School Uniform

The wearing of the regulation school uniform is seen as maintaining a sense of identity, equality and pride in belonging to the school and as the means by which our pupils are distinguished in the wider community.  Pupils are therefore required to wear school uniform correctly at all times (including travelling to and from school) and to be neat and tidy in appearance.  The wearing of the correct uniform in the school will be monitored closely.  Pupils who choose not to wear the school uniform correctly will be identified by the appropriate Year Head and appropriate action/s taken.
