The wearing of a school uniform is compulsory for Years P - 6
There is a large choice of school uniform which includes t-shirts, skort, polo, shorts, track-pant, windcheater etc. We endeavour to provide top quality clothing for children at the lowest possible rates.
Remember to: CLEARLY LABEL EACH ITEM OF CLOTHING.
Students are required to wear black school shoes or runners (toes and heels must be covered in).
Student Dress Code
The following dress code states the expectations Kingsley Park Primary School Council holds with regard to student appearance. This code will apply during school hours, while travelling to and from school and when students are engaged in school activities out of school hours. The Kingsley Park student dress code takes precedence over student’s individual preference in matters of dress.
In developing this code, opportunities for the viewpoints of students, parents and teachers have been made available through public meetings, newsletter articles and surveys, Kingsley Parents Group meetings and School Council meetings.
Purposes of the Kingsley Park Dress Code:
The Kingsley Park Dress Code neither discriminates directly or indirectly against students on the basis of their sex, race, ethnic group, nationality, religious beliefs, colour, disability or socio-economic circumstances. The dress code will apply uniformly across all students except for the exemptions listed below.
Exemptions from the Dress Code:
(i) Grounds for seeking an exemption:
Exemptions from the dress code may be sought if:
(ii) Procedures for seeking an exemption:
(iii) Procedures for granting an exemption:
Review of Dress Code:
The School Council will ensure the school community is informed prior to the commencement of any review. A major change will require the support of the majority of the school community. School Council will make amendments if deemed necessary.
Enforcement of the Dress Code:
Students who infringe the dress code will receive a graded series of sanctions:
(i) Initial Offence:
A reminder from the classroom teacher
(ii) Continued Offence:
The child will be given an infringement card following a discussion with a staff member.
After three (3) infringement cards, in any one year, step (ii) will be initiated
Parents will be notified of the infringement and asked to sign the acknowledgment slip sent home with the child
(iii) Ongoing Offence:
The student’s parents will be asked to attend the school to discuss the concerns with the school Principal / Assistant Principal
Children who infringe the dress code will not be able to represent the school, in the community, for optional educational activities. The school uniform is to be worn on all school excursions unless alternative arrangements have been authorised by the Principal. If a child presents not wearing the appropriate uniform, the child may be excluded from the activity. Individual student safety and group security, when outside the school environment, must be prioritised.
Children will not be withdrawn from classroom instruction because of any infringement of the dress code. For continued offences, they may be withdrawn from the yard.
