Uniform

There is a school uniform which is worn throughout the school. All children at Knighton Mead are expected to wear the school uniform. School uniform, including book bags, are on sale from the school office.

A school uniform is important at school because:

  • It gives the children a sense of belonging and being part of the school
  • The risk of bullying regarding a pupils clothing is significantly reduced
  • When attending school outings, children can easily be identified as belonging to Knighton Mead
  • It prepares children for secondary school
  • Book bags support children’s reading progress and links with home/school
