Can I please ask parents to ensure that they use the advised school uniform suppliers for all compulsory uniform items; school trousers, shirts, shoes and other items of uniform can be bought from any supplier provided they meet the school uniform colours and specifications.
At Waseley Hills we believe that school uniform helps to instil a sense of belonging to the school. We expect all parents to support our view that school uniform helps to create an orderly atmosphere conducive to work and a positive image in the community.
