Uniform

Most parents, governors, staff and friends of the school agree that all students attending Eskdale should wear a uniform. 

ORDER FORM FOR UNIFORM - LAUGHING WHALE SCHOOLS

We are fortunate in this school that most parents readily co-operate with this. There is little doubt that the uniform saves a daily decision about what to wear and the expense and pressure that comes from constantly changing fashion. Equally important is the fact that the school uniform is associated with work, whereas other clothes tend to be ―casual and associated with leisure.

The personal appearance of all students must be sensible, clean and acceptable to staff. This may have particular reference to hair styles. Hair dyes and sprays are not allowed. Jewellery, hair braids and earrings are encouraged not be worn by either boys or girls as these items are hazardous to others and they are difficult to take care of in a large institution. A bag for carrying books, equipment and PE Kit is essential. Parents are asked to mark clothing.
