School uniform and PE kit is available to order direct from our specialist supplier, Sportswear International (SWI).
Trousers and skirts can be bought from Skoolkit, however if parents choose to buy skirts and trousers from elsewhere then they should mirror those from the Skoolkit site, particularly in length of skirt.
Skoolkit order terms/returns/delivery costs can be found on their website here and differ from the information below, which is purely for SWI orders.
To try and assist parents with the online ordering process we have created some additional guidance which you can download by clicking here, or from the helpful links section to the side of this page.
Orders must be received by Monday 6th August 2018 in order to guarantee delivery in time for September 2018.
Orders over £70 are delivered to home free of charge within 2 – 5 working days.
Orders under £70 sent to a home address (or other specified) incur a £4 delivery charge, however you can have your order delivered to the school on a weekly basis FREE OF CHARGE (collection will be every Thursday afternoon during term-time).
Returns & Exchanges
Sportswear International offer a 30 day FREE OF CHARGE returns and exchange policy.
Following consultation the governors, parents, staff and students of Woodlands Community College believe that a college uniform is important for the following reasons:
It improves behaviour and reduces distractions
It encourages a sense of equality
It reduces bullying
It helps students feel connected to the college and belong to it
It helps prepare students for the world of work and to raise their aspirations
It develops a sense of pride in their college amongst students
It helps students to feel safe
The agreed uniform meets the criteria drawn up by the above groups that it should be affordable, comfortable, smart, practical and aspirational.
Enforcement of the uniform policy
It is the responsibility of all staff to enforce the uniform policy throughout the day as part of the day to day running of the college. Students found not to be in the correct uniform will be asked to remedy the situation immediately. If they cannot they will be issued a C2. Persistent refusal to follow school uniform rules may result in further sanctions. If there are genuine and exceptional reasons why a student is not in correct uniform parents and carers are encouraged to write a note explaining why their child is not in uniform and the student should show this to their Assistant House Leader.
Issues arising from the uniform policy
Requests to vary the uniform requirements for particular reasons, such as medical needs or religious beliefs, will always be considered carefully.

Miss Iverson sent a letter home regarding this change back in March, which can now be downloaded here.
Miss Iverson has since sent a further letter of clarification on 7th May, which can be downloaded here.
