Summer School Uniform
Children may wear summer uniform during the summer term and for the first half of the Autumn Term (at parents’ discretion). Girls may wear a white blouse (long or short sleeved) and tie, with a grey skirt or school kilt or purple school summer dress. Summer dresses must be fully checked material.
Boys are required to wear a tie – but may wear short-sleeved white shirts. Please note that polo shirts are not suitable school wear. Sensible sandals may be worn, brown or black for boys and brown, black or white for girls. All of our school uniform and girls’ summer dresses are available from our school uniform suppliers.
During cold or wet spells of weather, please encourage your child to wear outdoor clothing including suitable coats and footwear, which is appropriate for the conditions. Please be aware that the weather can change very quickly in a day and so children should always have a suitable jacket or coat with them in school.
School Uniform Suppliers:
Please ensure that any items of clothing, which your child is likely to remove or put on during the school day, are clearly named. School cannot accept responsibility for lost clothing or items.
Only the following items of jewellery can be worn in school:
Watches (including SMART watches) and Activity Trackers.
In our school uniform policy children are allowed to wear a watch. Our preference is for an analogue watch as this helps the children when and as they are learning to tell the time.
Our policy has always been and remains that SMART watches are not allowed in school. This includes any watch that has the ability to access the internet, take photographs, receive text messages etc (for example Fit Bit Blaze, Fit Bit Charge or Apple watches).
What we will allow is a very simple and inexpensive band style watch without an interactive face or screen that can also track activity and steps, an example of this style of watch is pictured below. However, if any watch begins to cause a distraction during lesson or learning times then this will be dealt with on an individual basis when and if it occurs.
Hopefully, having access to activity and step counting watches will help our children benefit from continuing to track their activity during school hours as they certainly enjoy running around during their lunchtimes and playtimes and keeping fit is always a target worth encouraging. We would always remind you that any watch brought into school is done so at your own risk and therefore we recommend that watches are not expensive or precious if worn for school.
Children with long hair should have it tied back and only white/yellow/black/purple hair adornments should be worn. Large hair bands, for example with substantial bows including Jo-Jo Bows or sparkles, are not permitted. Coloured hair braids (often following holidays) should also be removed before children return to school.
The use of hair gel is not permitted or shaved hair patterns, including closely-shaved heads: no cuts below Grade 2. No hairstyles mixing short on the sides and long on top. Children should not have fashion haircuts to school. If your child currently has one of these from the holiday, please allow them to grow out now they are back in school.
We suggest if you have a holiday haircut this is at the start of the holiday so children can return with hair in line with the policy at the start of the school term.
Children should have short nails when in school. Please note that children should not wear nail varnish.
Often children in key stage 2 come to school with big bags containing very little. Children do not need a pencil as this is provided for them. In Year 5 and 6 you may want to provide your child with an inexpensive fountain pen. We really do struggle for space in our cloakrooms and so we would request that you send your child with the smallest size bag possible. Our preference is for the following purple packets.
In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 our preference is the smaller of the two versions of the purple bags.
In Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 our preference is the larger of the two versions of the purple bags.
This smaller version fits into children’s trays neatly and really helps us to keep the classrooms safe and tidy.
We would also ask that you consider removing the shoulder handle from the purple packets as these can cause a trip hazard as the children carry them or in and around school.
In school children should have:
A purple packet (for reading book etc)
A Pump Bag for PE kit
Additionally, there are times children bring a games kit and Forest Schools clothing in a small ruck sack.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND CARRIER BAGS INTO SCHOOL AS THEY ARE A POTENTIAL HAZARD.
This includes when sending in a packed lunch.
Children should bring a water bottle into school each day. This should:
