    • School Uniform - Our Approach

      At Swalcliffe Park School we value school uniform very highly.

      We believe that it helps to set a standard of student  presentation which contributes to both our successful learning environment and our ethos of personal development.

      In addition to this, the wearing of school uniform across the site helps to generate a sense of belonging amongst our student population.

      We are aware that some students present with sensory needs in relation to clothing. In these instances, our Referrals Team and Occupational Therapy Team will work closely with the student and their family to find a solution.
