A uniform policy can:
Our current school uniform was established after consultation with governors and students; the latest consultation being this year. Our students are our ambassadors in the community and they should look, and behave, appropriately. We actively welcome the support of parents in helping students to look presentable. All main school students (Years 7 to Year 11) are expected to wear Sheringham High School uniform as detailed below.
It is important for students and the School that the way in which they present themselves is appropriate and acceptable in order to create the impression of a cohesive and well-ordered establishment. School uniform is a 'conduct' and 'standards' expectation'. It is expected that all students will come to School every day in neat, clean uniform, giving a message that they take pride in belonging to the School. It is vital that parents support the policy fully as outlined in the Home-School Agreement. Parents should be aware that it is the policy of the school that all staff will challenge uniform issues. It is an expectation that all parents sign up to the Home – School Agreement.
Our main uniform supplier is Stevensons, based at 67 Ber Street Norwich NRI 3AD; telephone 01603 622355. However, parents can also purchase uniform on line. Further information can be obtained from their website; firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the COVID19 crisis, uniform can only be purchased on line until further notice.

Parents should consult Stevensons website for detailed information about PE kit. This can only be purchased from Stevensons. Compulsory kit is as follows.
Other items such as track tops and pants may also be purchased but these are optional.
We make every effort to ensure our uniform is affordable and comfortable and hope that parents and students will do their best to adhere to it and help us to maintain our high standards. In the unusual event that a student doesn’t conform to our expectations, he / she may well not be allowed to attend lessons until the problem is rectified.
Any parent/carer who has difficulty in meeting the cost of uniform should contact the Deputy Headteacher (Mrs Melhuish) in confidence.
Please do not hesitate to contact one of our student managers, in the first instance, if you have any questions about the current uniform or the changes we are making. As we come towards the end of the academic year, parents may wish to purchase one of the new grey school skirts, rather than buy a black replacement.
