The CVC Uniform

We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity, pride and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable. We rely on parents to ensure that pupils arrive in school in correct uniform and may implement sanctions if a pupil does not comply.

All items can be purchased from our suppliers School Uniform Specialists and Essential Schoolwear.

To place an order with School Uniform Specialists please use the code COM902 at the following link 

Please note that skirts and trousers should now be purchased from our school suppliers.

CVC School Uniform Summary 2021-2022

The uniform summary listed below demonstrates the school expectations of its pupils. Sanctions will be imposed on students who do not conform to our expectations.

Shirts: 

College polo shirt. Any garment worn under the polo shirt must not be visible whether the shirt is worn buttoned or unbuttoned. 

Sweatshirts: 

College sweatshirt. The college fleece can be worn over the college sweatshirt 

Trousers: 

As sold by our supplier.   

Skirts: 

As sold by our supplier and should finish at the knee. These can be worn with plain, neutral coloured tights or socks which must be either grey, black or white in colour. 

Shoes: 

These should be flat and all black with no logos or symbols. They should be of a traditional style and suitable for movement around a large, busy school. They must be able to be securely fastened and worn accordingly. Backless sandals, mules, raised heels or boots are not acceptable. 

Shorts: 

As sold by our supplier. They must be worn with plain socks and can be either grey, black or white. 

Socks: 

These should be ankle length, plain (no logo) and in black, white or grey. These may be worn with tights provided they are plain (no logo) and match the colour of the tights so are either black or neutral.  

Tights: 

If worn these should be black or neutral and unpatterned. Leggings or footless tights are not acceptable. 

Jewellery: 

The only jewellery allowed is one small, plain stud in each pierced ear. Nose studs and other facial piercings are not acceptable.  

All jewellery and piercings must be completely removed for PE. Earrings cannot be taped for PE. Please ensure that new piercing is only done at the beginning of the summer holiday and not done within the academic year. 

Hairstyles

Extreme haircuts as judged by the college are not acceptable. Shaven heads or any haircut which involves the shaving of lines or symbols, extreme coloration or particularly noticeable variations in colour or length will almost certainly be judged as extreme. 

Makeup: 

Any make-up which is obvious and noticeable is not acceptable. Eyeliner, eye shadow, nail-varnish and false nails are not acceptable. 

Coats: 

Any outside coat should be plain and appropriate. Coats can only be worn over the college sweatshirt and not instead of it.  The school fleece is the only outer garment that may be worn in the classroom. 

Apron: 

An apron will be required for the food and nutrition curriculum only. 

PE Department Kit Policy

Students must bring their PE kit to every PE lesson.  In the event that a student is unwell or injured, they should arrive with full PE kit and a note from their parent or carer. Staff will then support students in maintaining an active role within the lessons which considers the injury or illness which the student is suffering from. The CVC kit that students are required to wear is as follows: 

PE kit compulsory items for both boys and girls 

Navy CVC shorts  

Sky blue CVC polo shirt 

Blue hockey socks 

Additional footwear that are not their current school shoes – they should be suitable for the sport.  

Leggings are not permitted 

PE kit compulsory for boys 

Blue and gold CVC rugby top 

Optional items for boys and girls 

These are not compulsory items, but those worn should have the CVC logo. Alternatives are not allowed. 

Navy blue CVC hoody 

Navy blue CVC tracksuit bottoms 

Navy blue CVC baselayer leggings 

Baselayer top 

Optional item for girls 

Navy blue CVC skort 

Due to the nature of the activities in this subject, all students should have a separate pair of trainers which are in addition to their school shoes, pumps such as ‘Vans’ or ‘Converse’ are not adequate for PE and students should not be wearing their school shoes for PE. 

There may be some activities where students require specialist equipment.  Students should wear studded boots when participating in games on the school field, such as football and rugby.  We strongly recommend that students wear mouth guards when participating in rugby and hockey and that shin pads are essential when performing in football and hockey.   

Students are permitted to wear a small pair of studs in their ears while at school.  However, please be aware that all jewellery must be removed for PE lessons.  This includes all piercings, plastic or metal and friendship bands. These items represent a potential hazard, not only to the wearer but also to other children. The Association for Physical Education Safe Practice confirms that any jewellery worn in Physical Education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times. Serious accidents have occurred as a result of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs with other pupils or equipment.  Taping over earrings is no longer a sufficient practice as it does not effectively prevent injury, particularly impact injuries.  With this in mind, we expect that students considering any piercings in the near future undertake them at the beginning of the summer break and not during the school year. It is not acceptable to wear piercings to school that cannot be removed. 

Thank you for your help and support with this policy.  This will enable all students to have their PE lessons in a fun, enjoyable and safe environment.
