Uniform

As it is necessary to buy suitable clothing for school, it has been agreed (after consultation with the parents) to adopt a school uniform. We believe that a school uniform gives children a feeling of belonging, encouraging co-operation, common goals and team spirit.

Most items are available from any local department store. The sweatshirts and T-shirts which have the school logo are only available from school. We are well aware of the cost of clothing and urge you to clearly label every item of your child’s clothing to avoid loss, confusion and time wastage

The uniform is as follows:

Winter Uniform:

  • Grey/black skirt or pinafore dress
  • Grey/black school trousers (NOT jeans,hipsters, tracksuits etc.)
  • School sweatshirt with logo or school blue jumper/sweatshirt
  • School cardigan with logo or school blue cardigan
  • White polo shirt/white shirt
  • Sensible dark shoes/boots

Summer Uniform:

  • Checked dress, blue and white
  • Grey/black trousers/shorts
  • White polo shirt or white shirt
  • School sweatshirt with logo or school blue jumper/sweatshirt
  • School cardigan with logo or school blue cardigan
  • Sensible shoes
  • Sun hat

All children take part in PE – it is a statutory requirement, only medical certificates allow exemption.

Kit required for PE and games:

  • PE bag suitably labelled
  • blue T-shirt with logo
  • plain navy shorts
  • plimsolls
  • training shoes
  • white socks
  • football boots can be worn for the appropriate lesson

A school book bag, school PE bag and school baseball cap for summer sun protection are also available from the school. All children with long hair should ensure it is tied back whilst they are in school. This is for Health and Safety reasons.

Jewellery
Please discourage your child from wearing jewellery to school! Jewellery is easily lost or damaged and more importantly, can cause unpleasant injuries. If your child’s ears are pierced, please see that they wear only studs which cannot be caught in
clothing, causing torn earlobes. We cannot accept responsibility for jewellery worn to school.

We also thoroughly discourage children from wearing nail polish.
