At Epping Views Primary School we wear a uniform to ensure that everyone feels a part of the EVPS team. The uniform was chosen by the parents and students and has a number of mix and match items to ensure it is suitable for all activities. The school stocks all items of uniform which can be purchased between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
