Uniform

The wearing of the school’s agreed uniform is seen as a clear statement of commitment to school by children and their parents / carers. Our uniform aims to ensure comfort and safety while children carry out normal activities of the school day.

 Our logo uniform is available from Trophy Textiles, Unit 2D, Pool Business Park, Dudnance Lane, Pool TR15 3QW, Tel:  01209 713341

 Uniform requested is:

Red sweatshirt - Sweatshirt carrying the school logo.

Red cardigan - Can be worn as an alternative to the sweatshirt.

White shirt - Standard or polo style. Plain or with the school logo.

Black/grey trousers - Boys and girls.

Black/grey skirts - An appropriate length to participate in all normal school activities.

Red/white check - Summer dress (summer wear, if preferred).

Socks - Black or grey for boys.  Black, white or grey for girls.

Tights - Grey or black.

Shoes - Should be flat, black or at least dark in colour. Closed sandals are appropriate for summer wear.

 PE Kit

All children should have appropriate clothing to change into for PE lessons. This should be in school on all school days as the timetable for PE may vary according to hall availability, and other changes to the school day. PE Kit should consist of the following:

T Shirt - Red with the school logo.

Shorts - Black.

Plimsolls/trainers - As appropriate but there should always be a change of shoes for PE activities.

Tracksuit/sweatshirt - To be worn during outdoor activities in colder weather.

Note – Watches need to be removed for PE.

Earrings need to be removed or covered for PE lessons - children need to provide own tape.

Please do not send children to school with expensive trainers or ‘sports kits’ whether it’s for curriculum P.E. or after school sports clubs. We accept no responsibility for lost items.

 Other aspects of appearance and presentation in school

 Hair

Long hair, including braids, must be tied back. We request that there are no ‘extreme’ hairstyles eg tram lines, mohicans, bleached stripes. Hair gel, dye and razor cuts are aspects of fashion and whilst we accept that children may wish to follow fashion in their own social lives, a primary school is not the place for this.

 Earrings

One pair of stud earrings is acceptable for girls and boys. If they are worn, they will need to be removed or taped for PE activities. This is a safety measure and for this reason only cannot be negotiated. Children should be able to remove them or tape the earrings themselves.

No other jewellery is acceptable in school, again on safety grounds.

Make up, including nail varnish, is not considered appropriate in a primary school.
