Uniform Exemptions – Jewellery and non-DC clothing items

Posted: September 30, 2020

Now that we have been able to resume on-campus learning, we continue to uphold our uniform policies, including with regard to non-DC clothing items and jewellery. For students requiring uniform exemptions for their children (e.g. wearing an item of jewellery for religious reasons that would not ordinarily fit within the DC Uniform Code), parents are reminded of the need to write to the Head of Primary or Head of Secondary (as appropriate). We have extended the deadline for this – parents are now requested to do this by Friday 16 October in order for approval to be considered. After this date, any such items will not be permitted apart from where approval has been granted and staff will be proactive in ensuring this expectation is met. The DC Uniform Code is viewable via the Parent and Student Handbook.
