Dress code policy in relation to your child's attendance at our school.We believe that a school Dress Code contributes to:
- Whole school unity and individual feelings of self-worth through such unity.
- The provision of a supportive school environment by reducing levels of competitive dressing.
- The realisation of social justice by relieving parents of pressure to purchase high cost brand name clothing for school wear.
- Positive visibility of Goodwood Primary School in the wider community.
Therefore we will support the wearing of school uniform and conformity with a dress code by:
- Positive staff and community support for school uniform and the dress code.
- Offering the sale of uniforms through a Uniform Shop.
- Taking steps to eliminate dress based harassment.
- Inclusion of a range of non-brand named clothing in the dress code.
- Regular review of the dress code in consultation with students, parents/caregivers and staff.
- The yearly provision of an exclusive 'class of....' garment for year 7 students.
- Should a conflict arise between students in relation to clothing a restorative justice process
