Recently we felt a decision needed to be made regarding our uniform/tracksuit. It was felt by many that as we are an 'active school' whereby the children now take part in several movement/active breaks during the day, that this was difficult to do in a uniform. The children expressed that they preferred the tracksuit as it was warmer and more comfortable. We decided therefore to survery the pupils, staff & parents to assertain their views about the current uniform to give us a broader view.
Below are the overall results:
- Parents: Keep tracksuit only/modernise it, get rid of uniform.
- Staff: Modernise tracksuit, get rid of uniform.
- Children: Modernise tracksuit, get rid of uniform.
We are very aware of financial costs to parents, therefore, there will be no change to the uniform this year. We will be looking at options to update our tracksuit over the next number of months. Any changes made will be phased in to avoid any unecessary changes or extra expense to parents. Children can wear their tracksuits only in the meantime, however, if they prefer to wear the uniform that is fine too. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey.
