  • Most of the items can be purchased from our suppliers website: https://www.mapac.com/education/parents/uniform/tyndalecommunityschool

  • Tyndale Community School also sells cheaper second hand uniform

  • If a child does not wear the correct uniform, a written reminder of our expectations will be communicated to the parents/carers. If this continues to be the case, there will be a phone call reminder from the class teacher. After these two steps are exhausted, a meeting will be arranged with a senior leader.

  • If a child arrives at school wearing inappropriate clothing which causes concern (e.g. unsuitable for the weather, too revealing, offensive or unsuitable slogans etc.) then the school will provide uniform for the child to wear for the day

  • PE kit may be worn into school on the allocated day of their PE lesson

  • Parents are asked to clearly label every item of school clothing with their child’s name

  • Parents and pupils are responsible for maintaining and remembering school uniform. The school is not held liable for any missing uniform.
