Hilperton's School Uniform

We believe that school uniform is important because;
 
*It contributes to a sense of belonging an fosters a feeling of pride in our school.
*It takes away the need for children to decide what to wear on a daily basis.
*Children need not be worried about issues of fashion or competitive dressing.
*It promotes equality of opportunity.
*It looks smart and makes a firm distinction between hoemand school, promoting a more purposeful attitude to work and learning.
 
We ask that all children wear the uniform and we encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress. The existence of a school uniform does create an even greater need for all items of clothing to be marked with the owner's name.
