Uniform shop

We have a uniform shop that runs out of the P&C room which is located near the grade 1 & 2 classrooms. Currently Monday and Friday afternoons from 2:30pm - 3:10pm. The uniform shop is a volunteer position and any parent help is much appreciated.

Dress code

The Slade Point State School community strongly believes in students wearing a uniform to school every day. 

We actively encourage our students to take pride in themselves and their school. One way in which this may be achieved is through adherence to the school’s dress standards. As the parent/carer and provider of your child, we seek your full support in this matter.

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association promotes 100% adherence to the approved school uniform. Our student dress code consists of an agreed standard and items of clothing, which includes a school uniform that Slade Point State School students wear when:

  • attending or representing  their school (eg daily lessons, excursions, (sporting or cultural events),
  • travelling to and from school,
  • engaging in school activities out of school hours.

The Slade Point State School staff and Parents and Citizens’ Association fully support a student dress code policy because they believe that a student dress code provides for clothing that aims to contribute to a safe and supportive teaching and learning environment through:

  • ready identification of students and non-students at school,
  • fostering a sense of belonging,
  • developing mutual respect among students by minimising visible evidence of economic or social differences,
  • promotes an effective teaching and learning environment by eliminating the distraction of competition in dress and fashion at the school.

A full copy of the dress code is available from the office in the school prospectus.

Special notes

  1. Jewellery (eg. necklaces, rings, bracelets, bangles, ear rings, body piercing) is not part of our school uniform. Health and safety provisions permit the wearing of one watch, a ‘flat’ ring, one set of plain or stud earrings worn in the ears (sleepers are recommended), a medical alert bracelet/necklace or items of significant religious belief with prior notification to the principal. Students will be requested to remove or tape jewellery during some sporting activities. Other jewellery may be ‘unsafe for the student or others’ as such items could become caught in play equipment or could come into contact with another student causing injury. A student wearing other jewellery will be asked to remove the item and if necessary give it to a staff member for safe-keeping for the remainder of the day. Students who repeatedly wear unapproved jewellery will have the item confiscated and only returned to their parents.
  2. Hair must be neatly groomed (combed or brushed) away from the student’s face. To reduce the transfer of head lice, hair that is collar length or longer is to be plaited, braided or tied back with hair accessories. Long hair not tied up could be ‘unsafe for the student and likely to result in a risk to health and safety of students and others’. Hair should not be dyed un-natural colours during the school term. Inappropriate hairstyles (eg inappropriate words cut into the hair) may ‘negatively influence the normal school operations’ and are therefore not permitted.
  3. Only clear nail polish is to be worn as other colours are ‘likely to disrupt or negatively influence the normal school operations’. Students wearing coloured nail polish will be asked to remove it by the next day.
  4. Families who encounter financial difficulties providing their children with the approved Slade Point School uniform, should discuss this with the principal.  Alternate less expensive options are possible as part of this school’s dress code.
  5. School uniforms will be available from our school tuckshop in 2015 – see the school newsletter for details of when P&C volunteers man the uniform shop.

Alternative dress code option

These options may be worn by students when the approved uniform is temporarily unavailable (eg. being washed) or when financial hardship prevents families from temporarily providing the approved uniform.

None of these items of clothing should not have patterns, designs, designer labels etc on them. They are meant to be an economical option for those suffering financial hardship – not an opportunity for students to wear clothing that may in fact be more expensive than the approved school uniform.
