The school uniform for all students is to be worn without variation.
Our school uniform was chosen by our school council and it is an important part of creating a school identity in which we all take pride.
Deptford Green School has one sole supplier for many of the uniform items (Whitehall Clothiers, 244a Lewisham High Street, SE13 6JU). Those items marked with an asterisk (*) below may ONLY be purchased from the supplier and may not be replicated by high street brands or home-made products. Parents/carers must ensure that they have purchased the relevant asterisked items for their child, from the school, prior to their start at the school.
All items of clothing should be clearly labelled with the student’s full name.
The PE Uniform comprises of:
Pupils who do not follow the above rules will face a serious sanction.
All students must have a bag with them at all times. It must be suitable for carrying books, their planner and their equipment. We highly recommend you purchase our Deptford Green School bag. Students must have:
You will need another bag/larger bag for the days when they have PE/Food Technology (for which they will be given a list of ingredients). Unfortunately the school building has no lockers.
The school does not take responsibility for personal equipment brought onto the site – e.g. mobile phones, ipods, bikes as the school is not insured for the loss or damage of students' belongings. Parents are advised to ensure that any items of value brought to school are covered by their own insurance policy in case of damage. In PE lessons there is a system for collecting valuables that must be followed.
If items are lost, students should first trace back their movements (eg did they leave their coat in the last lesson) and if unsuccessful report to reception as soon as possible.
Students may bring mobiles to school. Mobiles may be used in the playground or canteen area on the ground floor. However they must not be used or be visible in any other area of the school.
Taking photos or recording around the school may result in isolation or exclusion. Smart phones or tablets may be used in some lessons such as maths to access materials. This will be at your teacher’s discretion.
Any student seen using a mobile phone/ipod/headphones in lessons will have it confiscated.
Repeat offences may result in detention and a parent being required to attend the school to collect the phone.
The school is not insured for the loss or damage of students' belongings. Parents are advised to ensure that any items of value brought to school i.e. watches, are covered by their own insurance policy. See note above on PE lesson protocol.
Many students like to bring balls to school for break time and pre-school sports. These should be left with the tutor in the morning and arranged to be collected at lunch or after school.
Please inform reception if you would like to cycle to school. The Student Services office then arranges for the child to have access to the bike sheds.
