For reasons of smartness, giving children a sense of identity, particularly on visits, bringing the school in line with neighbouring schools and providing safe and practical clothing, the following has been agreed.
Our expectation is that all children will wear school uniform and this will be positively reinforced at school.
There is a clear code of dress (see chart). School sweatshirts and other items of uniform can be ordered through the PTFA. Please phone Mrs Lisa Hadley on 01823 481189.
Fleeces (optional) but advisable for the Winter/Spring terms and School baseball/sun hats (optional) but advisable for the Summer Term.
Shoulder bags in school colours (optional Yr1-6) can be purchased along with book bags.
Please mark all clothing with your child’s name. Please ensure that coats have loops for hanging them up. Lost property is cleared at the end of every term and half term.
For PE, please provide your child with white shorts and white t-shirt: maroon joggers are advisable for the colder weather. For hygiene reasons, children must change for PE and games, and change back afterwards. For activities such as football, it is advisable for children to have football boots. PE kit can be kept in named drawstring bags (or similar, eg. shoulder bags) in the cloakroom.
In the interests of safety, children with pierced ears should only wear studs in school. Parents are advised that even with studs there is an increased risk of injury in the event of an accident. It is recommended that children with long hair have it tied back for reasons of hygiene. Unless there is a note from home, all children must take part in all PE and games lessons.
