Their child’s protected characteristics
The cost of the uniform
Parents are expected to lodge any complaints or objections relating to the school uniform in a timely and reasonable manner.
Disputes about the cost of the school uniform will be:
Dealt with in accordance with our school’s complaints policy
The school will work closely with parents to arrive at a mutually acceptable outcome.
Our school has a duty to make sure that the uniform we require is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform.
We understand that items with distinctive characteristics (such as branded items, or items that have to have a school logo or a unique fabric/colour/design) cannot be purchased from a wide range of retailers and that requiring many such items limits parents’ ability to ‘shop around’ for a low price.
We will make sure our uniform:
Is available at a reasonable cost
Provides the best value for money for parents/carers
We will do this by:
Carefully considering whether any items with distinctive characteristics are necessary
Limiting any items with distinctive characteristics where possible
Limiting items with distinctive characteristics to low-cost and/or long-lasting items, such as ties
Considering cheaper alternatives to school-branded items, such as logos that can be ironed on, as long as this doesn’t compromise quality and durability
Avoiding specific requirements for items pupils could wear on non-school days, such as coats, bags and shoes
Keeping the number of optional branded items to a minimum, so that the school’s uniform can act as a social leveller
Avoiding different uniform requirements for different year/class/house groups
Avoiding different uniform requirements for extra-curricular activities
Considering alternative methods for signalling differences in groups for interschool competitions, such as creating posters or labels
Making sure that arrangements are in place for parents to acquire second-hand uniform items
Avoiding frequent changes to uniform specifications and minimising the financial impact on parents of any changes
Consulting with parents and pupils on any proposed significant changes to the uniform policy and carefully considering any complaints about the policy

Throughout the school year there will be days when the children will be asked to come to school wearing clothes that are not their school uniform orPE kit.
We are mindful of the number of these days, their frequency and the reason for them (raising money for charity, showing support for an event etc).
On days when children are not wearing their uniform please make sure the clothes they wear to school support the children being active at playtime and lunchtime, are appropriate for the temperature, footwear must be secure around the ankles.
Younger children must still be able to manage the toilet independently. Clothes should also not have accessories etc that cause distraction during learning time.
All children have outdoor shoes to wear to support being active which they will continue to change into on these days.
Football kits are permitted.
