    The Governing Body supports our Headteacher and teaching staff in maintaining the high standard of appearance of all pupils. The appearance of pupils reflects the school, and it is therefore important that all pupils adhere to the uniform regulations. We are confident that parents/carers share this view and will support the school by ensuring that pupils attend school wearing the correct uniform.
