Dress Code

Tom Price Primary School strongly encourages our students to wear appropriate school dress at all times. The wearing of the school uniform serves a number of purposes.

  • School morale and tone can be lifted through the wearing of a uniform.
  • Children are dressed for the occasion.
  • School dress enhances the child’s sense of belonging to their school group. It also encourages a sense of pride in their individual appearance and as a member of the school community.
  • School uniform is a more economically viable means of providing appropriate dress standards.
  • Wearing school uniform removes the competition to wear designer and other fad clothing.
  • School uniform does not impose upon each child’s individuality but reflects an attitude of respect and conformity to community standards and
  • For children on excursions school dress can be an important safety factor for supervision.

Students should wear school uniform to school. Leisure or weekend wear (singlets, loud T-shirts etc) is not appropriate and parents will be notified. Rude and offensive articles of clothing are NOT permitted at school.

For safety reasons, safe footwear is to be worn at all times. Thongs, for example, are not considered to be safe footwear. Inappropriate items, such as jewellery, large earrings etc, that can present a safety hazard are also not allowed. Please ensure that all items belonging to a child are identified with the child’s name to avoid them becoming lost. For special occasions (eg excursions, sports carnivals etc.) children must be dressed appropriately.
