Below you will find details of our school uniform.
There is an expectation that children come to school dressed in full school uniform. Our uniform can be purchased from JD Fashions on Church Street. It is highly recommended that parents order their uniforms before the 30th June 2021 to guarantee your order. No deposit necessary.
Reasons: The overwhelming majority of parents, staff and children expressed their preference for a school uniform. School uniform reinforces school identity and eliminates ‘brand’ fashion and stigma.
Winter Uniform – to be worn during the Autumn and Spring terms (after October half term – Easter).
Summer Uniform – to be worn during the Summer term (Easter – October half term).
Watches are the only items of jewellery which may be worn at school and these must be removed during P.E. and swimming lessons. Teachers are not to assist children with the removal of jewellery. If children cannot remove it themselves it should be removed at home on the days the child does PE. Children are not permitted to wear any earrings.
Reasons: Rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings etc. can turn a minor incident into a major accident if caught on apparatus or entangled in another child’s clothing or hair.
All children should wear a full school PE kit for lessons. This includes: a light blue t-shirt, navy shorts and trainers (not school shoes). Children should wear trainers for outdoor sports and plimsolls for indoor use.
Winter PE Kit
During the winter months (November – March) all children should continue to wear their full PE kit. However, we also ask that track suit bottoms (leggings for girls if preferred-navy blue) and a warm top (school jumper can be used) are included in your child’s PE kit. These will be used during outdoor activities to keep them warm. As with all other PE kit clothing, both bottoms and top should be our main school colour, which is navy blue.
In the interest of hygiene children should wear their full PE kit as stated above, in order to take part. If your child requires different PE clothing, for particular sporting events, parents will be notified. Children with long hair should ensure this is tied back at all times.
If children are unable to take part in PE lessons a note is required from a parent/guardian. Non participation work will be issued to those children deemed unable to take part in PE lessons.
PE during COVID-19
Children should come to school wearing their school winter PE kit on the days when they have PE. This will avoid issues with changing clothing and social distancing during this current time. Your child can continue to keep their school plimsolls, spare trainers and PE bags in school.
Children undertaking swimming lessons are required to wear an appropriate swimming costume (long swimming shorts are not permitted). All children are required to wear a swimming cap during lessons. Swimming is a statutory requirement and therefore parents of children unable to swim, due to medical reasons, should provide the school office with a doctors note.
