Students attending Priestlands School are required to wear a school uniform. It is designed to be comfortable, affordable and practical. It was developed in consultation with students, parents and staff. Our contact with parents in recent years has confirmed that the vast majority are in favour of uniform.
All Priestlands students have chosen to join the school knowing that we have a uniform. Therefore, they should be proud to represent our school, wearing their uniform with pride. It is an important part of the identity of the school.
We believe that school uniform is an important factor in helping us:
- encourage a sense of identity and belonging to the school;
- tackle inequality by removing the pressure on students to wear expensive fashion clothing;
- support parents by reducing the cost of schoolwear;
- promote school discipline and a work ethic amongst students;
- improve school security by making it easier to identify intruders.
All items of uniform are available from PMG Schoolwear. Parents are free to purchase some specified items elsewhere. If you choose to do so please ensure that you comply with the requirements set out below.
Uniform grants are available for students currently entitled to free school meals. At Priestlands the grant is £60.00 and is available to students in Years 7 and 10. Please contact the school reception for more information.
We try to keep some spare uniform for emergency use and are always very grateful for any uniform donations.
All items of uniform and equipment should be clearly named in full. ‘Initials’ are not sufficient to identify a child’s property.
If a student is unable to take part in the physical activity of a PE lesson, a note explaining why is required in their SRB. Students excused from physical activity are still required to bring and change into their PE kit; they will be fully involved in a coaching or officiating role.
The school reserves the right to take disciplinary action against any student whose uniform does not comply with the following requirements.
