Our School Uniform Policy follows the School Admission Code (paragraph 1.80 & 1.81).
The colours selected are readily available in high street shops. The school orders items of clothing from a school uniform supplier and these are reasonably priced and not sold to raise additional funds.
We have a simple uniform, of grey trousers/ skirt with a black sweatshirt or cardigan and a white polo-shirt. Fleeces are also available in black. The uniform for Physical Education is black shorts and a white T-shirt which is also available from school. In Key Stage Two children will also need to bring tracksuits / jogging bottoms and a black sweatshirt for outdoor sport. Parents are asked to provide their children with plimsolls/pumps suitable for all physical activities in a named shoe bag. In sunny weather children will need to have a sun hat in school.
All clothing should be clearly labelled with first and second name. Embroidered labels, iron on labels or a name written clearly with a laundry pen, helps to avoid loss and confusion. We lose valuable teaching time if clothing is not labelled.
Parents are asked to ensure that children’s shoes are safe to run and play in. Shoes need to be flat. In Key Stage Two tights and socks should be plain and co-ordinate with the school uniform. Boots are not permitted to be worn in school.
Jewellery should not be worn to school and to ensure children are safe earrings should be removed before P.E. or covered with surgical tape. Earrings can be dangerous to the wearer and other children and we would prefer that children did not wear them to school. Watches can be worn in Key Stage Two although parents are asked to note that we cannot accept responsibility for loss of, or damage to, personal property.
