At Ivanhoe we operate a strict uniform policy.
Ivanhoe students are expected to wear full school uniform, including sweatshirts, at all times during the school day, travelling to school and travelling home from school.
Please read the Uniform Policy and view the information and guidance slides for full details of what we expect students to wear.
At Ivanhoe we aim for the highest standards as set out in our vision statement – ‘Journey to excellence’. We believe that high standards of dress and a smartly worn school uniform are important for several reasons:
We also know that a firm school uniform policy is what most parents/carers want, and that they want us to enforce it consistently.
When wearing the Ivanhoe uniform, whether in school or out, students are representing the school and therefore are expected to wear it smartly and with pride. When wearing our uniform out of school students are also expected to maintain the highest standards of behaviour and politeness.
If you are unsure about an item of clothing, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Form Tutor, who will deal with your enquiry in the first instance.
We will endeavour to contact home whenever there is a problem with uniform.
Ivanhoe Uniform can be purchased from Ashby Schoolwear, Market Steet, Ashby and Pupil Schoolwear, West Street Swadlincote.
