School Uniform

Introduction

Eton Dorney School students are expected to wear the school uniform listed below. High standards of dress are always required, reinforcing the standards of appearance and behaviour that are needed to need and maintain high expectations. School uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance. Most importantly uniformity means that our pupils do not feel disadvantaged or feel worried about pressure, when it comes to their clothes. A study has shown that as well as this having a uniform also improves grades due to increased concentration and creating a more formal academic atmosphere. The uniform helps to reduce negative comparison between students from different socio-economic backgrounds. Eton Dorney School have made every effort to consider all our pupils including those with SEN and their sensory needs. As such we have two clothing options available for pupils with sensory needs what are available at School Day Direct Limited.

Trousers, shirts and blouses can be purchased from supermarket stores providing they meet the uniformity criteria.
