Uniform

All pupils are expected to always wear uniform of the correct size and in good condition. Wearing the correct uniform in the correct manner is one of the ways that our pupils will show they take pride in themselves and in their school. We believe that uniform is one of the outward signs by which the local community recognises and makes judgements about our school and we wish those judgements to be entirely positive. We also believe that uniform contributes to creating a disciplined and well-ordered learning environment in school. Please find below the whole school uniform:
