Wearing correct school uniform is an essential part of being a student at IES Breckland. We have high expectations of our students and expect them to dress smartly. It is IES Breckland School policy that all students wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We ask that all parents support the school uniform policy.
Questions should be raised with us before buying item(s) which may not conform to our expectations.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
- Promotes a sense of pride in the school
- Is practical, smart and affordable
- Identifies students of the school and engenders a sense of community and belonging
- Promotes equality amongst the students in terms of appearance
Role of Parents and Carers
We ask that all parents and carers support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have the duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents and carers is to ensure their child is wearing the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.
Ordering School Uniform
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is currently not possible to try on uniform for size. We have a sizing guide to help you select the sizes to order.
Please follow this link to place an order for those uniform items that must be purchased from school. If your child is joining us in Year 7 for the first time in September, please select ‘September intake’ as the year group.
Once we have received your order, we will create your ParentPay account and send you instructions how to set it up. Then you will be able to pay for your order using ParentPay. Once the order is paid for we will get your order ready for collection and contact you to arrange a time for collection.
