School uniform plays a vital role in promoting the ethos of a school, providing a sense of belonging and identity and setting an appropriate tone for education. By creating a common identity amongst all pupils, regardless of background, a school uniform can also act as a social leveller.
The “Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Act 2021” states that all stipulated school uniform items must be affordable for all and any branded items, purchased through uniform suppliers, offer value for money. This statutory guidance came into effect in September 2022.
The Aspire Uniform Policy, formed in part by parent/pupil voice, ensures each individual uniform offering across the trust is in line with this legislation and helps maintain the balance between affordability and upholding of school ethos and identity.
Delabole Primary School has a basic school uniform which we believe makes the children look smart and provides them with a sense of belonging and feeling of pride. Please note that denim clothing is not permitted. Heeled shoes are not recommended for school. (Children need the freedom to jump and run at playtimes which heeled shoes do not allow.)
Jewellery other than earring studs is not permitted. However, watches are encouraged.
Red sweatshirt with the school logo (optional), grey or black trousers/shorts or skirts, and white polo shirts.
In the summer there is the option of red and white checked dresses.
