School Uniform

Our policy is based on the notion of ‘look smart – act smart – be smart’ and that a school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • Engenders a feeling of community and belonging;
  • Is practical and smart;
  • Identifies the children with the school;
  • Is not distracting in class (as opposed to fashion clothes);
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • Is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by the majority of parents;
  • Has been designed with Health and Safety in mind.

JEWELLERY

 

On Health and Safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. If a child wishes to have his/her ear(s) pierced, we ask that this be carried out at the beginning of the summer holiday, so that the healing process is completed by the time school starts again in September and the ear stud can be removed. In the rare cases when a child cannot remove their ear studs, parents must provide a letter with appropriate plasters that the child can themselves apply to cover ear studs during PE lessons. If they are not covered the child will not be able to take part in PE lessons. In these circumstances only plain studs may be worn.

Children who attend school wearing earrings without permission will be instructed to remove them immediately.

Inexpensive wrist watches may be worn in KS1 and KS2, however, if a watch is designed for games or making disruptive noises, it cannot not be worn whilst in school.

HAIR AND MAKE-UP

The school does not permit children to have extreme haircuts or colouring that could serve as a distraction to other children. Hair bands, clips etc should be discreet designs in colours compatible with school colours and only used in order to keep hair in place. Long hair should be tied back with blue or black bobbles for practical subjects, including P.E. Some hair ornaments, such as clips, slides or headbands that are of plain design, may need to be removed for P.E. on the ground of Health and Safety.

Boys are not permitted to have Mohicans or shaved designs sculpted in their hair.

No make-up, including nail varnish, may be worn during the school day. Similarly, temporary transfers of fake tattoos are not permitted.

Children who attend school wearing makeup shall be asked to remove and wash off immediately.

FOOTWEAR

The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels in school, so we do not allow this. Shoes made of breathable material such as leather are preferred. We do not allow children to wear trainers to school; these are appropriate for sport or as leisurewear, but are not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform (including travel to and from school). We require all children to wear the types of shoe described in the uniform list. Shoes which incorporate flashing lights or similar distracting gimmicks in their design are not appropriate for school wear.

Winter boots/wellington boots may be worn to and from school during bad weather but shoes must be brought to school and worn during the school day. Flat sandals that provide firm support may be worn in summer but they must have a heel strap to ensure that the foot cannot slip off the sandal.

SEASONAL SAFETY

All children require a coat in school when the weather is changeable, cold or wet. On hot, sunny days, children should be protected from the sun when outdoors by;

  • Wearing a hat/cap
  • Wearing an appropriate SPF 30+ sun-screen that has been applied at home, or that they have brought to school to apply themselves (Adults in school are not permitted to apply sun-screen)
  • Wearing sunglasses with a CE mark which conform to British Standard BS EN 18361977 and are of a design/colour compatible with school colours
