Uniform

We want children to be proud of Darley Dene and to take a pride in their appearance whilst wearing our school uniform. Following our change of school logo we have created new uniform expectations. We hope this will encourage a greater sense of belonging amongst the children as well as embed our new identity in the wider community as we enter a new, positive and exciting chapter for Darley Dene.

We ask parents and carers to support us in this policy by ensuring that children come to school correctly dressed.
