School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of Kelvin Hall and setting the appropriate tone. In common with most schools in England, we have a school uniform and rules on appearance that we require all students to follow.
We believe that the wearing of a uniform:
supports positive behaviour and discipline;
encourages school ethos and identity;
ensures all students are included and feel welcome;
protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way;
promotes good relationships.
Above all, we believe that school uniform indicates a student’s readiness for work and therefore supports effective teaching and learning.
