Thamesmead School recognises the value of having a uniform for the following reasons:
Safety – If all students wear a clearly recognisable uniform it is easy to identify strangers. On the way to and from school it also affords a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people who will look out for each other.
Preparations for the future – Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform and even if there is not a uniform there is often a dress code. Uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard. It also helps them know the difference between formal and informal dress.
Value for money – Good quality uniform is an economic way of dressing young people for school.
Relieves students from fashion ‘stress’ – School uniform eliminates the stress placed on students to purchase and wear expensive, fashionable and designer items.
A sense of pride – We all feel proud of our young people when they are well dressed in the uniform. Uniform and team kits also help students to demonstrate pride in Thamesmead School.
Helps raise aspirations – The smarter you feel the more you believe you can achieve. Wearing a uniform signals that you are ready to work.
