School Uniform

School Uniform

Our uniform policy reflects our values and reinforces our school's culture of high expectations.  All our pupils are expected to dress according to our uniform policy.  Our uniform is important to us and is a way in which we identify ourselves as a school community, promoting a strong cohesive identity, which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.  Our uniform also promotes harmony between different groups represented in the school and enhances security.


We ask parents and carers to support all the decisions made by school staff, regarding whether or not clothing is appropriate or inappropriate for school.


All children have equal access to wearing school uniform, regardless of their culture, race, religion, gender, disability or ability.  We ensure that the set uniform is affordable and most items are available from local stores and supermarkets.  We do not expect parents to buy uniform with a logo however, our sweatshirts, fleeces, PE T-shirts, book bags and gym bags which have the logo embroidered or screen printed are available from our on-line supplier at

Religion and our School Uniform
