School Uniform

School Uniform

The school has a dress code that helps identify everyone as part of our school team and encourages pride in the school. All the major items of dress can be purchased from local supermarkets and parents can purchase fleeces and sweatshirts with the school logo from local school uniform providers. Our Uniform Policy can be found below.

Rationale

We believe that the wearing of uniform encourages children to have a sense of belonging and of being part of the community, which impacts positively on their wellbeing. It is an outward expression of the school’s identity and promotes a feeling of pride and equality. In addition, we believe that the wearing of a ‘uniform’, as opposed to leisure wear, contributes to helping children understand that they come to school to work and learn.

Aims

• To ensure that children wear clothing which is safe and practical.

• To promote pride/ambition in their school and a sense of identity.

• To promote the idea of Westleigh Methodist Primary School as a learning

community and we expect exceptional standards.

• To promote the image of the school within the local area and the town.

• To eliminate competition amongst children in relation to what they wear

(preventing bullying).

• To ensure that the uniform is simple, high quality and reasonably priced.

Please ensure that all items of clothing are marked with your child’s name.
