Uniform Policy

School Uniform and Appearance

At St Richard Gwyn, uniform is compulsory and is designed as practical and inexpensive. We believe uniform can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for,  our school ethos; ensure students of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of young people. Above all, like many schools, we believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.

The expectations of the school are based on fairness backed by a strict application of our standards. When students fail to follow this policy they send out a message that they disregard the majority who comply with regulations. Sanctions may be applied when students do not wear full uniform and whose appearance does not meet our exacting standards. In the case of a genuine emergency we require a note of explanation to be written to the appropriate Director of Learning with an indication that the uniform issue will be rectified swiftly.

Our uniform is sustainably sourced from ethically accredited suppliers. Items are selected for their practical and hard wearing qualities, and some items may be purchased from other outlets. In order to ensure the correct style and cut of some items of uniform, these should only be bought from the supplier and will have the school logo embroidered on to allow us to check and maintain our high standards.

The following uniform was approved and adopted by the Governing Body of St Richard Gwyn in 2013 after consultation with all stakeholders.
