At Kingsnorth CE Primary School we believe uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.
It can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils. Above all, we believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.
