Changes to School Uniform Policy & Associated Guidelines

The NSW Department of Education has revised the School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines following an extensive review and consultation process, including with the NSW Parents and Citizens Association. The revised School Uniform Policy requirements include that:

  • all students have the opportunity to access the full range of school activities, including physical activities while wearing a school uniform
  • girls must have the option to wear shorts and pants
  • consideration is given to cost and how to assist families, including for schools to inform parents how they can access financial support to purchase school uniform items

The revised School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines can be found at the link: https://education.nsw.gov.au/policy-library/policies/school-uniform-policy

Where changes are required to a school’s uniform, there must be formal consultation with students, teachers and other staff, parents or carers, and the school community (including  the Parents and Citizens’ Association). Parents and carers should be given up to 3 years to comply with any changes.
