School Uniform

School Uniform

Wearing school uniform plays a valuable role in helping our children to feel like they are part of the “The First Steps”. It also helps to instil a sense of pride, it supports positive behaviour and discipline, it ensures pupils from all races and backgrounds feel welcome, it protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way, it nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils.

As we continue to grow our school, having confident children able to embrace new challenges is of vital importance. Securing the right atmosphere in school is critical to our success.

Therefore school uniform is an important aspect of school life as it plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school in many ways. Parents are asked to ensure that their children conform to the dress code at all times. In addition, we request that all items of school uniform are clearly labelled with the child’s name as uniform is mislaid on a regular basis.
