Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of the school uniform.
Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing.. Pupils are expected to be of a neat and tidy appearance and parents are reminded that unsuitable footwear is a hazard on stairs and can cause an accident. The wearing of jeans or inappropriate logos on t-shirts or sweatshirts is to be discouraged. Football strips are not allowed.
