Uniforms and School Dress Code Requirements


The Aveley Primary School community believes a dress code:

  • Establishes and enhances the image of the school.
  • Establishes school spirit and teamwork.
  • Ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities.
  • Encourages equality among students.
  • Prepares students for work, as many work places have dress and safety codes.

The wearing of the school uniform at all times is encouraged. Children representing the school in any capacity (eg; choir, sport) must be properly attired. The following range of clothing has been approved by the Aveley Primary School Board and is available from Lowes in the Ellenbrook Shops. Uniform price lists are available through the front office. Clothing which is of the same style and colour may be purchased from alternate sources.

Procedures for Managing Non-Compliance with the Dress Code

  • Step 1: Teacher to discuss with student.
  • Step 2: Letter sent home from classroom teacher to parents to provide an explanation on non-compliance.
  • Step 3: Parents are contacted by administration to ascertain the reason for continued non-compliance.

As per the School Education Act 2000, Regulation 36, if a non-complying student is enrolled in a primary program, sanctions will be limited to the following actions only:

  • preventing the student from attending any activity in which the student would have been representing the school; or
  • preventing the student from attending or participating in any school activity which, in the opinion of the principal, is not part of the educational program.


An application for exemption and any exemption granted may apply to individuals, all students at the school or to all students in a specific category. Where an exemption applies, students should still be neat and dressed in accordance with other provisions in the school’s dress code. Under Regulation 35(2) of the School Education Regulations 2000, the principal may provide an exemption on any of the following grounds:

  • the unavailability of an item.
  • a matter relating to the student’s health.
  • a matter relating to the religious beliefs of the student or the student’s family.
  • a matter relating to the cultural background of the student or the student’s family; or
  • any other matter which in the principal’s opinion is sufficient to exempt the student from complying with the requirement.

Under Regulation 35(4) of the School Education Regulations 2000, the details of an exemption must include:

  • Each requirement of the dress code which the student is exempt from complying with.
  • The time period for which the exemption has effect.
