The Rockingham Beach Primary Campus community believes a school dress code:
- fosters and enhances the public image of the campus;
- assists in building school and team spirit;
- allows quick identification of our students and promotes a safer school environment;
- ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities;
- promotes equity among students; and
- fosters an understanding amongst students that being suitably groomed is an expectation of any future workplace.
The School Board strongly supports the school in insisting that all children wear the approved school uniform, with particular reference to excursions and interschool sporting activities. Students not following the dress code may be denied the opportunity to represent their school at official school activities including choir, sporting and social events.

All clothing items are available from the Uniform Shop. Orders are managed through the P & C Association. Second-hand school clothes are available at the school. Families who may experience financial difficulties regarding the purchase of a uniform, should contact the Principal or the P & C uniform coordinator.
Children are required to wear suitable footwear for health and safety reasons. Appropriate footwear includes sandals, joggers, shoes and socks. Inappropriate footwear includes high heels or platform shoes, thongs or slip-ons and ugg boots. Sandals are not considered appropriate during winter and autumn.
Make-up and Hair Styles:
When students are in uniform, make-up (mascara, nail polish etc) is not to be worn. While the school recognises that students may like to express their individuality through wearing a range of hair styles, radical hairstyles are discouraged and the colouring of hair (with the exception of temporary colouring for school sports days) is not acceptable or compatible with the school uniform philosophy.
Department of Education policy discourages the wearing of jewellery to school. Dangling earrings, long necklaces and bracelets can become a personal safety issue. If children need to wear rings or bracelets for health or specific reasons, parents are required to write a note explaining the reason. No responsibility will be accepted by the school for the loss or damage of jewellery.
Modification to the Dress Code
Students who, for religious or health reasons, may wish to modify the school dress code are required to make an appointment with the Principal. Staff will be informed of any student granted a modification to the dress code.
