UNIFORM

 

Uniform is an important part of a school’s identity. It reinforces who we are as a community and helps allow pupils to feel pride in their school. It also ensures pupils are not put under any pressure because of the type of clothes they wear and all are treated equally. It also helps prepare pupils for life after school where many will have to dress smartly for work.

We recognise that, for families, purchasing uniform and ensuring a child arrives to school dressed appropriately can be a stressful time. To ensure clarity, the school has created a uniform guide designed to support families, and students, with the process by outlining our expectations which, in turn, will help everyone understand our expectations.

Our intention is to ensure that students look smart but not at the undue expense of families. We have ensured as a school that the cost of our uniform is affordable yet of the highest quality. All official items (blazer, tie and sports kit) are only available at our uniform supplier, Kids School Kits by Pretty Miss (Cwmbran).  However, all other items can be purchased from any clothing store or supermarket. We do not expect every item to be purchased from a single supplier, but it must match the uniform guidance exactly.

We ask that all items of school uniform and sports kit are clearly marked with the student’s name for ease of identification.
