School Uniform    

The school uniform is detailed below. We hope that all the children will wear our uniform, as this helps them to feel part of the school.

                             BOYS                                         GIRLS

Winter                Royal blue sweatshirt                Royal blue sweatshirt

                             Grey trousers                            Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers

                             White or blue shirt                   White blouse

Summer                 Grey shorts                            Blue and white checked dresses

                             White shirt or polo shirt

Sweatshirts may be purchased from the school office at a cost of £6.00.

All clothing must be clearly marked with the child’s name.

Footwear   

It is recommended that shoes be black and of a sensible type for school. Training shoes or fashion shoes should not be worn. Where possible, for younger children, shoes should be of an easy fastening type.

PE Kit   

All children need a white t-shirt and a pair of blue shorts for PE. These should be brought to school each Monday, and then be available for the rest of the week. In the summer children will need trainers for outdoor activities.  PE bags are available from the office for £3.00.

We insist that all children change for any PE lessons, and also that they remove PE clothes at the end of the lesson and re-dress in school uniform. The school Health Service regards training in the habit of changing for physical activities as most important for health and hygiene.

For Health and Safety reasons children who wear earrings must remove them for PE and games.  We would prefer that they are left at home on PE days especially as we are advised by the LA not to take out any child’s earrings.  If for any reason the earrings cannot be removed then they should be covered back and front with elastoplast or micropore. If earrings are not removed or covered, then the child will not be able to take part in the activity. We are advised by the LA that for normal school wear, sleepers are not safe and only studs should be worn. In play activities it is very easy for sleepers to be caught, and the ear torn. Advice given to schools is that we should warn parents that children who wear earrings where the point projects behind the butterfly clip, are at risk during normal playtime activities.

Bookbags   

Bookbags showing the school name and logo are available from the office at a cost of £4.00.  These are shower-proof bags large enough to carry reading books and library books.

Valuables  

Parents are asked to ensure that children do not bring treasured or valuable possessions such as toys, jewellery or unnecessary money to school. We cannot accept responsibility for these items, and loss or damage is upsetting for all concerned.

Hair  

For Health and Safety reasons, we ask that children with long hair have it tied back for school. It is much easier for children to work if their hair is not falling over their face. When hair is tied back there is a reduction in head to head contact and therefore the transfer of head lice.
