School Uniform
We encourage all children to wear the school uniform as it helps set the tone and atmosphere within our school. The following items are part of our school uniform:
• A blue school sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece (these can be purchased from the school office and are embroidered with the school logo)
• A white polo shirt or shirt
• Grey or black trousers or skirt
• Summer dresses (blue and white gingham)
• Shoes should be plain black with either laces or a strap
Please could you ensure that items are clearly labelled so that if anything gets lost it can easily be returned to the family.


PE Kit
Children wear their full PE kit to school each Friday. This consists of a coloured T-Shirt linked to the House that they are in. Every child is given their first PE t-shirt upon joining the school and then, after that, we ask parents to buy replacement ones via the school office. We have recently (November 2020) decided to include Sports Hoodies in the house colours as part of our every-day PE kit. Black shorts or jogging bottoms should also be worn along with trainers or plimsolls.
All items of PE kit should be clearly marked and kept in school at all times. This should be kept in a PE bag (not a carrier bag) that can be hung from a peg or placed in a locker for years 2 and upwards.


Jewellery
The wearing of all forms of jewellery, such as rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings is not permitted. Children with pierced ears may wear a small, short stud. For reasons of safety it is essential that no jewellery whatsoever is worn during PE and Games. If you would like your child to wear pierced earrings, we suggest you organise this at the beginning of the summer holidays, as this will allow sufficient time for their ears to heal. We cannot be responsible for the safekeeping of jewellery brought into school with or without the knowledge of parents.
Children who wear watches to school must accept responsibility for them. They must be taken off during PE lessons and not handed to the teacher.
Cosmetics, including nail varnish are strictly forbidden.


Mobile Phones
These are not permitted in school. Should you feel that your child needs one for safety reasons, please discuss this in the first instance with a member of staff. Mobiles will have to be kept in the school office whilst the child is in school.


Art Shirts
We find it advisable for children to wear an overall or an apron for cover their clothes during art & craft activities. You will probably find that an old shirt will do nicely.
