St Chad's Catholic Primary School

Uniform

Statement of Intent

 It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. 

 

Aims and Objectives

 Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • is practical and smart;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.
