Pride and respect and a bit of old school value goes a long way.
Pupils are ambassadors for their community and each other while at school whether they like it or not and it is the schools responsibility, with the support of the parents and carers to keep the pupils on their toes as far as personal pride and appearance is concerned while they are under the schools provision and while they are wearing the school uniform.
