Uniform at Brooklands


At Brooklands we have deliberately chosen not have a school uniform.  Instead, we prefer to allow children and their parents/carers a choice in what they wear to school, encouraging individuality, personal taste and style.  We simply expect children to be dressed sensibly and practically, ready to enjoy a busy day at school.

We are aware that children can get competitive about clothes and it can become the basis of unpleasant behaviour,  but these are not issues we are seeing at Brooklands and not ones that are raised with us by parents.

We don’t believe that our children need a uniform to instill respect, discipline and a sense of belonging.  Our culture and ethos ensure that Brooklands children have all of these.

In 2012 we put a vote out to the parent body via the Parent Council and the majority of parents were in favour of keeping with the schools no uniform policy.
