School Uniform Policy
We feel that by wearing our school’s uniform pupils not only look smart but gain a sense of identity and pride in our school.
The school uniform comprises:
- Navy sweatshirt or cardigan (sweatshirts with the school logo are available online from our supplier)
- Red polo shirt
- Grey trousers, skirt or pinafore dress
- Blue or red checked summer dresses
All uniform can be purchased at www.school-shop.co.uk and will be delivered free of charge to your home address.
Footwear should be comfortable, sensible and low-heeled, as children will be wearing this footwear for playtimes as well as in class.
New items of school dress are occasionally added to the stock we can supply (on a not-for-profit basis), and the intention is to provide good quality clothing at reasonable prices, as well as presenting a visual message about the school’s identity.
We like to see the children tidily and comfortably dressed, with the emphasis being on the practical items of clothing of the uniform. Wearing school uniform also means there is no air of competition in clothing for school. We ask that all items of clothing are labelled clearly with the child’s name.
School bag – children are supplied with a bag, with the school’s logo, for the purpose of carrying reading books and homework, etc. to and from school.
We ask that mobile phones, watches with alarms and inbuilt games are left at home. However, children may wear a watch on the understanding that it must not be a distraction to their learning; and that the school will not accept any responsibility for loss or damage.
Make-up, in any form, is not appropriate for school wear. (This includes coloured lip-salves). Jewellery, other than small stud earrings, is not permitted. The school cannot accept responsibility for lost or damaged studs.
For Physical Education pupils require a PE kit comprising:
- White T shirt or polo shirt
- Navy shorts
- Navy jogging bottoms for colder weather
- Navy sweatshirt/ hooded top
- Trainers and plimsolls
All uniform is available online from http://www.school-shop.co.uk
Quite often children will work barefoot in the hall, e.g. during gymnastics lessons, as this helps to develop an appreciation of form and style.
We ask that a child’s PE kit is at school every day. (We expect older children to become entirely responsible for remembering to bring their kit to school.) Stud earrings must be removed or taped over for PE.
