Uniform

 

School Uniform Policy

The Governors of Newcroft Primary Academy have decided that there is an expectation that children will wear school uniform for the following reasons:

  • to foster respect and pride in appearance;
  • to help establish a positive attitude to school;
  • to differentiate between leisure and school time and associated expectations;
  • to help reinforce the sense of belonging and corporate identity;
  • to encourage children to recognise what the outside world expects;
  • to prepare children for secondary school.
