Guardian Angels Catholic Primary School Uniform Policy
From September 2016
Guardian Angels is a fully uniformed school. The staff and governors believe that it instills a sense of pride, discipline and good order in the pupils. It adds to the sense of belonging and community and gives equality to all children. The children look smart and are good ambassadors for the school in their uniform.
- The following must be adhered to by pupils.
- Parents are strongly advised to ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with their child's name.
- We ask that parents send their children into school wearing the following items of uniform as detailed below.
