Uniform

The Governors require all children to adhere to the school dress code. This provides pupils with a sense of belonging to the school and improves our profile within the community. It also promotes the right tone for learning and a sense of pride in their appearance. We also feel that from a practical point of view it will help parents take the worry out of what children wear for school and, in the long term, reduce the financial burden.

The school uniform consists of:

Girls

  • Black/dark grey pinafore dress, skirt or trousers
  • Royal blue jumper/cardigan/sweatshirt (preferably school issue)
  • White polo shirt/shirt/blouse
  • White/black/dark grey socks
  • Black/dark grey tights may be worn instead of socks
  • Black shoes – practical/hardwearing with a low heel that can be cleaned

In summer, royal blue gingham or striped dresses may be worn as well as practical sandals (not slip-ons).

Boys

  • Black/dark grey trousers
  • White polo shirt/shirt
  • Royal blue jumper/sweatshirt
  • White/black/dark grey socks
  • Black shoes – practical/hardwearing with a low heel that can be cleaned

In summer, black/dark grey tailored shorts may be worn as well as practical sandals.

Boots are NOT allowed in school but practical boots (eg Wellingtons) may be worn for the journey to and from school in bad weather.

Swimming

Swimming currently takes place with the Year 4 children. All children who go swimming require a swimming costume/trunks, a towel and a bag. Children with long hair will require a swimming hat.

Jewellery and Earrings

No jewellery may be worn in school. However, children with pierced ears may wear a single set of small metal studs, but these must be removed for all PE sessions due to Health and Safety Regulations.

We advise that, if you have your child’s ears pierced, it is done at the start of the six-week summer break, giving the holes a chance to heal so that studs can be easily removed by the child. School staff are not allowed to remove or replace studs.

Hair and Cosmetics

All children are expected to have sensible hair styles. Shaved designs (in hair or eyebrows), extensions and dyes are not appropriate for school and are therefore not permitted. Make-up, including nail varnish, is also inappropriate for school and should not be worn.

Temporary Tattoos

Please do not allow your child to come to school with temporary tattoos.
