Bonneygrove School Uniform
Sense of pride in our school
Our school uniform at Bonneygrove Primary School is central to building a sense of community among students, staff and parents as well as the local community. We find that students are proud to represent our school in public.
When children wear our school uniform, they gain a sense of pride and improved behaviour and concentration. This makes teachers’ jobs much easier and removes the sort of problems many will be familiar with on non-uniform days.
Wearing a uniform sets a boundary by placing a pupil in a ‘working environment’ mindset and helps them separate their home and school life. School uniform places children on a level playing field, reducing the pressure to wear the latest fashionable brands.
School uniform plays a key role in promoting pride, self-confidence, and a feeling of belonging within the pupils. These factors contribute to students’ wellbeing, removing the additional pressures of deciding what to wear and added stress of meeting the expectations of their peers. Uniform removes the points of difference between students, thus unifying the student body and providing a greater focus on academic work.
