Uniform Consequences

It is in the interest of all stakeholders to ensure that our pupils have conformity with uniform and a sense of pride when wearing the Marston Vale Middle School uniform.  We urge you to consider this when buying uniform for your child. Whilst the latest fashions may be of desire to a child, they have no place in the school.
