SCHOOL UNIFORM AND APPEARANCE
Our school uniform is important to us. It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life. It promotes harmony between different groups represented in the school, and it enhances security, assisting the school to identify individual pupils in order to maintain good order, and to more easily spot those who shouldn't be on the school site.
Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.
The school believes that a school uniform is important because it:
- looks smart
- wears well
- is cost effective
- contributes to a sense of belonging
- gives a common purpose
- fosters a feeling of pride
- reduces ‘fashion competition’ between children
- prepares students well for similar demands in the workplace in future years
All children should wear the uniform and we encourage them to maintain an acceptable standard of clean and tidy dress in school. It reflects the needs of the cultural traditions represented at Richmond School. The uniform list sets out the details of the uniform that we expect students to wear.

In all cases, it is for the school to decide what is and is not acceptable school wear. Official uniform items are available from School Shop
