Uniform

We aim for our school uniform to:
  • instil pride in our school, encouraging identity with, and support for, our school ethos
  • look smart; wear well; be warm, comfortable, practical and smart for our children
  • allow our children to play safely without risk of shoes coming off, hair getting caught, etc
  • protect children when off site and make them easily identifiable to staff
  • make children feel equal to their peers in term of appearance
  • ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome, nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils
  • support positive behaviour management and discipline.
Guidelines and Rules

  • All items brought into school must be clearly named, this includes lunch boxes and drink bottles.
  • No jewellery, other than watches, should be worn to school because of risk of loss and Health and safety reasons. However, if your child does have their ears pierced then they should wear small, plain studs only. These will need to be removed for PE lessons. Studs in newly pierced ears must be covered with sticky plasters provided by you for no longer than 6 weeks.
  • Coats should be plain and dark coloured, preferably black or navy blue.
  • No makeup, including nail varnish, is permitted.
  • Shoulder length hair must be tied back (for health and safety - it can help to prevent the spread of nits/lice)
  • Trainers may not be worn in school, however an old pair of trainers is needed to go on the outdoor activity equipment.
  • Shoes must be worn in school buildings. If boots are worn when outside, children must change into shoes when indoors.
  • Additional sports bags are not permitted, as there simply is not enough room in the cloakrooms to accommodate them.
