There is an expectation that all pupils from Reception to Year 6 at Windrush Church of England Primary School should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school events outside normal school hours. All children are expected to wear the uniform correctly, to present themselves smartly at all times and to represent the school with pride when wearing our uniform.

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

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be)
  • Puts children in a ‘working’ mindset
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable by most parents
  • Has been designed with health and safety in mind
