School Uniform and Dress Code

All students are part of the Ranford Primary team – working and playing together and from time to time, representing the school. Part of this is the identification of students as belonging to Ranford Primary and wearing the school uniform with pride.

At Ranford Primary there is an established a dress code for all students Kindergarten to Year 6. This has been developed in partnership with parents and designed to cater for all ages. A school dress code:

  • fosters and enhances the public image of the school
  • assists in building school and team spirit
  • ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities
  • encourages equity by removing competitive “fashion” items among students; and
  • prepares students for school and work, as dress and safety codes are a requirement.

Guidelines

  • The uniforms include a range of items. These are available from Uniform Concepts in Willetton

  2. If the student is still out of uniform the class teacher will again remind them of the school dress code requirements and communicate this to parents.
  3. If the student is still out of uniform a copy of the dress code requirements and uniform information will be sent home to the family.
  4. Problems regarding non-compliance, or requests for exemptions from the dress code will be referred to the principal.
  5. Students representing the school in various sporting and team events will be required to wear a school uniform.
