Due to COVID, our uniform policy has changed a little and is currently as follows:
Children should wear a school sweatshirt and school polo shirt and jogging bottoms, leggings or PE shorts (Black PE kit), plus trainers. This is so that there is no changing for PE and having additional bags in school for the first few weeks – this will be reviewed in the first term.
Pupils will need to wear a clean set of clothes each day. It is important that clothes are clean, practical, and suitable for both inside and outside learning, as we will not be changing for different activities. Footwear should be trainers or daps every day. Please do not send your child in with an additional PE kit.
Usual uniform code is as follows:
Boys and Girls:
- School jumper/cardigan, white polo shirt or white shirt.
- Black school shoes or plain black trainers.
- Boots are ONLY allowed in the winter (Dec - Feb) and these must be black leather- not suede.
- (Ugg boots, heels, suede, canvas and open toed shoes are not allowed)
- Grey or black knee length skirt/pinafore dress/trousers or tailored school shorts
- Summer dresses - blue and white checked gingham.
- Plain black or grey tights. Plain black, grey or white socks.
- No hair accessories apart from a simple plain Alice band
- Grey or black trousers or tailored school shorts
- Black or grey socks.
- Long hair should be tied up and off the shoulders with a simple band (including boys)..
Children may wear a plain ‘quiet’ watch and small stud earrings.
(No other jewellery, make-up or nail varnish may be worn)
Jumpers, cardigans and book bags can only be ordered through Marks and Spencer’s on line, but the remaining uniform can be purchased from a supplier of your choice. Please ensure that all articles of clothing are clearly named; this makes returning property to the correct owner much easier!
Hair & Makeup
Long hair must be tied back whilst in school. Loose hair over the face can also be a distraction whilst reading, writing etc., and a nuisance when doing Art, Craft, Cooking and PE. Extreme styles such as Mohicans and shaved patterns are not acceptable in school. Likewise, please do not allow children to dye their hair. Both boys and girls will be asked to tie back their hair when it touches their shoulders.
No makeup should be worn to school including nail varnish. Children should not wear tattoos.
The Health Authority no longer carries out regular checks on children's hair but the occasional problem of head lice still remains. To avoid this, we ask parents to make regular inspections, with careful brushing and combing to help identify unwanted passengers. Please help us in this matter.
PE and Games Kit
All children are expected to take part in P.E. and Games lessons. Please will you send a note if you consider your child is unfit to do so.
Plain white t-shirt, navy or black shorts. (Please note that arm and leg length should be above the elbow or knee.) Children do indoor PE in bare feet.
As above plus dark sweatshirt and dark jogging bottoms for cold weather, training shoes or daps.
All PE Kit should be kept in a named PE bag. Swimming costumes and towels are required for junior children - teachers will inform parents of the term in which children will swim. Children must change into suitable clothing for all physical activities. All children are expected to take part in P.E. and Games lessons.
