School Uniform

The school is aware that parents welcome a standard dress for their children; this avoids the dictates of fashion and keeps down expense.  The Governors know it is important that students should have a sense of belonging and common purpose, which is encouraged by a uniform so that social difference should be avoided.

Every student must adhere to this policy which has the total support of the Governing Body.Capture

We have a clear policy on Uniform, including footwear, and request our students to wear all black shoes. Trainers are not permitted.

As we approach the final weeks of term, we know many parents/carers will already be thinking about purchasing the correct items of equipment and uniform for their children and, with the help of Wynsors shoes, we’ve produced a booklet of example footwear which is acceptable under our Uniform policy.

Please note that this information is a helpful guide only. Parents/carers do not have to shop at Wynsors and are free to purchase appropriate footwear wherever they would prefer.

Please check with your child’s Director of Learning if you are unsure whether your choice of footwear will be acceptable under our Uniform policy
