School Uniform

The aim of the school policy is to encourage a sense of identification and belonging to our school. We believe that wearing a uniform contributes to excellent behaviour for excellent learning and shows our school unity to the local community. 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.

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 within 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
  • adheres to ethical trading standards
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind

We ask for co-operation from our parents to ensure that pupils are suitably dressed and thus represent the school and themselves appropriately. The uniform guidance is clear and the uniform itself is intended to be economical, practical and smart. Most of the uniform is generally available, but specific items that bear our logo can be bought online at Tesco (items marked below with *). Further suppliers are being sought.

Make up and CosmeticsPhoto - new uniform

Make up and cosmetics (including nail varnish) 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.

Time Scale for implementation

It is recognised that changing the school policy will require a reasonable amount of time to implement so as not to cause unnecessary costs to parents. The policy has been approved by Governors in March 2015 and will be implemented from May 2015. It is expected that there will be full compliance by May 2016.  This gives us the final half term to resolve any issues that our families may have before the start of a new school year in September 2016.

We acknowledge that children who are leaving us in July 2016 may still choose to wear the ‘old’ uniform until they move to High School and we are happy for them to do so.

 Cash-back

As part of our deal with the chosen supplier, school will receive 5% cashback from all uniform purchased. This money will be donated to a chosen charitable cause that is supported by the school.

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