The School considers school uniform to be a very important aspect of school and life and an indicator of a desire to set a high standard. The uniform has been carefully chosen to ensure that most of the items can be obtained from multiple stores. However, you are asked to provide your child with the correct school jumper, tie, PE colour team t-shirt and yellow blouses, all of which are obtainable from:
545-547 Wimborne Road,
This kit is left on the cloakroom peg and is returned home for washing at half term.
This kit should be brought into school on the day of the games lesson, and will return home after each session.
Grey skirts should be knee length. It is not acceptable or suitable for children to wear tight skirts, skirts with slits, ankle length or short skirts to school.
Children may wear grey trousers of the appropriate style – these are widely available and also stocked by our school uniform provider.
Shoes. It is important that children wear flat or very low heeled shoes at school for safety reasons. The school cannot be held responsible for accidents due to inappropriate footwear.
Trainers are only worn for games lessons. Children are not allowed to change into their trainers at break time.
All clothing worn in school should be marked with the child’s name.
Watches may be worn by children in Year 2 and above. No jewellery should be worn to school with the exception of one pair of plain silver or gold ear-studs. These must be removed by children before all PE and Games lessons. If you are considering piercing your child’s ears, please do so at the beginning of the summer holidays to ensure they are healed before term starts and can be removed as required. Children will be asked to remove any item of jewellery that does not meet school policy. Items will be kept safely by the class teacher and returned to the children at the end of the day.
Nail varnish and temporary tattoos must not be worn. Should a child attend school with nail varnish or tattoos they will be removed.
Long hair (shoulder length or below) must be tied back with plain hair bands in school colours (black, brown, yellow, green). Coloured bands or hair slides are not permitted, neither are beads or braids. Children will be asked to remove hair accessories other than simple bands. Haircuts must be of an even length with no shaved patterns or definite steps or noticeably differing grades. Hair gel, hair colouring or styling products are not permitted at any time.
Children are encouraged to take pride in their appearance and the way in which it contributes to the community ethos of the school. In particular, sweatshirts/jumpers should not be tied around waists, long hair must be tied back and shirts should be tucked in. Children who do not comply to our uniform code including hairstyles and jewellery may not represent the school or take part in off-site activities.
