Approval Date by Trust Board Colleague Responsible
September 2011 Mrs J Gleadall
At Valley Park we believe that excellent uniform is part of setting high academic standards. As a result students will need
to adhere strictly to the following uniform requirements at all times. This means that uniform must be worn correctly both
in and out of school including the journey to and from school.
Valley Park items are available from our supplier Simmonds or from the school uniform shop.

Valley Park black school skirt
Valley Park black school trousers
Valley Park clip on school tie

Plain white school shirt (incorporating a top button)
Low heeled black traditional school shoes with no adornments. (Trainers, trainer style, ballet and pump style shoes
are not allowed)
Black tights or black socks
Belts must be black, narrow and of a traditional style
It is expected that students wear their uniform with pride. This means;
Top button fastened at all times
Shirt tucked in at all times
No jewellery except 1 small plain stud in the lobe of each ear. No other piercings are allowed.

The reversible green rugby shirt is not compulsory for girls.
An appropriate, waterproof and sealable bag should be purchased for the protection of all school items. Because
students carry items of a reasonable weight in the bag, drawstring bags are not acceptable. Bags should be dark in
colour and logos should be discreet. Fashion bags and handbags are not acceptable.
To ensure that the correct uniform is purchased we recommend that the school supplier Simmonds or the school uniform
shop is used for clothing and the Golden Boot shoe shop for footwear. Leaflets outlining the style of shoes acceptable are
available either on the school website (www.valleypark.kent.sch.uk/policies/shoelist.pdf) or from the Golden Boot.
In cases of any dispute regarding the suitability of uniform the Headteacher’s decision is final.
