Oaklands School, Montgomery Way, Winsford, Cheshire, CW7 1NU
SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
At Oaklands School, all pupils are expected to wear the school uniform. We believe that a school uniform is important because it:
promotes a sense of belonging to our school
looks smart and wears well
encourages a sense of equality and cohesion
fosters a feeling of pride in our school
protects pupils from social pressures to dress in a particular way
All pupils are encouraged to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.
Items of uniform with the school logo are available to buy from school. An up-to-date price list is obtainable from the school office or can be found on the school website www.oaklandsschool.org
School Governors demonstrate transparency and best value for money when appointing suppliers.
