Dear Parent /Guardian,
We are at the end of what has been a different and very unusual school year. We have all had to cope with a situation that has never been experienced before and we wanted to thank parents and pupils for the support, understanding and cooperation that you have shown during these difficult times.
We all need to start to prepare now for the new school year, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our uniform policy. At Cefn Saeson, we believe that school uniform is an integral part of the ethos adopted by the school. We work hard at creating a happy, friendly atmosphere, which is often commented on by visitors to the school, and we believe that our children’s appearance contributes to these very positive comments. We ask all parents to continue to support us in upholding these high standards.
School trousers must be black and tailored. We permit various styles, and a slim leg is acceptable, though skinny jeans, and trousers containing rivets/studs are not permitted. These trousers must be accompanied by plain black, leather type material (not canvas), flat shoes or trainers.
We return to winter uniform in September, which is a shirt, tie and school jumper.
We allow a single set of gold stud earrings to be worn in the lobe of the year, all other piercings must be removed before entering the school building, and failure to do so will result in the jewellery being confiscated. It is for this reason that we advise that all new piercings are done at the beginning of the summer holidays so they will be fully healed on their return to school. No ring jewellery, necklaces or bracelets are allowed.
May we take the opportunity to remind you that we have the parent app that you can download to receive the most recent information from the school regarding your child. This is available for download from the website www.sims-parent.co.uk. In order to access the app, you must contact the school to obtain an invitation code. Please phone Miss Finn on 01639791304 to get your code.
Finally, we would like to wish you a safe and pleasant summer, and look forward to seeing you all in September.
Mrs Sian Humphries – Head of Key stage 4. Mrs Victoria Anderson – Head of Key stage 3
