Uniform (Dress Code)

Uniformity in school dress enhances the tone of the school and fosters amongst the scholars a feeling of “belonging together” as well as a sense of loyalty and pride.  Please help us to uphold the good image of Bryneven by ensuring that your child wears the full and correct uniform at all times and especially in public places such as shopping centres and on the way to and from school.
