Windsor Primary School’s dress code is about more than just how our students look. It’s about how our students behave and achieve and it’s an important part of their – and our school’s - identity.
Uniforms are available from our uniform shop near the office, open on Mondays 8:45am-9:15am and 3:15pm-3:45pm.
Having a coherent and consistent approach to our uniform is a key ingredient in creating a safe classroom environment focused on learning. Wearing the WPS school uniform identifies members of our school, promotes a sense of pride, loyalty, equity, mutual respect and a sense of belonging amongst the students. Through uniformity, there is still an opportunity for individuality to shine, but individuality comes from a student’s attitude, character, spirit and involvement.
We ask parents and carers to encourage students to wear the uniform proudly and well, and to instil in them that at all times they are ambassadors for Windsor Primary School.
The following guidelines are intended to ensure all members of our school are positive examples to each other and to the wider community.
It’s preferred items – where available - are purchased through the WPS uniform shop. Items not available through the uniform shop and purchased elsewhere must be of the same colour, style and fabric as those available from WPS uniform shop.
Most items of WPS uniform can be purchased at school.
Arrangements can be made to subsidise the supply of uniform via State Schools’ Relief Fund for families experiencing financial hardship. Parents seeking exemptions to the Dress Code due to religious beliefs, ethnic or cultural background, student disability or health conditions must apply in writing to the School Council for consideration.
For more information or to discuss our uniform policy, we encourage you to please come and speak to any council member, or contact WPS Principal directly.
