It is our school policy that all children wear a school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to wear their shirts tucked into their skirts or trousers and to take pride in their appearance. Some items of uniform can be bought from school, while others are readily available, at very competitive prices, at local shops including supermarkets. A complete list of the items needed for school uniform including those for Physical Education is printed overleaf.
Aims and objectives
Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in our school;
- helps to create a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
- identifies the children with the school;
- supports our commitment to inclusion;
- prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting in class;
- is practical, smart and designed with health and safety in mind;
- is considered good value for money by most parents;
We believe that no school uniform should be so expensive that it leaves pupils or their families feeling unable to apply to, or attend, a school of their choice due to the cost of the uniform.
We keep the use of branded items to a minimum, meaning parents should be able to buy most uniform items from a wide range of shops. Branding is always optional for our parents/carers.
