School Uniform

Keithcot Farm School Uniform Policy

The Keithcot Farm School Governing Council strongly supports the wearing of a clearly identifiable school uniform and all students are expected to wear the Uniform.

We believe that the wearing of our school uniform:

  • promotes pride in our school
  • enhances our public image
  • encourages appropriate clothing for activities
  • helps to reduce peer pressure
  • provides additional safety in the school yard.

School uniform items are available from the uniform shop which is open on Monday morning from 8:15am – 9:15am.

Orders can be made through the QKR app, or order form available from the office.

  • Religious  /cultural
  • Medical
  • New / itinerant students
  • Financial hardship
