School Uniform

At Clifton-upon-Dunsmore Primary School, it is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school organised event outside normal school hours unless specified for particular events and activities.   

We believe that a school uniform promotes:

  • a sense of pride in the school,
  • encourages a feeling of community and belonging,
  • is practical and smart,
  • identifies children with the school,
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be),
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance,
  • is regarded as suitable and good value for money by most parents,
  • has been designed with safety in mind.

We expect all children to adhere to the correct uniform code and take pride in themselves and our school.
