Denefield School has its own distinctive uniform. There are good reasons for this. The most important is that our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and uniform helps us create a sense of our school as a community. Moreover, smart appearance is very important for student’s self esteem and this will inevitably have an impact on their behaviour and the quality of their learning. Some of our students, understandably, like to show they can keep up with the latest trends in teenage fashions. This puts other students, and their parents who have limited resources, under unnecessary pressure. A school uniform removes these distractions and allows students to concentrate on their learning. We ask parents to resist reacting to each change of fashion where school uniform and hairstyles are concerned. Often what is fashionable is unsuitable for wearing at school. We have kept our uniform as simple as we can with the maximum number of standard items easily obtainable at reasonable prices from many retail and mail order outlets. School branded items are obtainable from our uniform suppliers, Price & Buckland.
All items of clothing and equipment should be clearly named.
Designer logos and fashion items are not acceptable.
Shoes should be plain black with minimal decoration, firm-soled, water resistant and polishable.
Students also need a rucksack that is big enough to take text books, exercise books and folders up to A4 size.
