At Rastrick High School, we aim to achieve standards of excellence in all areas of school life including appearance.
Our Rationale for Uniform
Because all of our 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.
Putting on uniform is a signal you are going to work hard and learn.
Students have told us that if they look smart they will have more self-belief and achieve more.
Uniform and team kits help our students to demonstrate pride in their school.
Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform or there is often a dress code. Uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard and know the difference between formal and informal dress.
Uniform eliminates the stress placed on students to purchase and wear expensive, fashionable items.
Uniform is a relatively inexpensive way of dressing young people for school
