School Uniform

Why is uniform important?

At South Wonston Primary School we expect all children to wear school uniform. We believe wearing a uniform encourages pride in the school and contributes towards a school identity.

The Department of Education strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can play a key role in:

  • Promoting the ethos of a school
  • Providing a sense of belonging and identity
  • Setting an appropriate tone for education

What is our school uniform?

  • Red sweatshirt or cardigan with or without school logo
  • Grey school skirt or grey/black trousers or shorts
  • White polo shirt with or without school logo
  • Red checked or striped school dress (summer)
  • Grey or white socks or grey, black, red or white tights
  • Black low heeled school shoes – no trainers or boots

  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Plain and unbranded black, navy or grey jumper/zipped hooded sweatshirt
