“When you look smart it helps to increase your sense of self worth and you are more likely to act smart too.
“Parents have also told us that they love the new look and changing our uniform is just one of the many ways that we are aiming to raise aspirations and invigorate the image of St Gregory’s for the future.”
Year 4 student Dion Earl, eight, said: “I didn’t think I’d like the new uniform at first but the blazer is really comfortable and I feel very smart and grown up.”
Janielle Perez, seven, added: “I really like the uniform especially the colour and all of the secret pockets and zips that I’ve found in my blazer.”
