It is important to us that we have a uniform to be proud of at OMS.
Wearing a uniform creates a group identity for our pupils, which in turn promotes a sense of pride, community and belonging. Any difference in pupils’ backgrounds and appearance that may otherwise become a distraction to themselves or others is avoided. Insistence on the correct uniform also assists us with the health and safety of pupils.
