School Uniform

School uniform is worn to encourage the development of self-confidence and pride in the school and a high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students.

Respect is one of our core values and uniform at Willow Primary School is an important part of instilling pride and high expectations, protecting students and supporting effective teaching and learning.

At Willow Primary School we believe:

  • A school uniform promotes a sense of pride in the school and reinforces our core values.
  • Promotes a feeling of community and belonging
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Is not a distraction in class
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable
  • Is good value for money
