UNIFORM

Information about school uniform

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.

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.

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.

NURSERY

For children entering Nursery (FS1), we would like you to fit in with the school uniform colours. We understand that children are involved in lots of messy play and so we recommend that children wear easily washable clothes.

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