1) Please provide a breakdown, for each of the last five academic years, including the current academic year, of all punishments issued for misconduct relating to uniform (e.g. wearing wrong uniform, not wearing uniform, wearing forbidden items, etc). For each incident please provide:
The nature of the punishment
