Why do we have uniform?
Our approach to uniform is in line with our school values.
Children should be ready for active playtimes and lessons including PE, at all times in the school day. We aim to reduce lost learning time in changing or searching for lost belongings.
Uniform is about respect. We foster our collective identity and we look smart to show respect for our school community.
We take responsibility for the impact of our uniform. We try to reduce cost and waste wherever we can. This sends clear messages to children about the need to take care of their things and of their environment, reducing unnecessary clutter and waste of resources.

Children may wear items of clothing associated with religious beliefs, such as a headscarf, in white, black or emerald green.
