Uniform

We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable and we expect pupils to wear it with pride when at school, on journeys between home and school, and especially when representing the school on visits and fixtures.  Pupils who do not meet our expectations about uniform will usually receive a sanction.

Please note that school-branded items should be purchased from our school suppliers, Essential Schoolwear (daily wear), SMI Schoolwear (PE kit) and Total Clothing (GCSE Dance/Drama uniform and daily wear - from October 2020). We will run second-hand uniform events when possible. Families who find it difficult to afford school uniform at any time should contact Mrs Katie Reyolds: kreynolds@cambournevc.org, in complete confidence, so that a way forward can be found.
