Our Approach to Uniform
We believe that wearing uniform is an important part of being ready to learn and avoids the distraction of thinking about what to wear and what others are wearing. It also provides a good basis for adult life where many roles require employees to wear uniform or follow a dress code. The Headteacher and Governors of the school expect children to wear school uniform. We expect that all parents will support the school on this issue. In expecting children to wear uniform, we want to support parents by keeping it simple and controlling costs. Most items of uniform are widely available, other than the sweatshirt with a logo which is available from our uniform supplier, Uniform and Leisurewear, located at:
15 Common Garden Street, Lancaster (opposite Marketgate car park)
Fair Trade Uniform
The school is proud to offer an ethically manufactured school uniform option made with Fairtrade Cotton. You can order your own Fairtrade uniform from the Kool Skools website or ask for more information at the office. We aim to keep the price of uniform affordable by investigating all competitor manufacturers. With the exception of the blue sweatshirt with the school logo, all uniform items are available from supermarkets and high street shops.
Our PTA, MOORFS, supports parents by selling items of uniform at much reduced rates. Please contact the school for further information.
