School Uniform

From September 2019 John Spence School Uniform will be changing.

We believe that having a clear set of uniform standards helps to set the tone of the school; it reflects the high expectations we have around ensuring a day to day purposeful learning environment. These high standards in uniform are integral to the high standards in attitudes and behaviour that we expect at John Spence Community High School. Our uniform is important to our identity as a school and helps us to project the best possible image within our community and beyond. We expect that students adhere to our uniform standards so that we will not have to spend time addressing uniform issues, as this time should be spent on supporting and challenging students to maximise their achievement.

If a student refuses to remove items they will remain isolated until they do so.
