The governing body of The Maelor School seek to ensure that this policy allows all to dress appropriately and safely for school, that the uniform is cost effective, and that the pupils are smart and portray a positive image of the school. It isn’t possible to legislate for all changes in products / fashions available, and as such, they have given the leadership team of the school the right to intervene where pupils do not portray this smart, positive image.
Equality and Diversity
Our uniform is non-gender specific. The school is respectful of all faiths and where specific faiths require alterations to the uniform and appearance code, we will do our best to accommodate those needs. Students with a disability, who may need amendments to the uniform, will be accommodated. Parents are advised to contact the Headteacher.
Items are available from our uniform supplier – Sarah’s Embroidery, Penley. You can purchase from the shop on Penley Industrial Estate or you can order by phone, by post or via the internet.
