UNIFORM

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. 

Our policy is based on the notion that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • supports positive behaviour and discipline
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the children with the school, and encourages identity with the school
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • prevents children coming to school in fashion or ‘designer’ label clothes that could be distracting in class or create a sense of competition
  • is regarded as suitable and good value for money, by most parents.

We believe that one of the responsibilities of parents/carers is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and PE kit, and that it is clean, in good repair and that the child’s name is written on all items.  If a parent/carer has difficulty for any reason in fulfilling this request, they are asked to speak confidentially to a senior member of staff to discuss the issue.  Parents/Carers should be assured that we will do all we can to help. 

Children who arrive in school wearing non-uniform items will be loaned an item from shared-uniform for the day.  The same system will apply for children who do not have PE kit.  Children who come to school with their hair loose, will be loaned a ‘bobble’ to tie it up. 

The school welcomes children from all faith and ethnic backgrounds.  If there are serious reasons, for example, on religious grounds, why parents/carers want their child to wear clothes which differ from uniform, the school will consider such requests sympathetically.

If your child has a disability which makes the wearing of an item of uniform impractical, please bring this to our attention.

If any parent/carer would like to request a modification to the school’s uniform policy they should, in the first instance, contact the Headteacher.
