Certain items of Rokeby’s school uniform can only be purchased in school. This includes the school blazer, jumper, tie and PE kits. All other uniform items can be purchased at a retail establishment of your choice (for example trousers, shirt and shoes).
Side bags are not big enough to hold school equipment. This means that students who come to school with only a side bag are not ready for learning. For this reason, side bags will be taken for safekeeping and students will be issued with a Rokeby bag until they bring an appropriate bag to school.
Students who come to school wearing non-uniform shoes, such as trainers or plimsolls, will be expected to remove them and to change into Rokeby School shoes (loaned for the day by Student Services). If this happens, you will be notified. This will be a temporary solution and students will be expected to have correct school shoes as soon as possible.
We will continue with the current policy of lending students a tie for the day if they arrive at school without one. Again this will be a temporary solution and students will be expected to have a tie as soon as possible.
