At Fulbrook, we have a uniform and expect our students to wear it correctly. In doing so, it reflects pride in our school and the part each young person plays in our school community. It helps to promote a positive learning atmosphere and a readiness to learn; it supports good behaviour. It helps to protect our young people from social pressures and bullying. It is an outward sign of each student’s commitment to the school and helps to instil a sense of belonging.
All students are required to wear full school uniform at all times, including to and from school. Dealing with inappropriate uniform matters detracts from time devoted to learning; thank you in advance for your support in this matter. Students who are not in correct uniform and who do not have a reasonable explanation (covered by a note from home) will be offered uniform to borrow, in order to attend lessons as soon as possible. Contact with home might be made, to request that the correct items are brought into school. Refusal to change into provided items will result in a student being placed in reset until the correct uniform is worn. Should a student breach the uniform policy three times in one week, an after-school detention will be issued.
We are unapologetic about having high expectations regarding the wearing of uniform. We would like to thank you for helping us to ensure that correct uniform is worn.
If you have any questions or queries regarding uniform, please contact the school office by emailing email@example.com
If you are finding the cost of uniform difficult, please contact your child’s form tutor in confidence; we shall do our best to help.

We strongly discourage the bringing to school of any items of value or large sums of money. We discourage children from bringing mobile phones to school. If parents choose to allow children to bring them then they must be kept in their school bags and out of sight at all times during the school day.
We will not accept responsibility for any lost or broken mobile phones. Pupils are not permitted to use them on the school site.
