Pride in our school
At Kimpton, Thruxton and Fyfield Church of England Primary School our children are proud to be members of our school and wear our uniform. The uniform has been designed to be practical for a primary school whilst reflecting the high standards expected at school – it is to be worn with pride at all times.
We feel that it is important that children learn to dress smartly and appropriately. They grow up at Kimpton understanding that most secondary schools and later in life, businesses, require smart, professional dress.
We look to parents to work with the school to ensure that children come to school always maintaining a high standard of dress and with at least a minimum of the correct colours in their clothing.
We value learning so highly that we do not send children home to change. However, we hope that we do not have to deal with uniform transgressions.
Judgements about acceptability of uniform and appearance can only be made by Kimpton staff and ultimately the Headteacher.
It is our policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in an event organised by the School.
