At Fair Oak Junior School we believe that the wearing of a school uniform encourages pride in the school, helps children to feel they belong to the school community and makes them look ready to work. We expect children to wear school uniform and ask parents to support us in ensuring that children come to school dressed appropriately. Please ask if you have any questions concerning school uniform.
Please note that following consultation with parents and children, the school uniform will be changing from September 2019. Please click here to go to the uniform policy, as approved by governors, for September 2019.

- Grey or black school trousers
