Thank you for supporting us with providing your child with the correct uniform. We are proud of how smart the children look. A weekly ‘Smartest Class Award’ is presented in every Monday assembly. At Gomer Junior School we have a school uniform because we recognise that a consistent uniform approach increases children’s identity and self-esteem, impacting positively on behaviour. It also puts the children in the right frame of mind for working. Additionally, it ensures that pupils are not differentiated one from another because of the clothes they wear to school. The Governing Body have given careful consideration to the uniform list ensuring that it is readily available and reasonably priced.
PLEASE mark your child’s name in ALL clothing and personal belongings to help us return them if they are mislaid.
Skoolkit are our uniform supplier. They have a shop in Fareham or you can order their products on-line.
All of the kit outlined above, with the exception of the logoed jumper, can be purchased from a range of suppliers for very competitive prices.
