Shoes

Outdoor footwear (i.e. wellingtons and furry boots) is only to be worn to and from school. If children choose to wear outdoor footwear to and from school they must bring in their plain black school shoes to wear during the day. Our preference is for children to wear plain black school shoes and not boots. However, your child may wear boots, with no embellishments, if they are worn under their school trousers. High heeled shoes, ‘Ugg’ style boots or open toed sandals are not acceptable to wear in school.

 

Jewellery

No jewellery is to be worn to school, except a watch and a single set of small stud earrings (which must be removed for PE and swimming). Hoop earrings and larger studs can be very dangerous and are unsuitable for school, as are necklaces, rings or bracelets.

 

Personal Appearance

Hair should be tied back if it is shoulder length or longer and children should not have patterns shaved into the side of the head or have their hair dyed. Hair ties should be small and discrete. It is also prohibited for children to wear nail varnish. School will provide acetone free nail polish for children to remove the varnish. Makeup is not considered appropriate for school and if worn, children will be asked to remove it.

 

Cultural observance

Girls may wear a black or purple hijab for cultural reasons. If pupils choose to wear headwear, it must be a solid black or purple and not require a pin or brooch to secure it. It must fit close to the head and not flap around. Headscarves are not appropriate for school; a hijab must be worn instead. Children wearing hijabs will need to ensure that they are safe during PE by either removing their hijab or by substituting it for a bandana that is tight to the head or a sports hijab.

White tights may be worn underneath summer dresses and trousers can be worn all year round.

 

P.E. and Games Kit Expectations

It is important that every child has a suitable change of clothing and footwear for physical education lessons. The following should be kept in a separate P.E. bag;

· Plain black shorts

· Plain white t-shirt

· Plain black leggings or tracksuit bottoms for cultural observance only

· Plimsolls or suitable trainers (not fashion sports shoes)

· In winter, a plain black tracksuit may be worn

  • No football kits please

 

Please ensure your child brings in the correct P.E. kit. Lack of kit does not allow for non-participation.

 

School equipment

Pupils have the opportunity to take books home from school. Pupils are responsible for ensuring reading, library books and learning logs are returned in a satisfactory condition and parents are required to pay for the loss or damage of school books. Therefore, all pupils must use a bag, for transporting books and homework to and from school each day. Book bags with primary school logo are available from the school office.

 

Monitoring

It is the class teacher’s responsibility to monitor uniform and discuss anything that is inappropriate with parents. If the matter cannot be resolved, an official uniform letter will be sent out stating the uniform issue and when it needs to be addressed by. If parents are having financial difficulties where uniform is concerned, they can seek support through the Family Worker team.

 

If at any point you are unclear about uniform or need financial assistance, please refer to the school office or our Family Worker Team for advice.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
