Uniform

Uniform

Our school has a uniform and we expect all families to support us in it being worn correctly. Non-uniform items of clothing should not be worn with our school uniform and these may be confiscated. Our uniform is reflective of our school culture and therefore it needs to be worn correctly at all times.
