Cheney School


School Uniform 

At Cheney we have a school uniform because:

  • It develops a sense of professionalism and prepares students for the world of work.
  • Differences between pupils are reduced, which in turn reduces some of the causes of isolation and bullying.
  • The self-esteem of particular groups of pupils is improved.
  • Security is improved – it is easy to spot who does and who does not belong to the school community.
  • Pupils feel a stronger sense of belonging and commitment to the school.
  • It improves the image of the school in the local community.
  • It creates a sense of purpose within the school environment.
