Uniform Policy

Our school expects all students to be smart and well presented for school, but we also have a duty to make sure that the uniform we require is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform.

We understand the financial burden of school uniform and we have tried to limit our branded items to the school, blazer, tie and some elements of the PE kit. Where possible we have ensured that families can shop from a wide range of retailers to source shirts and trousers and items , such as branded jumpers, are options

We will make sure our uniform:

Is available at a reasonable cost and provides the best value for money for parents/carers

We will do this by:

Carefully considering whether branded items are necessary

working with our suppliers to negotiate fair costs

Avoiding specific requirements for items pupils could wear on non-school days, such as coats, bags and shoes

Keeping the number of optional branded items to a minimum, so that the school’s uniform can act as a social leveler

Avoiding different uniform requirements for different year/class/house groups

Avoiding different uniform requirements for extra-curricular activities

Making sure that arrangements are in place for parents to acquire second-hand uniform items

Avoiding frequent changes to uniform specifications and minimising the financial impact on parents of any changes

Consulting with parents and pupils on any proposed significant changes to the uniform policy and carefully considering any complaints about the policy.
