Purpose

To give families, students and staff a clear understanding of what is expected when attending our school.

Woodcroft Primary School is proud of its school uniform and it serves several important purposes:

  • It helps establish the school’s identity and allows students to gain a sense of being part of the school community
  • It helps identify students when they are out of school on excursion
  • Ensures the health and safety of students
Scope

This policy applies to all current students of Woodcroft Primary School.
