We encourage children to wear the school uniform with pride. School uniform sets the tone for learning and makes the children feel confident and part of the school. Positive attitudes to school are demonstrated by how children arrive well presented wearing the agreed school uniform.
Reasons to ensure your child comes to school in correct uniform:
The uniform comprises:
No short skirts or fashion items with logos should be worn. Trainers are not allowed except if brought separately for PE. We ask that parents purchase a school book bag for children in years Reception and Year 1 and school rucksacks for children in Year 2 to Year 6. No jewellery except for studs for pierced ears only.
Non-compliance with the Wearing of School Uniform
If children arrive out of uniform, reminder notes will be sent home and parents will be contacted to provide appropriate uniform or a time frame for when it will be provided. When speaking to the children the school will be considerate and discreet when trying to establish why a pupil is not wearing the correct uniform.
We understand that sometimes there will be a good reason for non-compliance with the wearing of school uniform. Where this is the case, parents should explain this to the child's class teacher upon arrival at school, either in a letter or in person.
Correct PE kit must be worn for every session and it is advisable for children to leave this in school at all times. It can be taken home for washing at the end of each half term (or more often if required). For indoor and outdoor PE lessons your child will need:
All clothing and PE bags must be labelled clearly with your child's name. As we have limited storage space in cloak room areas, large bags should be avoided for storing PE kits.
