Uniform

The wearing of our school uniform will start in the nursery and we encourage pupils to wear school uniform whenever possible.  We believe that if pupils take a pride in their appearance it can influence their attitudes and general conduct both in and out of school.  A school uniform price list is available from both the infant and junior department offices.

Pupils in the school choir will be required to wear a school tie when performing at formal events – these ties will be provided by the school.

 

In hot, sunny weather please provide your child with a sun hat (caps available in school).

 

We ask for the support of parents in our efforts to maintain a high standard of appearance for our pupils.

 

To this end we request that you do not send your children to school in jeans, cords or tracksuit bottoms.

 

The wearing of trainers and boots indoors is discouraged.  The dirt, which lodges in the ribbed soles, is carried into classrooms and onto carpeted areas; this creates cleaning problems.  Neither are trainers, which have been worn as shoes suitable for indoor work in the gym.  It would be appreciated therefore if pupils could wear shoes to school.  During bad weather whenWellingtons, boots or heavy shoes are worn we require children to change into lighter footwear for indoor use.  These could be their P.E. shoes.

 

P.E./GAMES KIT

 

Pupils are required to have in school a pair of plimsolls, a red polo shirt, and Navy shorts for use in P.E. and Games lessons. Football shirts are NOT permitted. (The school has the new red polo shirts with logo and Navy shorts available to purchase). A drawstring bag (clearly named), which can be hung in the cloakroom, is useful to hold pumps and kit when not in use.  These can be taken home at weekends for laundry purposes.  Please do not use carrier bags because they tend to split when hung on pegs and items become lost.

 

The school’s netball and football kits will remain the same and will be provided by the school.

 

The wearing of ear jewellery other than small gold studs by all pupils is discouraged because of the likelihood of injury being caused during P.E. and play.  For ease of identification we ask that all items of clothing be marked clearly with pupils’ names.
