School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school, supporting effective teaching and learning. School uniform helps to:
- instil pride;
- support positive behaviour and discipline;
- encourage identity with, and support for, the school ethos;
- ensure children of all races and backgrounds feel welcome;
- protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way;
- nurture community cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of students.
