At Rokeby Primary School, we encourage our children to take pride in their appearance when attending school. A full list of uniform that the children will be expected to wear is shown on the attached Uniform Policy. Jumpers, cardigans, polo shirts and book bags can be purchased directly from the school.
School uniforms have a positive effect on students AND teachers!
School uniforms promote a single standard of dress. resulting in school environments become less competitive and more focused on learning. Similarly, research has shown there is a link between a student's appearance and teachers' expectations. High expectations means high achievement!
School uniforms boost school spirit!
Helping to build a sense of belonging within the school, uniforms create an atmosphere of community. This essence of unity can positively effect a child's attitude toward school and can lead to better learning and improved attendance. A child excited about school is a child ready to learn!
School uniforms promote a safe, healthy learning environment!
Education professionals agree that a safe school environment is essential for learning to take place. The safer the environment, the more likely children will achieve. Uniforms make it easier for school staff to identify non-pupils while promoting a safe and comfortable atmosphere.
School uniforms make mornings easier!
Uniforms eliminate the need to decide what to wear to school everyday. Through simplicity, uniforms promote time efficiency, organisation, and neatness. Parents and pupils agree that getting the morning off right is the key to a productive and happy day.
School uniforms are cost-effective.
Uniforms are less expensive than other types of clothing. A student can easily be outfitted with easy-care, long-lasting uniforms for a very reasonable amount - and there is no risk to expensive out of school clothing.
School uniforms encourage individual self-expression.
With uniforms, pupils find other ways to express themselves creatively, rather than through their clothes - through the arts, music, sports, personality and academic achievement.
