School uniform

The Governing Body of Ganton School has decided that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos and is based on the following principles:

  • promotes a sense of pride amongst the children in the school;
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging;
  • is practical and smart;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be);
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents;
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind;
  • impacts positively on attitudes to learning
