Within our school we promote an atmosphere which encourages effort, enjoyment and a celebration of the
achievements of all our pupils. Our concern for these high standards is also reflected in the pride we take in our school
uniform and the feeling of belonging it creates.

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school
organised event outside of normal school hours, except in Nursery where parents may choose if children wear uniform.


Aims and Objectives

The uniform is part of our school ethos and in coming to Snapethorpe Primary School, parents agree to support our

Our policy for uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:

• Promotes a sense of pride in the school and it has a positive impact on behaviour and attitudes in school;
• Develops a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
• Identifies children with our school when taking part in out of school educational activities and visits;
• Is practical and looks smart;
• Makes children feel equal to others in terms of appearance;
• Is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes and hairstyles can be);
• Is regarded as suitable wear for school and considered by most parents as good value for money;
• Is designed with health and safety in mind.

Hairstyles should be reasonable and appropriate for being in a learning environment at school. Extreme hairstyles would
include shaved patterns in the scalp, Mohicans and unnaturally coloured dyes. Such hairstyles are not acceptable at
school. All children, girls and boys, are required to have their hair tied back, if long enough, for PE, DT and Cookery
