School Uniform Questionnaire:
Last night (Tuesday 16 June), the Norfolk Board of Trustees met at the monthly meeting and discussed the uniform questionnaire. Results from the questionnaire were as follows:
Question: Should the Norfolk School Board of Trustees introduce a compulsory full school uniform which will be phased in over a two year period, what options would you support?
100% of parents/caregivers answered this questionnaire
100% of Year 5-8 learners completed this questionnaire
1st June change over parents/learners did not complete this questionnaire.
Yes I support a school uniform= 49.4%
No I do not support a school uniform= 50.6%
The Norfolk School Board of Trustees has decided not to introduce a school uniform. This question will be redressed in five years (2020). The Board based their decision on the large amount of parent feedback received and felt there was insufficient impetus to make a change as significant as this. The Board was also reluctant to introduce any distractions given the high level of engagement and learning currently being achieved within the school.
On behalf of the Board, I would like to acknowledge parent and student feedback, which was brilliant. I would also like to thank Paula Terrill’s efforts in gathering feedback from all of our parents, which is highly valued by the Board.
