School uniforms promote a positive self-image and a feeling of community among students.
At RISE we wear a school uniform and have dress code guidelines. We believe this promotes a positive school image, helps to remove distractions, and keeps students focused on learning. We take pride in how our students dress.
We think that a high standard of attire reminds our students that school is a formal environment where they have an important job to do – learning – which is the key to a successful career later on in life.
Our School Uniform Policy indicates that students should wear school uniform except for PE days, when they should wear the school PE uniform.
Before and After School Care
Our beautiful building allows us to supervise students very well during the school day when all staff is in school. Our policy states that, outside of the timetabled learning hours, all students must be supervised at all times.
Our school day starts at 7.45am, with a morning assembly. Students are to enter the classrooms and start the school day at 8am. The earliest they may be dropped off at school is 7.15am and they are supervised by our staff. The latest they should be picked up by parents/caregivers is 3.30pm.
Health & Safety
Starting from KS 2, we develop a culture where all our pupils have a voice and can play an active role in decisions that affect their learning and wellbeing, as set out in Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
Our active school council is one essential aspect of our approach to pupil participation and we recognise the benefits of increased self-confidence and a greater sense of responsibility that pupil participation brings.
The council benefits our whole school in providing opportunities for the students to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made and is an important way for RISE to provide leadership and development opportunities for our students.
