Uniform Guidelines

 

College uniform is an essential part of the learning culture of a school. The uniform creates a sense of belonging and allows our students to be clearly identified at all times. Bentleigh Secondary College Council has developed a Uniform Policy that is designed to build a positive learning culture, and all members of the College community are expected to ensure that uniform is worn correctly at all times.

 

Uniform Expectations

 

Students are required to wear the College uniform. We ask for, and confidently expect, parental co-operation in the enforcement of correct uniform and maintaining proper standards in the general appearance and grooming of students. College uniform is compulsory for all students and must be worn at school, while travelling to and from school, and on any school excursion except where the teacher in charge has obtained the approval of the Assistant Principal for other clothes to be worn and this is noted on the consent form. All uniform items should be clearly named for identification. Any application for an exemption to the School Uniform Policy needs to be directed to the College Principal.

 

A combination of Summer and Winter Uniforms are not to be worn.

 

Summer uniform is worn Terms 1 & 4 and change into Winter uniform as directed by the College during Term 2.

 

Winter uniform is worn during Terms 2 & 3. Hair ribbons -navy blue or maroon.

Jewellery

 

Jewellery is not to be worn apart from a watch and for students with pierced ears, a pair of simple studs or sleepers in the ear lobes only are acceptable. No earrings or studs of any kind are to be worn in the nose, eyebrow or any other part of the anatomy-even if it is a clear earring or covered with a band aid.

 

Footwear

 

The required shoes for students are the normal flat black polishable leather lace-up or business shoes. Black sports shoes are not regarded as acceptable footwear and must not be worn by students. Black polishable leather lace-up shoes or black polishable leather t-bar shoes (these must be buckled up at all times). Under no circumstances can students participate in workshop classes without correct school shoes, even on a casual dress day or with a uniform pass.

 

Grooming

 

Hair must be kept regularly washed and in a healthy state. Hair grooming, styling and colouring must be appropriate to a school setting. No extreme haircuts will be accepted including dreadlocks, bright hair dyes or shaved heads. Students in Years 7 to 10 must be clean shaven.

Make-up and nail polish are not to be worn and students doing so will be expected to remove it.

 

Hats

 

Only the College sun hat is acceptable and must be worn outside for protection from the sun and College beanie in navy blue.

 

Jackets

 

Coloured jackets of any description are not to be worn over the College uniform, either at school or while travelling to or from school.

 

Blazers

 

The College blazer must be worn throughout the year with both the Summer and Winter uniform for all Year 7 2021.

The College blazer must be worn to and from school. On extreme hot weather days blazers are not required to be worn.

 

Consequences for not adhering to uniform guidelines and the dress code

 

Students must bring a parent note when they are out of uniform and take this to their Head of Year Level to get a uniform pass. Students repeatedly out of uniform will receive a Friday afterschool detention.

 

Ongoing issues will require a parent conference. Note: Students are not permitted to do PE unless in proper uniform. Students representing the College in sports teams should be properly attired in transit – either in PE or College uniform.
