Uniform

We are proud of our school uniform and the way our children look. We ask all parents/carers to ensure that their children are dressed in the correct clothes and shoes, have PE kit in school and follow the guidelines on hair and jewellery. Please make sure all clothing is labelled with your child’s name.

School uniform (cardigans, sweatshirts, t-shirts, book bags and PE bags, caps, sunhats and shower-proof coats) are stocked at Boffins School Outfitters. The contact details are:

Hair:

Hair styles should be kept simple and appropriate for school. Girls should have long hair tied back with only blue and white hair accessories. Boys hair should be neat and tidy and appropriate for school, (‘razored’ or ‘tram line’ styles are not appropriate)

Jewellery:

Only the following items of jewellery can be worn in school:

Girls A watch, plain gold or silver stud earrings in pierced ears only

Boys A watch, one small plain gold or silver earring in pierced ear only

Please note; watches and jewellery are not permitted in the EYFS (Nursery and Reception).

If a child wears any earrings, apart from studs, they will be asked to remove them. Staff cannot remove earrings for children. Please think carefully about this if your child asks to have their ears pierced. The school cannot accept responsibility for any jewellery that may be lost. Children are not allowed to wear earrings during PE lessons for health & safety reasons; please can you ensure these are removed prior to the day.

In addition, no body piercings, tattoos (temporary or permanent), nail varnish or make-up is to be worn in school.

An overall is desirable to provide protection for children working with paint or craft materials. An old shirt from a parent is ideal and can be kept in class or in their PE bag.

If a pupil does not wear the required uniform a reminder letter will be sent home to parents/carers. PE kit letters will be sent home by the class teacher if the correct kit is not worn. PE kits are sent home at least half-termly.
