School Uniform

The aim of The Coppice Spring School is to re-integrate pupils back into mainstream school. If pupils stop wearing uniforms in their time at the school, it will make their return to mainstream school all the more harder.make their return to mainstream school all the more difficult.

We expect pupils to wear the following simple uniform:

  • Dark Trousers or Skirt
  • School T-Shirt
  • School Sweatshirt
  • Black Footwear

Please note: if you would like to wear your own school uniform you may do so.

The wearing of items of jewellery should also be kept to a minimum for safety reasons; The wearing of large earrings, nose rings and large hand rings will not be allowed. Pupils not wearing school uniform will be required to change into uniform supplied by the school.
