The Department for Education strongly encourage schools to have a uniform. The governing body agrees with the Department for Education’s view that:
“A uniform can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion between different groups of pupils. Above all, many schools believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.”
We also believe that our uniform increases a student’s safety, making them easily identifiable.
School Uniform (boys and girls):
· Black, navy or grey trousers or shorts, skirt or pinafore. In the summer girls can wear blue checked summer dresses.
· Pale blue polo shirt
· Blue school sweatshirt / cardigan with logo
· Comfortable black shoes with low heels.
· Socks /tights plain, black, white, navy or grey
School sweatshirts and cardigans are available from School Trends www.schooltrends.co.uk
Games and Outdoor Clothing
· Navy T shirt
· Navy/black shorts or leggings (winter)
· Socks plain black white or grey
· Pair of plimsolls or trainers for P.E. lessons
· Football boots and shin pads, if children are playing football.
· In cold weather children may bring a pair of jogging trousers for outside games lessons and will be allowed to wear their sweatshirts.
It will be necessary to provide your children with suitable clothes and footwear for Forest School sessions and gardening. In the winter months, if children wish to play on the field at lunchtimes, we ask that they keep a spare pair of outdoor shoes and trousers at school to change into.
Please ensure that all items of clothing, including boots and shoes, are clearly marked with your child’s name.
· Hairstyles should be appropriate i.e. smart, tidy, not at the extreme of fashion and the colour should look natural throughout.
· Hair must not be extreme and should not be examples of artwork including tramlines, patterns, Mohicans and spikes. Eyebrow shaving is also not allowed
· The wearing of jewellery is considered inappropriate for school. Pierced ears – one pair of small studs i.e. one in each ear is allowed. For safety reasons these should be removed during P.E. lessons or covered with sticking plaster. This applies to boys and girls.
· Bracelets, neck chains and other such items are not allowed. Watches are permitted but should fasten closely to the wrist.
