The King Edward VI School Morpeth Uniform
The King Edward VI School Uniform Policy 2022
We believe uniform can play a key role in:
- promoting the ethos of a school
- providing a sense of belonging and identity
- setting an appropriate tone for education
By creating a common identity amongst all students, regardless of background, a school uniform can act as a social leveller. It can reduce bullying and peer pressure to wear the latest fashions or other expensive clothes. We must insist that all students follow the correct uniform to ensure fairness to all.
The following uniform policy has been devised with due consideration of the statutory guidance from the Department for Education which can be found here.
Most items of uniform can be purchased from a range of supermarkets and department stores.
However the blazer will need to be purchased from Emblematic, either online at www.emblematic.co.uk or in their Morpeth shop at Unit 2 The Old Stables, Grey's Yard, Morpeth, NE61 1QD. Please note the store is open Wednesday to Saturday.
