Sweatshirts, Cardigans and Polo shirts
Sweatshirts or cardigans should be navy blue and polo shirts should be red. All items should have an embroidered school logo and can be purchased from our school uniform providers (LogoLeisurewear and Tesco). Alternatively, items can be can be purchased from elsewhere and a sew-on school badge used.
Trousers, Skirts, Shorts and Dresses
All trousers, skirts, shorts and dresses should be black or grey. Any shorts (not worn for PE) should be of the smart variety and should be of a reasonable length. Neither sports nor skin tight shorts should be worn. Skirts should also be of a reasonable length. Pinafore dresses (black or grey) and gingham summer dresses (in red) are permitted.
Shoes and Boots
All school shoes and boots should be black. Boots can be ankle or calf length. Trainers can be worn but they should be predominantly black (preferablyall black) and have no large logos. Decisions on whether the trainers are suitable for school will be at the headteachers' discretion based on this policy. Any slipper style shoes should be firm fitting. Straps are recommended for this type of shoe. Platform or high heels are not allowed.
Socks and Tights
Any visible socks or tights should be school colours (black, white, blue, red or grey) and should not be striped or patterned.
All children should wear a warm coat in the winter months. Coats should be waterproof when rain is forecast. Coats can be any colour or variety. Coats in school colours with the school logo are available from the school’s uniform supplier.
Children should wear a navy t-shirt with the school logo, black shorts (black pumps should be worn for indoor PE). In Key Stage 2, children should have a pair of trainers for outdoor PE. Tracksuit tops and bottoms are optional but necessary in cold months. Children should keep their PE kit in a draw string bag on their peg and be available on every school day in case it is needed.
Jewellery is not allowed at school with the exception of watches and simple stud ear rings. We prefer children not to wear ear rings for school because they can cause health and safety issues and can get lost.
We understand that children may need to wear ear rings in the weeks after their ears have been pierced and so recommend that if parents would like their child’s ears to be pierced that this is arranged early in the summer holidays. The Department for Education’s policy is that no jewellery is worn for PE therefore parents should provide tape for their child’s ears if ear rings cannot be removed.
A wide range and variety of hair styles are acceptable for school. Children should however, not have fringes which fall below their eye brows or have their hair dyed an unnatural colour. Children with long hair should wear it tied back or bring a bobble to school (to tie it back) for particular activities where loose hair may be impractical e.g. P.E. food technology etc.
Nail varnish should not be worn for school. We discourage make up and any make up worn should be subtle e.g. to cover up spots.
All clothes worn at school should be clearly labeled with the child’s name. We strongly recommend that sew on name tapes are used for these (iron on tapes often fall off and biro writing on labels fades). We ask that parents attach name tags on to the inside of collars. In the case of shoes, names should be written on the inside of the tongue.
Religious Customs and Beliefs
We are happy to accommodate modifications to our school unfirom policy to enable children and their families to adhere to religious customs and beliefs. We ask that parents contact school first to discuss such modifications. The school will try to be as accommodating as possible but does reserve the right to decline certain requests on health and safety grounds. We will always take advice and refer to DfE guidelines before declining any request.
Review and Consultation
This policy will be reviewed on a regular basis. Parents, pupils and staff will be consulted before any changes are made.
