School Uniform

The wearing of school uniform is expected as it helps children to identify more closely with the ‘school family’ and generally assists in promoting the public image of the school.  Smart appearance is encouraged including acceptable haircuts and accessories.  Uniform will also be worn on occasions when children are representing the school, including during off-site visits.

 

Parents and carers are expected to co-operate fully by providing the uniform and ensuring children wear it correctly at all times.  Some items are only obtainable from the school’s supplier, My Clothing.

 

Please ensure that all articles of clothing and other items brought into school are marked clearly with your child’s name.

My Clothing makes a 5% cash donation to our school. Further information about ordering uniform can be obtained from the school office.

Parents should provide a change of clothing for all PE lessons. Staff will tell the children which days they have their PE sessions but it is useful if PE kits are brought to school on Monday and taken home on a Friday for washing. Tracksuits or jogging suits may also be worn for outdoor games sessions.

Please ensure all articles of clothing, particularly jumpers, cardigans and school coats, are clearly labelled with your child’s name. This is the only way we can ensure lost items of clothing are returned. Please also encourage your child to look after their own belongings. Your support with this will be very much appreciated. Jewellery is not allowed in school. The only exception to this is a watch but this must be removed for PE.

Children will be asked to remove any jewellery worn during the school day. It is strongly recommended that mobile phones and other communication devices are left at home. However, if brought into school, these should be switched off and handed to the class teacher at the beginning of the day. The school does not accept responsibility for loss, theft or damage to any personal items of property, clothing or jewellery.

If parents wish to have their child’s ears pierced, it is suggested that this is done at the beginning of the Summer Holidays, so that by the time the Autumn terms starts, studs may be removed. Earrings in particular represent a considerable accident risk both in physical education and play and children should not wear them in school. For the child’s own health and safety, they may not be able to participate in the full range of activities offered within a PE, playtime or school session if they are wearing earrings and they will be asked to remove them if worn during the school day. If the child is unable to remove their earrings, alternative activities may need to be arranged for the child and parents will be contacted to ensure that earrings are not worn in future. School staff cannot accept responsibility for the removal of earrings. Earrings must also be removed for swimming lessons according to swimming pool policy.
