SCHOOL UNIFORM

School uniform can be ordered direct at Schoolshop: http://www.school-shop.co.uk/

We expect all our pupils to wear school uniform. This consists of a school logo sweatshirt or cardigan in navy blue, and a white or pale blue shirt or polo-shirt (with school logo or plain). The sweatshirt or cardigan can be worn with grey or black trousers or skirts. School summer dresses in blue and white can be worn in warm weather. Tights and socks should be black, grey or white, and school shoes should be black and flat (shoes with open toes and heel straps are not appropriate, as these can be dangerous in the playground).

For PE, the children will need shorts and T-shirts, and a pair of trainers. It is also useful to have a pair of tracksuit trousers or leggings, and a hoodie or zip top, in PE bags in case of cold weather. All PE kit should be plain and in the school colours – no big logos or bright colours.

Book bags, and also PE bags, can also be purchased from the school uniform website. Alternatively, children are allowed to use their own rucksacks for their school bag and/or their PE bag.

Please could parents ensure that all clothing, shoes and bags are named. Much time is spent when clothing goes missing or children are unable to identify items (and there can be tears!).

We strongly encourage the wearing of school uniform in school and on all educational visits. Many people compliment us on the smart appearance of our pupils, and we hope very much to have your support in this area.

JEWELLERY

For health and safety reasons, jewellery must not be worn at school. This includes bracelets, necklaces, earrings, etc. The wearing of jewellery may cause injury to the wearer or to other pupils. If studs must be worn, then these need to be removed or covered for PE sessions.

These rules are set for the safety of all pupils.

Nail varnish and hair colours should also not be worn in school.

Thank you for your understanding.
