The wearing of school uniform is not an option but an obligation. It is expected that parents and children will honour this agreement and make every effort to uphold the desired standard of dress.
Any parent experiencing financial problems in purchasing articles of uniform should initially contact the Office or arrange to meet with the Headteacher.
The intentions of adopting a school uniform are:
- to give all children a sense of corporate identity - of ‘belonging’ to Twydall Primary School;
- to standardise items of clothing worn for school;
- to maintain a neat and clean appearance that will hopefully be transferred to other aspects of children’s education;
- to ease confrontation between parent/carer and child about what should be worn to school;
- to enable our children to be easily identifiable as belonging to the Twydall Community during school trips and visits.
These intentions will be communicated to parents/carers and children on appropriate occasions or when the need arises.
We hope that all those involved in the school community, staff, parents/carers and children will share these intentions and enforce the democratically reached decision for children to wear school uniform.
