We believe a uniform allows all children, regardless of background, to feel equal to their peers and confident in their appearance. We also believe it is important for activities to be facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing such as sports-specific attire.
Furthermore, we are committed to promoting equality and value for money, and to ensuring that no child is unfairly discriminated against.
In this context, we make all reasonable endeavours to support the Department for Education’s non-statutory guidance (published November 2021) advising on access to, requirements for, and the costs associated with, school uniform.
The Guidance can be found here:
