After careful consideration, in light of the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to temporarily amend Greswold’s uniform policy in order to better suit the needs of the exceptional circumstances that we presently find ourselves in.
With the winter weather drawing in, one of our fundamental priorities at Greswold is safeguarding the comfort, health and wellbeing of all of our pupils, which includes ensuring that all pupils feel that they are appropriately dressed to suit the colder climate as they continue to spend more time outdoors.
Consequently, the decision has been made that when pupils return after half term, the following winter uniform will apply to all Greswold pupils, regardless of gender:
Please note that on PE days, it will still be the requirement to send children in outdoor PE kit. Please consult our website for further guidance on this.
As ever, Greswold will still maintain its high expectations of presentation to link with our value of belonging; therefore, I do ask for your support in ensuring that pupils attend school looking smart and demonstrating pride in their uniform.
A full parent consultation on uniform will still be carried out in 2021, when the uniform policy is due for a scheduled review, where feedback about our policy will be welcomed.
