The school strongly urges all children to wear a uniform. This is fully endorsed by the Governing Body. The uniform consists of any grey or black trousers, tailored shorts, skirts or pinafores with a white shirt or polo t-shirt and a red jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt. Red sweatshirts with the school logo are available from Cat Ballou. Prices are about £8 depending on size. Plain black school shoes should be worn, trainers are not permitted. In summer, red and white checked or striped dresses may also be worn. Second hand uniforms may be available from the school.
It is important that even our youngest can dress and undress independently, so various fastenings should be kept to a minimum. T-shirts are easier to cope with than shirts, and pull-on joggers help with dressing and undressing.
A separate PE kit is essential for all children. Children will need a pair of plain, dark coloured shorts and a T-shirt. They will also need a pair of dark coloured jogging trousers. Pumps are not needed for gymnastics and dance, but must be worn for games lessons inside or outside. Trainers may be worn for outdoor PE but are not to be worn all day.
On health and safety grounds , we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are small plain gold or silver studs in pierced ears, small discreet watches and small objects of religious significance.
We may ask the children to either remove these objects during PE and games, or cover them in line with our PE/ Health and safety policies, to prevent them from causing injury
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children e.g shaved designs.
Pupils having swimming lessons must follow the dress code of the swimming pool they attend. For girls this is a single piece swimming costume and for boys a pair of trunks, not shorts. A swimming cap should be worn with long hair. If your child has a veruka then you will be required to provide a veruka sock.
Please note make up and nail varnish are not permitted
