Arden Primary School

Every Child, Every Opportunity

Uniform Information

At Arden, children must wear school uniform every day.

Our uniform is a visual statement of the values of the school and, by wearing the uniform, it shows that you and your child adhere to the school’s values, conduct and beliefs. It says “I belong, I am included and I am part of the Arden community.”

We believe that the wearing of school uniform also:

  • promotes equality and inclusion;
  • ensures the safety of pupils when on and off the school site;
  • reduces peer pressure, bullying, social divides and distractions; and
  • allows the children to be judged on who they are and not on what they wear.
