We are pleased to announce the new uniform has been confirmed and will be available from Price & Buckland. Only PE kit will be available from Thomas Moore.
West Exe School have high expectations of students for their appearance. This starts with the uniform that they wear around the school and in physical education and extends to their use of makeup and jewellery. Full details of the school’s policies and expectations relating to Jewellery, uniform and general appearance can be obtained from the documents included below.
Our school uniform combines smartness with functionality and durability. Parents/guardians are strongly advised to pay particular attention to the uniform details attached, as only the items exactly as specified will be acceptable.
Students are expected to wear their full uniform with pride. This includes on their way to School and home. Those wearing incomplete uniform or non-approved items will receive a Red Card, and students wearing any accessories or jewellery which do not follow the school uniform policy can expect to have these items confiscated. The full uniform policy is set out in the policies section of the website.
The new uniform for ALL years from September 2019 will be:
- An appropriate white shirt
- Appropriate grey trousers for boys (tailored grey shorts allowed in the summer)
- Tights for Girls in the winter
- Dark socks for Boys
- The blue tartan skirt or grey trousers for girls
- Dark navy logo jumper or cardigan*
- New school tie in house colours
- Optional Jacket (compulsory for years 10 and 11 from 2020)
We are not expecting parents to replace the jumper or cardigan until they are ready to do so.
As a school, we have decided to move to the online supplier www.price-buckland.co.uk for the skirts, jumper and new tie. The company will be visiting the school in the summer for a sizing event where you will be invited to attend with your son/daughter to try on the uniform and pick the required sizes.
Sizing Dates – 3.15-5.30:
- 18/06/19 – Current West Exe Students
- 19/06/19 – Year 6 – New Year 7 only
Orders over £30 will be mailed to a home address for free.
We will be introducing summer and winter rules for the uniform. We will be expecting students to wear their jumper/cardigan at all times around school but they can ask in lesson if they can remove their jumper. Girls will also be expected to wear tights in the winter. Summer rules will run for the summer term and any warm days outside these dates will be declared as ‘hot weather rules’ and students can remove their jumpers without needing to ask.
Only PE kit is available to purchase from Thomas Moore.
The school will be collecting any old uniform including ties, to be sent to schools in developing countries via the www.theuniformproject.org.
Subsidies are available if your require support in purchasing new uniform. Please contact your Head of Year.
