Uniform

We encourage all pupils to wear school uniform. This helps to instil a sense of pride and team spirit within our school. Sweat shirt orders are processed in the spring term. We can provide ‘nearly new/recycled’ sweatshirts for parents who would wish to make use of these.

School uniform consists of – school sweatshirt with school logo, white polo shirt, dark school skirt or trousers, dark school shoes (children should not wear high heeled shoes as these cause safety concerns). We appreciate your cooperation in support of this. Please consider the changeable nature of weather conditions and provide your child with appropriate outerwear and footwear to suit. PE Kit consists of – T shirt which tucks into shorts, standard length shorts, socks, gym shoes, all kept in a gym bag. With regard to safety, the wearing of jewellery (which we actively discourage) is not permitted during PE lessons. If your child (boy or girl) has pierced ears, please ensure they can remove and replace earrings by themselves. Any child wearing earrings that cannot do this will be asked to put surgical tape over them for PE lessons. (Parents should provide a named roll of surgical tape for this purpose.) Shoe string strap tops are also discouraged for safety reasons as they can catch on gym apparatus. The school requests that football team tops and designer garments are kept for home use as these can provoke conflict amongst the pupils. All clothing brought to school should be named or marked in some way, as it is difficult for children to distinguish their own clothing from that of others. For information about Nursery sweatshirts and clothing suggestions please see separate Nursery handbook.

Some families may be entitled to a school clothing grant. More information about this can be found at the back of this book.
