The wearing of uniform indicates pride in personal appearance, acceptance of shared goals and support for the values Lampton School seeks to achieve. Uniform creates a sense of community.
Parents are asked to support the school in their efforts to maintain a high standard of dress by being aware of the uniform rules, ensuring appropriate clothing is bought when it is to be used for school and encouraging and maintaining their son / daughter in the dress code of the school. Parents should also ensure that all items are labelled with the child’s name.
If students forget their school bag, blazer or do not wear the correct shoes, trousers or skirt; they will be expected to wear the school issued uniform based in Student Services for the day. Failure to comply would represent a severe breach of the school behaviour policy.
