UNIFORM POLICY

Principles
It is our policy that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos.  We also believe it is important that certain activities are facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.  We provide a complete list of the items needed for children’s school uniform in this policy and in our school prospectus.

Aims
Our policy for children’s school uniform is based on the belief 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 fashion clothes might be)
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.

School uniform comprises of the following:

School Uniform – Nursery

Autumn/Winter: Navy jogging bottoms, pale blue polo shirt, sensible shoes, royal blue cardigan/sweatshirt may be worn.
Spring/Summer: Navy shorts, pale blue polo, sensible shoes, royal blue cardigan/sweatshirt may be worn.

* All items of uniform must be marked clearly and regular checks will be held to ensure lost property is at a minimum. 
* Jewellery (i.e. rings, earrings, etc.) must not be worn in school, as such items can be a safety hazard and are not covered by school insurance.

  • Children should not wear nail varnish, make-up or any tattoos including the stick on variety.
  • A pupil’s hair is a very important part of their presentation.  Long hair should be tied back neatly in a small bobble – large fashion hair accessories should not be worn for school.  Hair styles should be of a standard style, extreme haircuts e.g. mohicans, shaved symbols or designs are not permitted.
