School Uniform – Why is it important?
School uniform for pupils at Whitgreave Junior School is an important aspect of school life.
Our pupils are our greatest ambassadors and they, in turn, are very proud to be associated with Whitgreave Junior School and enjoy the sense of school identity, unity and pride that wearing their school uniform brings.
From a parent perspective, school uniform is cost effective, appropriate school wear is clearly identified and the pressure from children in deciding what to wear for school is reduced.
In addition, research has identified that school uniform reduces peer pressure, encourages pupil discipline, improves student attendance and children are less distracted in lessons as they are better able to concentrate.
Details of our uniform are below and we ask that you please support Whitgreave Junior School in our expectation that all pupils will wear full school uniform.
