The wearing of School Uniform is required as an integral part of school discipline as it is considered that this promotes positive attitudes, good standards and a suitable image in the eyes of the local community.
All pupils are encouraged to be proud of their appearance and of their uniform.
School Uniform is detailed in the handbook issued to parents of new entrants in September, and must be worn to and from school as well as on the premises.
All items of School Uniform should be clearly labelled with name and form.
