What can Parents do?

  • Participate fully in the consultation in your child’s school to agree the list of approved items for its uniform/dress code.
  • Make sure you are aware of the benefits of wearing school uniform and discuss these with your child.
  • Stay committed to it – sometimes the road maybe rocky, but it is worth showing your commitment.
  • Keep in contact with the school and other parents; a united approach will reinforce the message to children and young people.
  • If you are contacted by the school to inform you that your child has not worn any or part of the approved uniform, discuss it with him/her; set out your expectations and revisit the benefits.
  • Praise your child for wearing the full school uniform. Tell your child how smart he/she looks.
