School 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
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Our colours are navy blue, grey and white and the uniform is as follows:

Boys

  • School navy blue sweatshirt with school logo
  • School white polo shirt with school logo (white shirt for Year 6 with tie provided by school)

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.

Make up and Cosmetics

Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform. The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Head has given permission.

All kit must be stored in a draw string bag which remains in school during the week and is taken home at weekends to be washed.

All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child’s name

Samples of school uniform are available for inspection via the school office.
