The dress code is established by the School Board of North Perth Primary School, to promote a positive, safe and healthy learning environment for the students.

  • The School Board believes a school dress code:
  • Fosters and enhances the public image of the school
  • Ensures students are safely and appropriately dressed for specific school activities
  • Encourages equality among students
  • Assists in building school and team spirit
  • Assists in identifying our students for requirements of duty of care, especially for out of school activities.

Standards

For the health and well-being of the child, it is necessary that students are clean and well-groomed including clipped fingernails and long hair tied up.

Jewellery is not permitted except for studs or sleepers for pierced ears. Watches may be worn. Significant cultural/religious jewellery is permitted but please alert the Principal.

Cosmetics and nail polish are not allowed.

Students must wear a broad brim or legionnaire style hat when outside and wear clothing that covers the shoulders to protect the skin from the sun.

Consequences

Where a student’s clothing is not consistent with the school dress code, measures will be taken by the school staff. This may include contacting parents.
