Uniform Information

Please note that children are expected to come into school in their PE kit on the days that they do PE.

Introduction 

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school organised event outside normal school hours. 

We also provide a complete list of the items needed for school uniform in our school website. 

 

Aims and Objectives 

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform: 

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school.
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school.
  • is practical and smart.
  • identifies the children with the school.
  • prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class.
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents.
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.

Jewellery 

On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are:

  • earring studs in pierced ears.
  • small objects of religious significance, such as a crucifix or a taweez.
  • a wrist watch (must not be oversized or expensive in value).

 

 Please note that school will not be responsible for the safekeeping or loss of such items.

 

Medical Identification/Medical bracelets may be worn by children who have significant medical problems eg. Diabetes or epilepsy.

 

Hair and Extreme Haircuts 

The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.  Hairstyles and haircuts which are deemed too extreme such as tramlines, stars, shaved heads (No shorter than a number 2),  extreme patterns ‘V’ styles, Mohican cuts, or dyed, tipped or dipped hair are also forbidden. 

 

Pupils with long hair should also tie it back for safety reasons. We expect children with hair that is shoulder length and longer to have hair tied back.  Only small plain bobbles are allowed.  Large fashion hair accessories and large bows are not permitted.  

 

Footwear 

The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school; this is because we think that this footwear is appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform. We require all children to wear black shoes as stated in the uniform list. 

 

In winter time, winter black shoes or boots may be worn. Fashionable boots like Ugg boots are not allowed to be worn in school.

 

The Role Of Parents 

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair. 

 

If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy for medical/religious reasons, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests. 

 

The Role Of Governors 

The governing body supports the Head Teacher in implementing the school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the Head Teacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.

 

It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities. 

 

Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.   

 

Monitoring and Review 

The governing body monitors and reviews the school uniform policy by:  

  • seeking the views of parents, to ensure that they agree with and support the policy;
  • considering, with the Head Teacher, any requests from parents for individual children to have special  dispensation with regard to school uniform;
  • requiring the Head Teacher to report to the governors on the way the school uniform policy is  implemented.
