Uniform

The staff and Governors value and take pride in the school's dress code which we believe nurtures a sense of belonging, in keeping with our aims and values.

 

The following uniform is recommended by the Governors:

  • Trousers / skirt:  Grey or black
  • Shirts / polo shirts: Red or white
  • Sweatshirts / cardigans: Red (preferably printed with the school's logo)
  • Shoes (not trainers): Black
  • Summer dresses: Red / white check
  • P E Kit:  Plimsolls, red t-shirts and black shorts are needed for PE lessons. These should be kept in a bag at school, and taken home at weekends to be washed/cleaned. Shin pads are also recommended for games lessons which have elements of contact (e.g. hockey). For KS2, trainers may be worn instead of plimsolls.  In the winter months a track suit or similar is recommended.

 

Extreme haircuts, as decided by the school, or dyed or coloured hair are not acceptable.


Art/Craft/Design activities: An old shirt or apron is recommended for pupils in Y2-Y6. [These are provided for Reception and Y1 classes.]

 

PLEASE LABEL ALL CLOTHES WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME.

 

Due to Health and Safety considerations, the Governors have agreed
on the following guidelines:

 

· School shoes:  These should be sturdy and either black or navy. Heels should not be higher than 4 cm (approx. 1.5 inches).

 

· Sandals: These may be worn in summer provided that they are sturdy and fit well.

 

· Plimsolls: Parents will need to monitor the growth rate of their child’s feet on a regular basis to ensure that footwear is of an appropriate size at all times.

 

· Jewellery: Jewellery is not allowed in school, with the exception of the following:

o        If ear lobes are pierced, small ear studs only are permissible.
o        Watches may be worn

 

All jewellery needs to be removed during PE lessons. Parents need to ensure that children can remove earrings independently and we would like to remind parents that if you are getting your child’s ears pierced to do this at a time when it will cause least disruption to PE lessons and least distress to the child.

 

No responsibility can be taken by the school if any jewellery items are lost.

 

Buying Uniform:

 

The school maintains a supply of fleece jackets, sweatshirts and cardigans and red PE T-shirts and these can be purchased from the main school office. We also supply reading folders and PE bags with the school logo on and water bottles. The main office is open between 8.45am and 4pm every day.

 

It is also possible to buy uniform direct from the supplier, School Trends, by visiting their website at www.schooltrendsonline.com, then selecting Find My School and following the ordering instructions. There is no mimimum order required and goods will be delivered to your home address. Prices vary slightly from those available when buying from school and there is a delivery charge.
