School Uniform

At The Oaks we take great pride in wearing our school uniform. Our uniform is an important and valued feature of the school’s traditions and ethos and contributes to the high standards set by the school. It is expected that all children wear full school uniform all of the time. All uniform must be labelled with the child’s name. Uniform that is not labelled is likely to get lost.

We believe that wearing school uniform has a positive impact:

  • It promotes a sense of pride
  • It engenders a sense of community and belonging
  • It makes identifying The Oaks pupils easy
  • It prevents the wearing of anything that might cause a distraction to learning
  • It promotes equality between pupils
  • It supports parents in providing an agreed set of clothes
  • It supports health and safety of the children
