Uniform and Standards 

We appreciate the support that we receive from parents, carers and pupils to maintain the high standard of uniform at Blessed Robert Sutton. Our school uniform is functional for everyday use, promotes a community identity and helps keep pupils safe. School uniform also promotes equality, as the same standards apply for all pupils. If your child experiences difficulties with wearing the correct school uniform, please inform your child’s Form Tutor.
