Uniform

To promote the Highfurlong family ethos in school we are asking all pupils, parents and carers to support our school uniform policy.

School uniform: 

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school 
  • Establishes a sense of community and belonging towards the school 
  • Is practical and smart 
  • Promotes equality (please see Equalities statement) 
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents
  •  Is designed with health and safety in mind 

School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. A uniform supports positive behaviour; ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils. Governors and parents support the wearing of uniform and recognise the contribution this makes towards the school ethos. Highfurlong School also recognises the need to support students to develop sensible habits of dress and prepare themselves for dress codes in later life. While parents overwhelmingly support our uniform policy, some do not actively enforce the wearing of uniform by their children and so we must enforce this at school. 

Highfurlong School follow the DfE statutory guidance ensuring uniforms are reasonable in price and present value for money.   Please read our parents guide below for more information.

Highfurlong School has a uniform. Any specific needs or amendments need to be requested in writing to the headteacher
