Uniform

Knox Park Primary School dress code, as outlined in the Uniform Policy, aims to promote a sense of school identity and pride that is associated with our student uniform. Our dress code ensures that our children’s appearance reflects the expectations of our school community and enhances the school profile and identity within the wider community.

The student dress code does not discriminate on the basis of gender, ethnic group, nationality, religious beliefs, colour or disability. It ensures that our children are appropriately and safely dressed for a range of activities, including Physical Education. A choice of clothing within the uniform range is provided and ensures that the range, quality and choice of garments, their cost and availability take into account the capacity of parents/carers to provide them. This includes providing second-hand options in the school’s Uniform Shop where possible.

*Knox Park Primary School is in a logo changed over period (2016 – 2019) and consequently both logos on school uniform are acceptable. By the start of 2020 all uniform must feature the new logo.

The Uniform Shop is open every Wednesday morning from 9.00 to 9.30am for sizing and sale of second hand uniform.

School Uniform is now sold online from RH Sports or you can visit the retail store at Unit 12/100 New Street Ringwood
