We have chosen a smart, economical and practical uniform. We expect all children to support these simple requests and conform to our uniform expectations. Educational research has proved conclusively that there is an increased sense of belonging, raised academic success and improved behaviour when all pupils wear the agreed uniform. We ask all families for their full support with the school uniform policy.
Please avoid inappropriate choices such as:
We feel that pupils are smartest when wearing sensible black shoes. Black trainers are not acceptable.
NAMING OF CLOTHES
It is essential that all school clothes and possessions are clearly named. This will not prevent losses occurring, but will enable the many articles brought to lost property to be returned to their owners.
It has become increasingly fashionable for children to wear jewellery. This can be dangerous in school. NO rings, necklaces or bracelets are to be worn. Earrings, if worn, are limited to PLAIN STUDS (no more than one per ear lobe). These must be removed for P.E. and swimming. Nail varnish is not allowed. The only other permitted jewellery is a medical bracelet/necklace or a watch. However, the school accepts no responsibility for any jewellery lost in school.
Hair that is shoulder length or longer is to be tied back at all times for all pupils. Inappropriate fashion statements, for example – haircuts including tramlines, steps, closely shaved heads and patterns cut into the hair, gelled spiky styles, hair colouring, hair gel, and extra jewellery, are considered to be non-school uniform and as such are not permitted.
We also ask that no large hair bows (including ‘Jo-Jo Bows’) are worn to school. Hair bands and small bows are permitted but must be plain in colour with no added accessory.
It is only with the full support of all our parents that we can maintain high standards
P.E is an essential part of your child’s development and it is important that you ensure that they have appropriate kit for the allocated days.
For outside games pupils need football boots, shin pads and trainers in all year groups and they will be barefoot for indoor P.E. Black plimsolls may be worn for dance and gym.
A navy blue tracksuit may be worn in cold weather. Leggings may be worn in cold weather but must be plain in colour, either black, blue or grey. (For hygiene reasons, your child must not wear their school jumper for games.)
Swimming hats can be purchased from the school office
