is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when
attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event
outside normal school hours. We provide a complete list of the items
needed for school uniform in our school prospectus.
Aims and objectives
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school
a sense of pride in the school;
a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
practical and smart;
the children with the school;
children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be
distracting in class;
children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by
designed with health and safety in mind.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear
jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring
studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance,
such as a crucifix on a chain. We ask the children to either remove
these objects during PE and games, or cover them with a plaster, to
prevent them from causing injury.
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts
that could serve as a distraction to other children.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We
believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have
platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear
such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear
trainers to school; this is because we think that this footwear is
appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with
the smart appearance of a school uniform. We require all children to
wear shoes as stated in the uniform list.
The role of parents
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support
the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to
send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their
daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure
that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in
If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy,
they should make representation, in the first instance, to the
headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and
faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on
religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that
differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically
at such requests.
The role of governors
The governing body supports the headteacher in implementing the
school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents
regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the headteacher to
ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.
It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school
uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities.
Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to
dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.
Monitoring and review
The governing body monitors and reviews the school uniform policy
through its committee work by:
the views of parents, to ensure that they agree with and support the
with the headteacher, any requests from parents for individual
children to have special dispensation with regard to school uniform;
the headteacher to report to the governors on the way the school
uniform policy is implemented.
