School Uniform

UNIFORM
 
We encourage all our children to wear the school's uniform.  It is not only smart and practical, but gives the children a sense of belonging and of being important members of the school community. 
 
The Government is asking school governing bodies to ensure that the uniform chosen is widely available in high street shops and other retail outlets, rather from an expensive sole supplier. Following a consultation with parents from both the Infant School and Junior School, the following uniform was chosen:
 
• Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with white or light blue polo shirts;
• Grey or black trousers/skirts;
• Blue and white summer dresses for girls;
• Black shoes or black trainers – no boots or trainers of any other colour;
• P.E. kits: white or light blue polo shirt, black shorts and white socks, plain jogging bottoms and sweatshirt for winter, plimsolls or trainers (it is important that your child has an additional pair of shoes for P.E.)

Royal blue is a colour that is easily accessible from retail outlets. 
In addition, we offer the following: 

Within school we will be selling the following:Book bags with school logo:

  • P.E. or swimming bags with drawstring;
  • Baseball caps;
  • Badges, which can be sewn on to uniform items purchased from other retail outlets. 
 
It is important that you name all uniform items of clothing.  As you can imagine, missing items without names are extremely difficult to find!
 
All children taking part in P.E./Games will need to change out of their everyday clothes into appropriately clean P.E. clothing, which provides a freedom of movement and, when necessary some protection from the weather.

It would be appreciated if your child's P.E./Games clothing could be available in school for their lessons. P.E. bags can be left on children’s pegs during term-time. 
 
Jewellery is not suitable for school wear, but named watches may be worn.  Children with pierced ears may wear one pair of small studs.  However, during P.E. and swimming we require children to remove their earrings and any hair accessories with sharp edges for safety reasons. 
If this causes difficulty, when your child has P.E. or swimming, please ensure that your child does not wear earrings to school.  If your child is unable to remove their earrings they will not be allowed to go swimming or take part in P.E. lessons both of which form part of the statutory curriculum. 
To assist you, your child's class teacher will inform you of P.E. and swimming times.
