School Uniform

Parents are asked to dress their children in school uniform as follows:

Girls

grey skirt, pinafore dress or tailored trousers [pale blue striped or checked dress for the summer] pale blue polo shirt school sweatshirt or navy blue cardigan school fleece

Boys

grey  tailored trousers [grey tailored shorts for the summer] pale blue polo shirt school sweatshirt or navy v-necked jumper school fleece Children in the Early Years Unit may wear navy blue jogging bottoms. Sunhats are strongly recommended in the warmer months as prolonged exposure to the sun in childhood can result in skin cancers in later life.

Footwear:

Black school shoes without a heel. All children require black plimsolls for PE and occasionally for indoor wear in wet and muddy weathers. Children may bring trainers for playtimes and outdoor PE.

PE Kit:

All children must have a PE kit in school. This comprises navy blue shorts and a plain white t-shirt in a named, drawstring PE bag. Children may bring in navy blue or black jogging bottoms for outdoor PE in the colder months. School sweatshirts, fleeces and polo shirts can be purchased direct from    http://www.stitchdesign.co.uk   All other items can be purchased from major chain stores. Pupils are not required to purchase any items from school. Please name all your child’s clothing and posessions clearly – they are easily lost and all look the same! We also encourage all children to have a blue reading book bag with the school logo on the front in which to keep thier homework and reading books. These cost £4 and can be bought from school. School bags are not required in school until Year 5 & Year 6.

Jewellery and Long hair:

Jewellery is not permitted in school unless this is for religious or medical reasons as it causes a health and safety risk. Please see Miss Esom if your child needs to wear any jewellery. If earrings are worn they must be small studs and not dangling or hoops. They must be removed or covered for PE. All long hair [reaching shoulders] must be tied back appropriately and hair must be kept off faces wherever possible as it can be a barrier to reading and learning in class.
