The school uniform is as follows:
- Red Sweatshirt
- Red Cardigan
- White or Red Polo Shirt
- Grey or Black Trousers or Skirt
- Grey or Black Shorts in warm weather (or cold if you have hardy legs as some of our children seem to have!) or red checked dress
- Warm Winter Coat for the colder months and access to Waterproof Coat in the warmer months - we will go out for playtime in all weathers so please make sure your child has access to the waterproof coat in particular in the spring and summer months.
- Wellington Boots for the school field. These are kept in our welly stores on the playground
- Sensible School Shoes (Not trainers, sandals or any shoes with an open toe or heels)
On days your class has PE, please come to school in your PE kit.
Some parents/carers have asked for clarity in the trainer style school shoes that are sold by many outlets. We feel as long as this style school shoe is in black then these are suitable for school.
Please can we also ask that elaborate hair ties and bands are not used as it can be distracting for other children who are sat behind children who are wearing these especially when on the carpet and in assembly.
Please can we ask that no hoodies are worn in school some of our children who need support with behaviour use them so that they do not have to interact with adults around them. We understand that this can be a sensory need bit we have other strategies to support these children
We ask that no jewellery is worn in school except ear studs (not hoops) for pierced ears.
Please can we ask that every item of school uniform is named including wellingtons, PE trainers and school shoes.
We feel the uniform policy is important for the following reasons:
- Gives the children a sense of belonging to the school and a pride in their appearance.
- Helps the morning routine as parents/carers do not have to decide what children wear.
- It helps when we go out on the many school trips as children are recognisable and easy to spot.
- It is cheaper than expensive clothes with labels.
- It supports good behaviour especially when all children wear school uniform. For example it supports the school’s Behaviour for Learning Policy when parents/carers support the school’s request that their children wear school uniform. This gives the message to your children that school requests are important and are listened to.
