Uniform

At Riverley Primary School we pride ourselves in looking smart at all times by wearing a colourful, smart and comfortable uniform which follows the school’s uniform policy. We feel that it is a positive reinforcement outside the school that clearly represents how supportive pupils and parents are towards the school.

We believe that the wearing of uniform can reduce peer pressure and promotes a sense of community within the school.

We hope that all children will take a sense of pride in their appearance.

All children wear a uniform that is simple and available at most large stores. School sweatshirts, fleeces, polo shirts, hats, PE shorts and bags are available for purchase on-line.
