New School Uniform Update
There appears to be some confusion regarding the new school uniform that is due to come into effect from September 2014.
Our new school uniform will now consist of
We have also added optional items - a rucksack that is favoured by older pupils, and a school coat with is waterproof on the outside and fleecy inside.
As has been made clear throughout the process, uniform will be changed over time. Old style school uniform may be worn in all years (including reception) until it wears out, but we would ask that when purchasing replacements, you buy the new style pieces. For all parents who need to purchase uniform, the new school uniform will be available to purchase for September 2014. You can see samples in school reception.
School uniform in the new colour and logo will be available to purchase from Amin’s School Supply shop on Bank Street in Rawtenstall and on line through Tesco’s uniform service. Pale blue polo shirts and sweat shirts / cardigans without badges can also be purchased at Amin’s School Supply and Tesco uniform service and a wide variety of shops selling plain school uniforms.
Consistent with the whole of the re-branding process, we listened to what parents had to say and then asked you to vote on their suggestions. Voting papers were opened and counted at the re-branding meeting. School uniform was changed in line with the wishes of the majority.
If you have any queries or wish to discuss school uniform further, someone from the re-branding group will be in the school library on Tuesday 10 June from 3pm and on Monday 16 June from 8.30am.
