The aims of a school uniform are:
• To ensure all children are dressed appropriately for school and school activities

• To standardise items of clothing worn for school
• To maintain a neat and clean appearance that will hopefully be transferred to other aspects of
• To ease confrontation between parent and pupil about what should be worn to school;
We feel that children should be proud to belong to Norton St Nicholas CofE (VA) Primary School and that wearing uniform is an integral part of belonging to our school. We are committed to providing a teaching environment conducive to learning. Each child is valued, respected and challenged regardless of race, gender, religion, social background, culture or disability. 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. We hope that all those involved in the school community, staff, parents, children will share these intentions. Any parent experiencing problems in purchasing articles of uniform should initially contact the Office or arrange to meet with the Family Support Worker or Headteacher.
