SCHOOL UNIFORM

EXPECTATIONS

Wearing school uniform is important in maintaining high standards and a sense of pride and belonging to the school. There is a formal school uniform, to which children are expected to adhere and the co-operation of parents/carers in maintaining the standard of dress is expected. Items not available in school can be purchased at any chain/department store, providing they meet the school’s requirements.

We reserve the right to forbid items of clothing, accessories and footwear that are not on the School Uniform list, or are unacceptably dangerous in school or against the interests of the children at large.

Details of the uniform are as follows, please make sure all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name – including shoes.

EVERYDAY WEAR

*Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with school crest
*Royal blue fleece with school crest
*Royal blue polo shirt
Grey or black trousers
Grey pinafore/skirt or blue and white cotton dress (dresses are usually worn from the end of April to the beginning of September).
Black shoes. Buckled sandals can be worn in warmer weather and plain black boots may be worn in colder weather.
Socks or tights should be plain black, blue, grey or white

 

Hair
We ask that haircuts are not extreme (e.g. shaved patterns into hair). For health and safety reasons and to reduce the spread of head lice, all pupils (boys and girls) with hair of shoulder length (or longer) should wear it tied back at all times. Hairbands and hairclips should be plain and of a reasonable size.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

*Blue T-shirt
*Blue shorts
Tracksuit or jogging trousers for colder weather
Socks
Plimsolls for indoor PE/trainers for outside games in Key Stage 2
Swimming costume
Towel
*Swimming hat
Football boots/shin-pads will only be needed for after school clubs and team activities.

*These items can only be purchased from the school.

OTHER ITEMS

The school encourages the use of the following optional items:
*Book bag
*Plimsoll bag
Rucksacks (these should be of a reasonable size to fit on the child’s cloakroom peg)

JEWELLERY

All forms of jewellery present a risk to the child’s health and safety at school and is therefore not encouraged. Also, jewellery lost, damaged or broken at school causes upset and problems. As children move into Key Stage 2 parents may purchase a watch for their child which may be worn to school if it is practical and is the pupil’s responsibility. Teachers will look after a watch during Physical Education lessons and after school clubs. Children may wear their 100% attendance wristband and one other wristband if it links to an appropriate charity or event.

It is necessary to remind parents that body piercing, except pierced ears, is not considered appropriate and is strongly discouraged. Where ears are pierced, studs may be worn to school and no other form of earrings. Studs must be covered with surgical tape for Physical Education activities, including swimming.

The wearing of make-up, nail varnish and ‘temporary’ tattoos is not considered acceptable and your child will be asked to remove these in school using make-up remover where appropriate.
