Uniform Policy

The Department for Education strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.

At Rhyddings we have clear uniform expectations. All pupils are expected to adhere to the wearing of full uniform at all times.
The uniform guidelines are linked to the Rhyddings basic expectations. If an item of clothing or footwear is not listed, it is not school uniform.
