Dress code – Uniform

At Woodland Grove Primary School we understand that students thrive in a learning environment that is welcoming, inclusive, collaborative and caring.

Our Student Dress Code is one way in which we promote a sense of community, identity and safety for all students. Our aim is to establish a climate that is supportive, non- discriminatory, equitable and safe and having a standard Dress Code helps us to achieve this goal.

Honouring our school Dress Code strengthens pride in our school and promotes a positive image. Our uniform identifies our students ensuring their safety throughout the school day and whilst on excursions and is intended to reduce peer pressure for students and families by alleviating issues of competition and purchasing of expensive brand name clothing.
