By having a compulsory uniform Beaufort Secondary College aims to:
Encourage a sense of pride and belonging amongst our students
Promote a positive image of our school in the community
Identify our students as belonging to BSC
Develop a mutual respect amongst students by minimising visible evidence of economic or social differences
Account for health and safety risk/s in student participation in curriculum activities
These ultimately reflect our school’s values of Respectful Relationships, Excellence and High Expectations. Furthermore, BSC is committed to supporting a positive transition into meeting workplace expectations. This means that:
Earring studs or small earring sleepers may be worn; discreet necklaces are acceptable
The only facial piercing permitted is a small nose stud. Students will be asked to remove all other facial piercings
Students’ hair must be of a natural colour and tied back if past shoulder length
Any tattoos must be covered at all times
Make up and nail polish should be discreet and natural
Skirts, dresses and shorts should be kept at an acceptable length – between the knee and mid-thigh
Out of uniform clothing that can be seen under the uniform is not acceptable e.g. hooded tops.
When the full uniform cannot be worn for some reason, parents are asked to provide a note. Students not wearing correct uniform may be provided with a uniform to wear for the day.
It is the policy of Beaufort Secondary College that all students wear our school uniform. Students must wear the uniform each school day, including to and from school and the uniform must be presentable at all times.
