The uniform is determined by the Governors and is reviewed from time to time.
The school uniform has been selected to:
a. give pupils pride in their appearance and in their school;
b. train pupils in presenting themselves smartly;
c. enable pupils to dress well, irrespective of their home economic circumstances, in clothes that are cheaply available, yet practical and hardwearing.
ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
It is the responsibility of all school staff to ensure the uniform rules are upheld. Class teachers should perform a uniform check daily and keep a log of indiscretions. The School Manager should be informed of any persistent breaches of school uniform and will contact home to resolve the situation as swiftly and calmly as possible.
If parents have any concerns about uniform, they should contact school as early as possible and we will support as much as reasonably possible. If there are any doubts about the suitability of any item, it is useful to ring the school before the item is bought.
All uniform items and other equipment should be clearly marked with the pupil’s name. Exemption:
Very rarely, a specific exemption to an item of uniform requirement may be applied for. This is not usually granted for any reason other than on medical grounds, in which case written application should be made to the Headteacher. Other requests on religious or compassionate grounds should also be made through the Headteacher. We also allow pupils to come to school in non-uniform on their birthday.

- White Polo shirts or white cotton shirts,
Black or Grey Skirts, Pinafore dresses or Trousers
