Personal Appearance

Coats and Bags

  • Coats, when they need to be worn, should be a plain colour and style compatible with school uniform and student safety. It is recommended that detachable luminous strips and/or arm bands are used by cyclists in the winter months.
  • Jackets or coats that the school deems as ‘hoodies’ are not permitted. Logos are not allowed.  Leather, denim, sheepskin, sports tops, hoodies, or large jumpers must not be worn instead of a coat.
  • All students are expected to use a school bag that fits an A4 folder inside, is robust and sensible.

The decision about what is and is not acceptable will always remain with the school. Students are also expected to adhere to the uniform rules on the journey to and from school.

Second Hand Uniform

Glyn School hold a Second-hand Uniform Sale, every Monday from 3.15pm to 4.15pm, to allow Parents and Carers to purchase items.  Please go to Main Reception and you will be directed to the sale.

Many families purchase second-hand uniform either as ‘spares’ or to replace items that have been outgrown.

Payment for items will be made via your ParentPay account at the point of purchase. We will have Chromebooks available to help you gain access to ParentPay, if required.

The PSA Second-hand Uniform Shop is able to run due to the generous donations from our families. If you have any surplus uniform, we will gladly accept this. Please bring uniform donations to Main Reception. Please note that we are no longer able to accept books or electronic items, as we are unable to recycle these. 

For further information, please contact GLYNMAIL@glynschool.org

Alternate Arrangements

If you qualify for Pupil Premium or Free School Meals, you will be eligible for funded uniform items.

If financial support is required to assist in purchasing uniform items in times of financial hardship, please contact Mr Lightfoot, Assistant Headtecher, in confidence via email R.Lightfoot@glynschool.org
