School Uniform

Alton_Park_Junior_School_Essex_0429School Uniform Policy Statement

The wearing of Alton Park uniform is expected as an integral part of school life, helping to foster a sense of community spirit. It is expected that full school uniform will be worn whilst travelling to and from Alton Park as well as during the normal school hours.

We believe good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and identify pupils to local residents and future employers as members of an efficient organisation. The co-operation of all parents and carers is requested to ensure that pupils are in correct uniform at all times.

Please Note
