CLEEVE School Uniform and PE Uniform

As a school we expect all our students to be dressed appropriately and in the correct uniform, at all times.

The Senior Leadership Team, along with Tutors,  run weekly uniform checks to ensure students are wearing the correct uniform, as per our Uniform Policy below:
