Pupils should wear our school uniform every day, unless it is a PE or Forest schools day. Jewellery, other than small stud earrings, is strictly not permitted - pupils must be able to remove earrings by themselves for PE, or microporous tape must be provided to cover earrings.
Pupils may wear a wristwatch, but this is at their own risk if it gets lost or damaged and smart watches that have a camera function must not be brought into school. Make-up, including nail polish is strictly not permitted. Long hair must be tied back.
Mobile phones and other electronic equipment are strictly not allowed in school.
The uniform is:-
Royal blue sweat-shirt or cardigan
White shirt, blouse or polo-shirt
Grey or navy skirt / pinafore dress / trousers / shorts /blue and white checked dress (summer).
Grey or white socks or brown, black or grey plain tights. Not brightly coloured or patterned.
Sturdy black, navy or brown shoes (not trainers) which are suitable for running around in.
Children will come to school in PE clothes on their PE day, there is no need to provide a change of clothes:
Royal blue school tee-shirt/ plain white tee-shirt
Dark coloured, plain shorts
Black pumps (lace-up or elasticated)
If tights are worn a pair of socks will also be needed; tights are not allowed for PE
Children MAY also have tracksuit/sweatshirt/embroidered school hoodie and joggers for wintertime, sensible trainers for outdoor use. Trainers are not a substitute for pumps.
All children must have a suitable waterproof coat to wear, as the children do PE in all weather conditions.
The junior children also need one smallish pencil case which should contain a number of pencils (HB), a pen (preferably a handwriting pen as we discourage the use of biros), a pencil sharpener and an eraser; and may also contain a few crayons or felt pens, maths equipment (protractor etc).
ALL clothing and equipment MUST be named clearly in a way that can be read by anyone. All children’s things look very similar, and we are unable to distinguish them, even if the child can.
Jewellery and makeup are strictly not allowed. Children may wear small stud earrings but must be able to remove them, unaided, for PE and swimming.
We recommend children with long hair, wear it tied back, at all times, to help prevent the spread of head lice.
