Our Dress Code
We believe that our school should set high standards of dress and therefore we encourage all children to wear school uniform. By wearing school uniform, children will be able to identify with the school and feel part of our school community. All items of clothing should be clearly marked.
Although our school suppliers are Elizabeth’s Embroidery, all items in our dress code can be substituted by matching alternatives from supermarkets or other suppliers.
