Nishkam School pupils are ambassadors of the School and all the Nishkam Schools in the trust.We believe our uniform fosters a sense of belonging, pride and identity. It sets high standards for pupils and makes an important contribution to a positive learning environment.We ask that parents support us with the uniform policy and ensure pupils come to school with smart, clean uniform on every day.
