- Equality Statement
Uniform standards are high at Wrotham School and our uniform code is inclusive, de-gendered and smart. We make it very clear in all communications that we will not waste time on conversations regarding uniform outside of these clear guidelines and expectations. Parents are expected to ensure that students arrive at school in correct uniform and that on the rare occasion where for medical reasons uniform can not be adhered to, then a note is provided clearly explains any temporary change from this code.
Parents choose our school because of its high standards so we make no excuses in enforcing this code to uphold the values we share with our parents and students in this area.
Uniform ensures equality of students as appropriate in a school learning environment and therefore is not negotiable.
