School uniform

Our school uniform ensures that you are smartly dressed while at school and identified as a member of St. Aidan’s. Please keep your uniform neat at all times. This means your top button fastened and shirt tucked in. Your hair too should be kept tidy and smart and no extreme styles are allowed. All items of uniform and kit should be clearly marked with your name. You must wear full, correct school uniform each day. The school governors and staff insist on this and when your parents accept a place for you at St. Aidan’s they agree that you will abide by the uniform regulations. There are occasional ‘non-uniform’ days when you can wear sensible non-uniform clothes if you make a donation to charity.

Pupil absence

In the interest of our pupils’ safety it is important that we know which pupils are in school and which pupils are absent. We cannot monitor pupils’ attendance accurately without parents’ help. If your child is absent from school for any reason, it is important that you contact us as early as possible on the first day of absence. You can e-mail the Attendance Officer direct and on your child’s return to school we do require a note from you to confirm the reason for your child’s absence. Please mark the envelope FAO: THE ATTENDANCE OFFICER and ask your child to hand it in at Reception. If your child is absent for more than one day you need not contact us every day. If you know in advance that your child will be absent, ie. for an appointment, please notify your child’s form teacher in writing or e-mail the Attendance Officer. For Sixth Form absences contact the Sixth Form Attendance Officer via email.
