School Uniform

Penygaer Uniform

There are many arguments for and against uniform but  consistency in school uniform will raise the profile of the school in a positive manner. It creates a sense of belonging and unity. A smart uniform presents an image of high standards and high expectations. 

A number of years ago it was important that  we should consult stakeholders in the school on the way forward with regard to uniform. The short survey revealed that 95% of parents agreed that pupils should be expected to wear uniform. The governing body fully agreed that we should change our policy on uniform.

Consequently, we request that all pupils wear school uniform every day unless there is a valid reason.

Your child’s name should not be printed on the back of a sweatshirt or hoody. This is a child protection matter (please consider the potential risks of a stranger with bad intentions finding out your child’s name). This issue has been discussed in several head teachers’ meetings and the Education Authority has agreed to instruct local suppliers of uniform not to print children’s names on uniform.  If your child already has his/her name on an item of clothing please assess the risk before deciding whether or not to continue using it.
