Hamilton School, Hamilton Road, Handsworth, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B21 8AH
Due to the Special Educational needs and disabilities of the children at Hamilton school, it is optional for parents to purchase a school uniform for their child.
Children can attend school in comfortable clothing, because those with sensory sensitivity may find certain clothes itchy, heavy or tight which can lead to a sensory overload.
However, for those parents who wish to purchase a school uniform, as a school, we have a duty to make sure that the uniform parents can choose to buy is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform. Parents have an option to purchase branded items or non-branded items of the same colours which can be purchased more widely from most supermarkets.
Parents are asked to ensure that all items are labelled clearly with their child’s name.
For safety reasons we ask that the children do not wear jewellery in school.
We understand that items with distinctive characteristics (such as branded items, or items that have to have a school logo or a unique fabric/colour/design) cannot be purchased from a wide range of retailers and that requiring many such items limits parents’ ability to ‘shop around’ for a low price. Should parents and carers wish to purchase a branded school uniform, they can do so through our school website.
We will make sure our school uniform:
