School Uniform

Uniform helps all our children feel part of Cowling School and plays a valuable role in setting the appropriate tone for school.  It helps children to feel a sense of ‘belonging’ and pride to be a part of our school community.  The wearing of a uniform ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome and protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; the children come to school prepared and with the right attitude for work.
