All children are required to wear the school uniform. All children must have a school logo sweatshirt or cardigan. Other blue jumpers/sweatshirts/cardigans are not permitted. Uniform can be purchased from www.schooluniformsplus.co.uk and are sent straight to your home.
Black, grey or blue socks
It is also recommended that children bring a hat to school during the summer months.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. For school, children should wear low-heeled, plain black shoes. They must be plain black with no other markings, flat or nearly flat and suitable for your child to run about in the playground. Open toed sandals should not be worn, even in the Summer Term. For PE lessons, children should have a separate pair of plimsolls/trainers.
All children, girls and boys, are required to tie hair up where it is long enough to do so. This is for both health and safety reasons and to look smart and ready for school. Hair must be tied up in PE. In swimming, we require that all children wear a swimming cap. Children should not have extreme hairstyles including dyed hair, mohicans, mohawks, completely shaved heads, tramlines or hair with shaved sections as these can serve as a distraction to other children and undermine the overall smart appearance of our pupils. These fashion hairstyles should be kept for school holidays.
Hair accessories (ties and clips) must be plain, unobtrusive, and blue, black or white. Blue gingham (checked) scrunchies may be worn by the girls with the summer uniform.
Jewellery and Valuables
The only jewellery which may be worn at school is stud earrings for pierced ears (one small stud per ear) and wristwatches for children who can tell the time. No other jewellery is permitted. Children are expected to remove their own earrings when required. If children are sent to school with studs that may not be removed because the ears have been pierced within the last six weeks, then parents must provide tape to cover them in games and swimming lessons. The loss of children's possessions at school can be upsetting and accidents caused by children stepping on earrings during PE must be avoided.
Please note: staff do not put ear studs etc. back in if the child cannot manage it.
children come to school to learn. We believe that fashion items are best kept for home, and fashion accessories such as make-up, nail polish and jewellery, other than stud earrings and watches, should not be worn.
Fashion and availability of items from the high street change rapidly and therefore it is not possible to cater for every possibility within our policy. Therefore the school reserves the right to decide what is or is not allowed, both in uniform and general appearance, in cases not catered for by specific rules.
It would be advisable, when in doubt, for parents to contact the school before spending money on items which may not comply with our uniform policy.
Mobile phones are only permitted for KS2 pupils whose parents have authorised them walking to and from school by themselves. Separate information and guidance is available for parents of KS2 children.
The school cannot accept responsibility for valuables and jewellery brought to school by the children. Please remember to clearly label all bags, uniform and PE kits with your child's name.
