The Governors of both schools strongly promote the wearing of school uniform and expect children to dress appropriately. We believe the wearing of school uniform helps to create a sense of community and probably makes preparation for school in the morning easier for parents/carers.

The wearing of a school uniform has a strong correlation between good behaviour and high attendance. Additionally the uniform children are expected to wear and the guidelines below aim to support an environment that is safe &  healthy for children and staff.

School uniforms with logos can be purchased through ‘Birds of Dereham’ for both schools. There are also numerous retail outlets that stock appropriate plain school uniforms at affordable prices which meet the expectations for uniform detailed in this policy. In the case of hardship please arrange to discuss the situation in confidence with the Headteacher.
