School uniform

As the centre is a short term programme, we are aware that parents and carers will not want to purchase a separate uniform to wear while attending the Polar Re Start Centre. However, in order to be in keeping with the learning to learn programme, we believe that uniform is an essential part of conformity and encourages a sense of belonging. With this in mind we would ask parents to purchase school trousers or school skirts that can also be worn when the young person transitions to their new school. In most cases these will be dark grey or black, The young person should also be encouraged to wear a white polo shirt and school shoes not bright coloured trainers .
