It has been agreed by the governors of the school that uniform is compulsory. The emphasis is on smart dress (not fashion!).
The uniform consists of:
Hats may be worn in the playground for protection against the weather . . . wind & sun! School baseball caps* are available.
Hairstyles must not be extreme and any hair dye should be in natural colours. Make up is strictly not allowed.
* The items listed with an asterisk are available from the School Office.
Whilst on the subject of clothing please try and ensure your child’s name is clearly marked on all their clothing to avoid loss and ease of identification. We endeavour to return all named clothing promptly from the ‘Lost Property’ box. It is the responsibility of the pupils to look after their own clothing.
Please note that jewellery should not be worn to school apart from stud earrings for those with pierced ears although these must be removed for P.E. lessons & Swimming. Any other piercing is strictly not allowed.
If you are planning on having your child’s ears pierced then the start of the summer holidays is an ideal time so that they heal prior to re-starting school.
PE Kit is also compulsory for sporting lessons and this must be a change of clothes. Your child’s class teacher will let you know on which days of the week it is required although it may be left on the child’s peg/locker, in an appropriate bag, for a week/half term. It consists of:
Indoor – Strictly black shorts, light blue T shirt with names in and plimsolls!!
Outdoor – Shorts or joggers, T shirt and tracksuit top plus trainers. In Years 5 & 6 a pair of football boots would be useful for those wishing to play.
Swimming - Appropriate swimming costume (not loose shorts) and towel in a waterproof bag (plus hair brush/comb).
Please note NO Football Shirts etc. to be used for PE – only school agreed kit. As the children will be doing gymnastics in bare feet please ensure any veruccas have been sealed with Bazuka gel or an equivalent.
Failure to bring correct kit will result in less than green ratings on your child’s report and a reminder letter will be sent home as appropriate.
