The Governors of St Leonard’s agree with the Department for Education and Skills in believing that ‘uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of the school and setting an appropriate tone. Uniform can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils’. Above all, we believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.
All pupils attending St Leonard’s are expected to wear the school uniform correctly and at all times in the school. This uniform has the full approval of the School Governors who are responsible for establishing the policy for school uniform. The Head Teacher must ensure pupils comply with the uniform policy agreed.
The Governing Body believes that uniform should be:
2.1 Boys Years 7-11
* please note that as from September 2015 the blazer badge has reduced in size from 10cm to 8cm diameter. This is to allow suppliers to offer a blazer with embroidered badge and as a result it is not necessary to buy a badge in addition to the blazer. For parents who wish to purchase a non-embroidered blazer 8cm badges are available for purchase from school.
2.2 Girls Year 7-11
* please note that as from September 2015 the blazer badge has reduced in size from 10cm to 8cm diameter.

2.3 All pupils
2.4 Jewellery, Make-Up and Hair

Uniform is available from many retail outlets. Whilst the school does not require parents to purchase all uniform from a particular supplier, the School has in 2014 entered into partnership with Price & Buckland for the exclusive supply of PE Uniform. Price & Buckland also hold an approved stock of Main School Uniform. All items for sale from Price & Buckland via the school website have been approved as acceptable school uniform. Feedback from parental consultations has informed us that certain aspects of the school uniform most notably appropriate navy blue school skirts and girls’ navy blue trousers have been difficult to source. Price and Buckland offer all items of uniform at a reasonable price. Other stockists include Uniform, 8 Derwent Street, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear SR1 3NT and Parkins, 71 North Rd, Durham, County Durham DH1 4SQ. Please note that items from Price & Buckland have been approved whereas items from other stockists may vary.
Pupils who fail to wear uniform correctly will be dealt with according to the School’s Behaviour Policy.
Parents who experience difficulty in providing the school uniform are asked to contact the school in confidence to discuss the problem.
The Head Teacher’s decision on suitable items will be final.
