School Uniform

At KLB School we are continually focusing on developing the aspirations of our pupils and one of these skills is to become a self-manager and present themselves in a smart way in preparation for later life opportunities.

We firmly believe that it is an essential part of the ethos and culture of KLB School that all pupils manage the way in which they present themselves and comply with the school uniform requirements. We are very proud of our community and want all our young people to show that they are too, by wearing our uniform with pride.

Uniform Policy

Maintaining a high standard of uniform is important for a school. It conveys confidence, quality and supports a purposeful learning environment.   School uniform is not designed to be fashionable and cannot keep in step with the rapid changes in fashion each year. The aim is that students look neat and tidy and that all extremes are avoided.
