Carshalton High School for Girls

Carshalton High School for Girls

Carshalton High School for Girls is a highly successful school, judged by Ofsted in November 2017 as ‘Good’ in all categories.

Uniform

The uniform and the manner in which it is worn is a reflection on the school and its standards. Carshalton High School for Girls believes in the highest standards, highest aspirations and the highest expectations in all aspects of school life.

All students are responsible for ensuring that they present themselves neatly and adhering to the requirements of the uniform code. Students are representatives of Carshalton High School for Girls; therefore uniform should be worn in the correct manner on the way to and from school, throughout the school day and on school journeys (unless otherwise instructed). 

Carshalton High School for Girls has a uniform because: 

  • It identifies students as belonging to the school and helps in the creation of a school community - the wearing of school uniforms emphasises membership and group identity, fostering a community spirit;
  • It provides a framework for young people who need to learn that different dress codes are required for different circumstances and prepares many for a work environment where formal dress is required;
  • It avoids the excesses of competition in fashionable/designer label clothes which many families cannot afford;
  • The wearing of school uniforms helps students to realise that a person’s unique gifts and personality traits go deeper than their apparel and aren’t diminished by uniform dress;
  • It is perceived positively by prospective parents;
  • Wearing of school uniforms prevents the formation of dress-identified cliques.
  • Smart appearance is increasingly an important aspect of modern life and instils self confidence and a sense of personal respect;
  • There is clear evidence that students who are self-disciplined with regard to their uniform apply the same self discipline to other aspects of school i.e. homework and personal organisation.
  • Most significantly, all of the above can have a positive impact on a student’s progress in school

All uniform items should be clearly marked with the student’s name.
