Uniform

It is an expectation that all Orchard Children will wear the approved school uniform.

We are currently reviewing our school uniform to ensure it is appropriate and value for money. This coincides with new guidance from the Government to ensure the cost of school uniforms is reasonable and secures the best value for money.

As you know, we have recently introduced a new school logo and this uniform review, led by our Pupil Parliament, will also help us to decide the best way to incorporate our new logo into the uniform.

We are currently consulting with parents, pupils and school governors to gather their views on the quality and cost of our current uniform.

After taking all these views into account, we plan to publish our new school uniform policy in January 2023 which will come into effect in September 2023 for the new academic year.
