School Uniform

School uniform can be ordered via Brigade here.

Children should wear:

 

For PE, children can also wear black/grey plain joggers and a school hoodie (with the logo on).

 

For days that children have PE, they are to come to school in their PE kit for the day.

 

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school other than small studs in pierced ears and religious/cultural jewellery as agreed with SLT.  We ask the children to either remove these objects during PE and games.  If a child wishes to have his/her ear(s) pierced, we ask that this be carried out at the beginning of the summer holiday, so that the healing process is complete by the time school starts again in September and the ear stud can be removed.

In the rare cases when a child cannot remove their ear studs, parents or carers must provide plasters that the child can themselves apply to cover ear studs during PE lessons. If they are not covered the child will not be able to take part in the PE lessons.

Inexpensive watches may be worn. However, if a watch is designed for games, taking photos, is a ‘smart watch’ or making disruptive noises it should not be worn for school.  Any loss or damage of watches in school is not the responsibility of school staff, and replacements will not be provided by the school.

 

Extreme haircuts and make up

The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.  Hairbands, clips etc. should be discreet designs in colours compatible with school colours and only used in order to keep hair in place. Long hair should be tied back for practical purposes. No make-up or nail varnish may be worn during the school day.  Children may be asked to wash make-up and nail varnish off.  Similarly, temporary transfers or fake ‘tattoos’ are not appropriate.

 

Footwear

The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school other than for PE; this is because we think that this footwear is appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform. We require all children to wear shoes as stated in the uniform list.

Wellington boots may be worn to and from school during bad weather or as part of our Forest School provision, but shoes must be brought to school and worn during the school day. Flat sandals with covered toes that provide firm support may be worn in summer, but they must have a heel strap to ensure that the foot cannot slip out of the sandal. Black boots may be worn in the winter months.

 

A complete uniform policy is coming soon.
