'Learning together to make a difference'

Uniform & Equipment

Why do we have a school uniform?

  • School uniforms give a sense of community identity - we are all in this together
  • School uniforms help with routine and make getting ready for school easier - you don't have to worry about choosing what to wear and you always know which items needs to be clean and ready in advance
  • School uniforms promote safety and learning - they are appropriate for the task and weather, are non-distracting, and make it quicker for staff to identify pupils when out on trips etc
  • School uniforms promote equality and prevent bullying - pupils feel the same and are not worried or jealous about having the latest expensive trends
  • School uniforms prevent expensive fashion items from being damaged, lost or stolen
  • School uniforms help with good discipline - studies have shown that schools with uniforms in general have better discipline than schools which do not, they are a visible sign of following school rules
  • School uniforms set a standard of dress - preventing inappropriate clothing and embarrassing situations
  • School uniforms encourage respect for traditions, high expectations for self, and professional attitudes for the future - pupils learn to accept responsibility for dressing appropriately to their situation
