Uniform is compulsory for all pupils at DSLV.
Through our uniform we hope to achieve:
- value for money
- comfort and smartness
- some choice within clear guidelines
- We also hope to ensure that students are not fashion victims at school thus reducing pressure on pupils to compete and parents to buy expensive items.
Details of the required uniform are listed below. Should you be unsure about any items of uniform please do not hesitate to contact the academy.
