School uniform guidelines

School Uniform and Appearance

 

We take great pride in our uniform and it is important that all children and parents support us in ensuring that children have the correct uniform at all times. Our uniform has been chosen to keep costs as low as possible for parents and carers.

Items marked ‘*’ are available through our supplier, Stitch Design Ltd.

 

We are very aware of rising living costs and the impact this is having on our families. 

 

Therefore, with the support of the governors, for September 2022 we would like to give parents the option of buying plain green polo shirts (not scalloped collars),plain green PE shirts and plain navy sweatshirts. 

 

Please try to match the green of our logo t-shirts. It is important that all children are in clean, smart uniform.

Shoes

  • Shoes must be fully covered and ‘sensible’ shoes for a child to run in – in wet weather, open shoes will get very wet.
  • We will allow black trainers for those that prefer them and where this would be more sensible (ie some children play football at break times). However, it may be more comfortable and better for foot support to have a shoe that has a good grip and is also suitable for play. Black trainers must be completely black – no coloured/white logos or coloured laces – the more they look like a shoe, the better.
  • Wellington boots may be worn to school instead of shoes when necessary (ie in the snow) and children will wear the same when on the playground.

 

During the winter months it is also helpful to provide your child with a spare pair of socks to be kept at school in case of bad weather.

 

All Y2 and junior children (Y3 – Y6) wear black indoor shoes, which need to be different from the footwear they wear to and from school, and at break times. This allows children to wear suitable shoes for the weather to and from school and at playtime. This also allows the children to use our outdoor learning areas throughout the year.

 

Other requirements - ALL CHILDREN 

 

  • All long hair (shoulder length or longer, both boys and girls) should be tied back
  • Hair accessories must be small and plain (eg hair bands or scrunchies, which should be in school colours – blue/green or black/brown). 
  • Hairstyles must be plain, with no dyed or shaved patterns. Hair gel may be used to keep hair tidy, but not for fashion styling. 
  • Nail varnish must not be worn in school.
  • Earrings - plain gold or silver ear studs, in the lobe (not glass/diamond-effect/emblems, etc.) Children must remove their earrings themselves for PE and swimming. Hooped earrings are not allowed and no other piercings are permitted. 
  • The only other jewellery permitted is that worn for religious or medical reasons (which requires a letter of explanation), and a named wristwatch (smart watches are not permitted)

The school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to jewellery.

All other uniform items are available from a multitude of shops (supermarkets, school outfitters, etc.) and may be obtained relatively cheaply.

 

Sizing: If you need to check the size of sweatshirt, cardigan or t-shirt, please ask at the office, where samples are kept. 

 

 

Children swim from Reception in the autumn term (until October half-term, or until it becomes too cold) and throughout the summer term, and require a swimming costume/trunks, and a swimming cap. Caps are available from our school office for a small charge.
