Prestatyn High School – New Uniform Launch Event April 2018
Dear Parent \ Guardian
I would like to invite all parents to the official new school uniform launch. After several months of consultation and design, the official new uniform for Prestatyn High is ready to be displayed. The launch evening will be on the 24th April at 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm. The evening will include a presentation by the head teacher and chair of the Uniform Committee, followed by the unveiling of the new uniform. The uniform local suppliers will also be present to inform all parents about the cost and ways to purchase the garments. The uniform suppliers were part of the working party and they have helped produce a top quality uniform at a very affordable price.
The governing body have given a commitment to help reduce the cost of the uniform for Year 11 pupils, as they will only be expected to wear the uniform for one year. In order to further support families, the Governing Body have also agreed that financial support would be available for children that are in receipt of Free School Meals as at May 1st 2018. Parents with multiple pupils at the school will also receive financial support if required. During the evening, the Chair of governors will provide information about how the school will contribute to the above. If any parents have issues surrounding the cost of the uniform not listed above, the school will assist on a case by case basis. The governors want to do everything possible to make sure all families will be able to afford the new uniform.
Unfortunately due to supply, cost and timing problems, there will not be an alternative uniform for consideration.
The Uniform working party unanimously agreed to select the uniform you will see tonight as the official uniform for Prestatyn High School.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of our school community who took part in the consultation process which helped guide the design and ultimate outcome.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Uniform Working Party for their hard work and effort on this project.
Assemblies for all pupils will take place after the launch evening to share this information.
Any other questions will be addressed at this meeting.
