Overview

It is the policy of EMS that uniform should be worn by all pupils throughout Years 7 to 11. The uniform supports the ethos of the school and helps instil discipline and pride in appearance in pupils. All PE kit and school uniform must have the pupil’s name in it – label or permanent marker. Pupils must have a bag suitable for bringing planners, books and other basic equipment (pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, all books for the day’s lessons, PE kit when required) to school each day. Hats and caps must not be worn inside the school building.

If you have any items of school uniform that your child no longer needs (e.g. blazers, ties, jumpers etc.) which are still in good condition we would be grateful if you would send them to school. We will then keep a supply of uniform in school which can be loaned to students in an emergency.
