Uniform

The Trustees and school leaders believe that all members of the school community have a right to be taught in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning, to be treated equally, and not to be bullied, ridiculed or subject to discrimination. Therefore, the school does expect parents/carers to prepare their children appropriately for school, ensuring that they follow the school’s uniform expectations.

Uniform Expectations
  • If parents are in doubt about the suitability of any items of uniform they intend to purchase, they should contact the school. This will enable us to work together to maintain high standards of dress.

  • Friends of Roding Valley High School sell nearly new uniform. This is available on the Year 6 Parent Transition Evenings.

  • Blazers must be worn at all times by students in Years 7 – 11 inclusive. Failure to have a blazer will result in the student not being allowed into lessons. In extreme weather conditions, the ‘blazer at all times’ rule may be relaxed but should not be replaced by any other item of clothing – if it is, it will be confiscated. If parents are in any doubt as to what might be acceptable they should contact their child’s Year Progress Leader.

  • School Ties: Students will be allocated a House when enrolled at Roding Valley High School. Membership of the Houses is denoted by our school ties, the colour of the House ties are as follows: Churchill (Yellow), Hawking (Blue), Murray (Green), Pankhurst (Purple), Rendell (Red) If the school provides a replacement tie after a loss by a student, parents may be billed for the cost of the new tie via Parent Pay.

  • Outer Coats and Jackets: Outer coats should be hard-wearing and worn over the top of the blazer. Leather and denim jackets are strictly prohibited, as are hooded tops, tracksuit tops (other than those issued by the school) and baseball caps.
