A simple uniform is helpful in establishing good standards of appearance in school and by wearing it, the children quickly feel part of the community. Pupils are expected to dress tidily and appropriately for school according to the anticipated activities and season. In light rain or cold weather the children will be expected to wear a coat.
We want pupils to look smart for school and we need the support of parents to achieve this. The school uniform is as follows:-
There is no formal expectation for specific styles of skirts, shorts, trousers etc. but plain, dark materials are considered appropriate. It is simple and practical and it shows a personal care about the school and their appearance. The majority of pupils do look smart and we are very grateful to parents for your support with this matter. Sweatshirts can be purchased from the school and cost £9.
The following items are not considered appropriate for school:
Parents are expected to ensure that their child is in school uniform every day. Please name all items of your children's clothing, so we can return any misplaced items of clothing. The wearing of jewellery is actively discouraged, primarily for reasons of health and safety.
To enable to participate in PE, it is important that children have a PE kit, including trainers. PE is usually taught outside. As the weather is changeable, we expect the children to wear shorts or a track suit, a T-shirt, trainers and a spare jumper (on colder days). Doing PE in school uniform is not accepted. A good quality school track-suit can be purchased from the school for £25.
Children (like adults) are sometimes forgetful. We would therefore like to ask you to put your child’s name into all his or her clothes. On hot days, school sweatshirts seem to be lost and found throughout the school. Please don’t allow your child to bring any valuables to school. In case an item gets lost, please ask the child’s teacher as soon as possible so they can help to find it.
