On Friday 3rd December 2021, schools, colleges, and universities across the UK are being invited to hold a unique non-uniform day in honour of the millions of people who have served in the NHS and emergency services. This is part of a campaign called #UniteTheUniforms for the 999Cenotaph.
Pupils will be invited to wear the colours of the emergency services (red, blue, green or orange) OR dress as their favourite superhero and be asked to donate £1.
Donations will go towards building the UK’s first ‘Emergency Services Cenotaph’ which is supported by His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, the Prime Minister and First Ministers of NI, Scotland and Wales.
The usual non-uniform rules apply:
- Normal jewellery rules apply.
- Students may wear light make-up
- No ripped jeans
- No false nails
- No crop tops
- No short skirts or shorts
Students that do not wish to take part must be in full school uniform as normal.
