All children are expected to wear our school uniform. This consists of navy blue skirt/trousers, ‘jade’ or navy polo top and sweatshirt or cardigan. All these items, with the school logo, may be purchased from School, through our supplier. The logo is not compulsory, and you may be able to buy suitable clothing from a local shop.
An order form for the school uniform may be obtained from the school office. Items may be purchased on selected evenings through the year or through the school office.
Children should wear sensible flat shoes. Shoes with high heels are not approppriate neither are flip-flops in the summer time.
All items of clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name.
Jewellery, or other body adornments, must not be worn in school. Children will be asked to remove jewellery which will remain the child’s responsibility. It can be a safety hazard and it encourages theft. Watches are acceptable at the owner’s risk.
Earrings are of particular concern due to the danger they present to your child during PE and at playtimes. For this reason we would prefer your child not to wear earrings but, if this is not possible, only studs should be worn.
For PE children will need a plain white T shirt and a pair of plain navy blue shorts. They will need trainers or pumps for outdoor PE; indoor PE is done barefoot. For health and safety reasons children must change for PE. You will be informed of the days on which your child does PE. PE kit should be named and kept in a drawstring bag at school all week. It should be taken home only at weekends and holidays to be washed.
During PE long hair must be tied back and ear studs must be removed. * If your child is unable to remove the studs his/herself then they should not be worn on PE days. We suggest that, if you wish your child to have his/her ears pierced, it is carried out during the summer holiday, when they do not have to be removed for some weeks; otherwise they should be covered with elastoplasts for PE.
Watches need to be removed for PE and remain the child’s responsibility.
Parents appreciate that these measures are taken in the interests of childen’s safety and well-being and are in accordance with the Local Authority’s, and national, Health and Safety Guidance.
Children go to Kippax baths for swimming lessons in Year 4. Your child will need a swimming costume and towel in a suitable, waterproof bag. Your child’s teacher will tell you on which days swimming equipment is needed.
Toys in school
Children are not permitted to bring toys from home – this inevitably causes disappointment and disruption when they are lost, broken or stolen.
Children may bring things in to show the teacher and their class, but not toys to play with at playtime. (This includes collectable cards/stickers).
Children should not bring money to School unless it is for a specific purpose and is handed in to a member of staff.
Mobile phones are not permitted in school.
The school has the right to confiscate forbidden items (including mobile phones, sweets, medicine, money, knives) which will be returned to a pupil at the end of the day to take home.
