Withernsea High School

Withernsea High School

Inspiring confident young people to thrive in a changing world



Uniform will be checked daily by the Head of Year and form tutors. If a student does not follow the school dress code this will be recorded on Class Charts and parents/carers will be informed.

Pastoral staff will work with individual students to establish the reason for uniform issues and how these can be resolved as soon as possible.

If a parent/carer has a short-term difficulty with uniform then this should be communicated to the school
