The Department of Education and Communities School Uniform Policy requires schools to review and document school uniform or dress code requirements in consultation with their communities and to develop strategies for the wearing of school uniforms. School uniforms should reflect school community standards and be consistent with occupational health and safety, antidiscrimination and equal opportunity legislation.

 

BENEFITS OF SCHOOL UNIFORM 

The wearing of school uniforms by students will assist school communities in:

• Developing students’ sense of belonging to the school community

• Providing an opportunity to build school spirit

• Enhancing the health and safety of students when involved in school activities

• Promoting a sense of inclusiveness, non-discrimination and equal opportunity

• Reinforcing the perception of the school as an ordered and safe environment

• Increasing the personal safety of students and staff by allowing easier recognition of visitors and

potential intruders in the school

• Promoting positive community perceptions of public education

• Making school clothing more affordable for families by eliminating the risk of peer pressure to

wear transiently fashionable and expensive clothes.
