Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."

School Uniform

The aim of the school is to have pupils dress with a school identity in a smart, affordable and practical way, which conforms to standards of decency and safety and enables all pupils to be seen and therefore treated equally. The school uniform shows that pupils belong to our school community and should be worn with pride. School Uniform is a requirement for being part of our school and is compulsory for all pupils.

The school expects all parents who accept a place at Thorney Close Primary School to comply with compulsory school uniform standards.
