The school endeavours to ensure that our uniform is as gender neutral as possible.
The uniform is as follows:
- Navy sweatshirt or navy cardigan (ideally with the school logo)
- White or light blue polo shirt
- Grey or black trousers
- Grey skirt or grey pinafore (in summer, a blue and white summer dress may be worn)
- Black, sensible shoes
- Grey, black or white socks
- Grey or black tights
High heels are not permitted: sensible, plain black shoes must be worn by both boys and girls. Black jeans and leggings are not permitted in day-to-day uniform. All items of clothing and footwear must be labelled with the pupil’s name.
Our PE Kit
Children are asked to come into school on Fridays wearing their PE kit; they can wear it for the full school day. Children are asked to bring their PE kit in a bag on Tuesdays in order to regularly encourage independence in dressing themselves. Parents/carers are responsible for ensuring their child is dressed appropriately for PE.
The PE kit is as follows:
- Light Blue School PE top
- School PE shorts or skort
- A school jumper or hoodie
- Plain joggers (navy blue preferable)
All items of clothing and footwear must be labelled with the pupil’s name.
The only permitted jewellery that may be worn is:
- Stud earrings (no other piercings are permitted)
- A sensible wristwatch (not a smartwatch)
Jewellery is the responsibility of the pupil and not the school. Lost or damaged items will not be refunded.
All jewellery must be removed during practical lessons, for example, PE lessons / swimming lessons.
If children cannot remove their own earrings, then this should be done at home on the day of PE. If children are unable to remove their earrings due to being recently pierced, we ask you to provide sports tape to cover them.
School bookbags are recommended for children in KS1 (Beech Class) and school rucksacks for children in KS2 (Hazel Class and Oak Class). These are useful to transport books and water bottles to school each day.
All children should bring a water bottle into school every day: this can be refilled by children whenever necessary during the day.
Long hair (past shoulder-length) should be tied up. This is to avoid health and safety risks and ensure that children’s vision is not impeded.
At the headteacher’s discretion, there may be exceptions to the above in extreme circumstances e.g. a pupil may be permitted to cover their hair if they have hair loss / illness etc.
- Only clear nail varnish may be worn
- Children are not allowed to wear make-up
- Pupils wearing make-up are required to remove it or, if appropriate, will be sent home to remove it
At the Headteacher’s discretion, there may be exceptions to the above in extreme circumstances e.g. a pupil may be permitted to cover heavy scarring/skin damage
Everyone working at/attending the school during hot weather conditions should wear sun-safe clothing that covers as much of their skin as possible.
This includes wearing:
- Loose fitting tops
- Sun-safe hats
- Sunglasses with UV protection
- Sunscreen (children must be able to apply this themselves and it must be labelled and handed to the child’s class teacher)
Pupils are not required to wear their jumpers/cardigans during heatwaves.
Pupils not wearing sun-safe clothing/sunscreen may be advised to stay in an area protected from the sun.Cold Weather
During cold weather, pupils should wear scarves, gloves, coats and hats when they are outside.
Additional layers underneath the usual school uniform are accepted.
Where possible, pupils not wearing warm clothing are provided with spare clothing if going outside during break and lunch times.
School staff encourage good organisation of clothing and footwear, for example, designated spaces for children to keep belongings in and checking of labels. All pupils’ clothing and footwear must be clearly labelled with their name.
Clothing and footwear are the responsibility of the pupil and not the school.
If a child goes home in another child’s clothing by accident, parents/carers should send the clothing not belonging to them back into school to their child’s class teacher.
Any lost clothing is to be taken to the lost property basket. All lost property is retained for a term and is disposed of if it is not collected within this time.
