We believe that the wearing of a school uniform enables children to identify with their school, gives a sense of belonging, is practical and smart, reinforces a positive work ethos and reduces expenditure for parents/carers.
All children wear the correct uniform to school
Children feel proud to belong to the school
Parents/carers share the expectations of the school
- It is expected that children wear the school uniform each day, with the appropriate footwear.
- The school prospectus provides parents/carers with full details and prices of the uniform to be worn (see below).
- Uniforms can be purchased here
- If a child does not wear the correct uniform, a verbal or written reminder of our expectations will be communicated to the parents/carers.
- If a child arrives at school wearing inappropriate clothing which causes concern (e.g. unsuitable for the weather, too revealing, offensive/unsuitable slogans etc) then the school will provide uniform for the child to wear for the day.
- PE kit should be kept in school all week and taken home at weekends for washing.
- If a child does not have their PE kit in school, an alternate kit may be provided for the session.
- Parents are asked to clearly label every item of school clothing with their child’s name.
- The children are responsible for taking care of their own items of uniform.
- There is a designated lost property area located in school. Any items left unclaimed are periodically disposed of or recycled.
- If there is any reason why a child cannot wear our uniform or requires special dispensation (e.g. health or religious grounds) then the governors will consider sympathetically any such request from a parent/carer.
White polo shirt.
Dark grey skirt or trousers.
Bottle green sweatshirt with the school logo.
Green gingham dresses or grey shorts may be worn in the Summer term.
Black/brown shoes (not training shoes or pumps)
- Plain white T-shirt or school polo shirt, plain black shorts, training shoes or plimsolls.
- A tracksuit is also useful for outdoor activities during the winter.
NB: On Health & Safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery to school. The exceptions to this are stud pierced ear-rings. We ask the children to remove these during PE lessons or, if they cannot be removed, to cover them with a plaster brought in from home. This is to prevent them from causing injury.
- PE kit should be taken home every half term and returned the following term
Jewellery and Hairstyles
On Health & Safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school except for simple studs when ears have been pierced. Hairstyles should be sensible and suitable so that children can concentrate on learning.
Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform. The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Headteacher has given permission.
