School Uniform Policy
From September 2019 school uniform will be compulsory for all pupils. This decision is based on the following rationale:
- To bring us in line with the expectations of the other 2 special schools in the authority, Highbury and Ravenscliffe.
- To have a consistency in approach to uniform
- To strengthen our sense of community
- From a safety aspect, children are more easily recognisable when out in the community.
- A uniform provides a clear, consistent object of reference for our children to relate to school, which supports their understanding of routines and transitions.
Our school uniform will consist of:
As many children already wear our uniform, to support families financially we are happy for the old style uniform to be phased out over a period of time, but for all future uniform purchases, please buy the new colours as the old style uniform will no longer be available from our outlets.
