School Uniform

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.

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 and equality it creates.
All children are required to wear uniform when attending the school or when participating in an school organised event outside normal school hours, when stated. The uniform is part of our school ethos and in coming to Warbstow Primary Academy, parents agree to support us with this.  
Our uniform requirements are:
  • Navy jumper or cardigan (school logo optional)
  • Plain gold polo shirt
  • Dark grey/black trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore
