Uniform & PE Kit
The school has a compulsory school uniform. As well as encouraging a smart and tidy appearance it gives our children a sense of identity within the school. The school colour is red. Red fleeces, coats, sweatshirts or cardigans, red and white polo shirts, red tee-shirts, book bags and baseball caps can be purchased from school at a very reasonable price. Grey skirts and trousers can be bought from local department stores. All children should wear sensible black shoes or plain black trainers. In the summer, crocs and flip-flops are not allowed for health and safety reasons. Long hair should be tied back at all times.
A PE kit is necessary in order to ensure safety and promote hygiene and should be kept in school at all times during term time. The PE kit should comprise of black or navy shorts/PE Skirt, tee-shirt, plimsolls for indoor PE, and trainers for games and outdoor PE. Appropriate track suits may be worn during cold weather. PE kit should be kept together in a small PE bag (which
can also be purchased from school). Large holdalls are discouraged due to lack of space.
All articles of clothing must be named.
Children are not allowed to wear jewellery (with the exception of an inexpensive wrist watch) to school. If earrings are worn they must be studs.
There is a County ruling that school children should not wear earrings during PE as they can cause pain or damage during physical activities. Ear studs, if not removed, must be taped up during PE and games and must be removed for swimming. School staff are not allowed to remove earrings being worn by a pupil. Nose studs are not allowed. Nail varnish should not be worn at any time.
Whilst adequate precautions are taken to safeguard all property on school premises, the Governors and staff of the school cannot take responsibility for loss or damage of any money or valuables brought to school. Mobile phones are not allowed in school.
