Following consultation with parents and the Governing Body it was agreed that a school uniform is recommended.
- White or blue shirt/ polo shirt
- Blue sweatshirt or cardigan
- Grey or black trousers/jogging bottoms / skirt can be worn
- Blue and white checked school summer dress
- Flat black shoes or trainers (trainers are really ideal for school and enable children to be active throughout the day)
The sweatshirts and cardigans may be purchased from Motif8.co.uk and have the school logo on. Blue sweatshirts can alternatively be purchased in many local shops and these are perfectly acceptable for school. Black jogging bottoms or trousers can be bought from local stores. Please could all items of clothing be labelled with your child’s name; we continually have a large supply of school sweatshirts in our lost property box. We have a supply of washed second hand school uniform, which can be supplied to children if they haven’t got appropriate clothing to wear for school.
We have included a Year 6 leavers hoodie into our school uniform. Year 6 children may wear either a blue hoodie or a sweatshirt or cardigan. Leavers hoodies are available from Motif8.co.uk.
It is important that children are appropriately dressed for school; skimpy tops are not suitable. Wearing shoes with high heels or flip-flops is unsafe and parents will be contacted to bring alternative footwear to school if staff feel that footwear is unsafe.
In the summer could children bring a cap or sun hat and wear sun cream, which should be applied before they leave for school.
Jewellery is not appropriate within school and should be left at home. If jewellery is brought to school it is kept securely in the school office until home time. Children with pierced ears should remove their earrings for PE. If ears have been recently pierced, then children should wear studs only and the teacher in charge of PE will decide if they can be taped up safely; this will depend on the sports activity being taught. Children will not be able to swim or do Gymnastics with earrings in. Please avoid piercing your child’s ears during term time.
The school PE kit consists of black shorts or black jogging bottoms and a plain white T-shirt. We aim to avoid the competitive pressure children place on parents and each other to wear the latest expensive sports wear.
Children should attend school in their PE kit on PE days. This gives more time for PE as children were already dressed. Please send your child in black shorts or black jogging bottoms and trainers on PE days. They should continue to wear their school jumper. We appreciate your support with this. Please note that non-marking trainers are essential for sport in the Sports Hall.
Please can the children continue to bring their reading books in a book bag. The children are not allowed to bring rucksacks into school as we do not have the storage space.
