Parents Forum Tuesday 7 December

Uniform

Children are expected to maintain a smart standard of dress and must arrive at school wearing their sweatshirt or cardigans. Details of our uniform may be seen below.

Please contact the school office if you are having difficulty getting uniform items.

Please ensure that your child’s property is clearly marked with their name and class. This will ensure that should they accidentally leave it somewhere it may be returned to the rightful owner. Please note, that the school cannot be held responsible for the personal belongings of anyone on site.

We are asking parents to be mindful of bringing in as few items from home as possible. If the weather forecast is cold/wet children should wear/bring a coat, but if the forecast is good please leave coats at home.

As part of the COVID-19 controls it will not be possible for children to bring anything from home into school except: a coat; a small bag (ideally drawstring) with reading books, homework and snack in a pot. Packed lunch and water bottle should be carried separately. Each child will be provided with all the equipment that they require – pencils, rulers etc. – which will not be shared.

What is allowed:

Black/grey trousers/shorts,
White shirt/blouse/polo shirt with logo
Bottle green jumper/cardigan/sweatshirt,
Grey pinafore/skirt,
Green and white gingham summer dress,
Grey or black socks (girls may also wear white socks or dark green),
Black school shoes. Shoes should be flat, robust, and safe, with enclosed toes. Flimsy shoes are not going to be strong enough for the daily HiiT/amount of time spent outdoors. The shoes should not have any decorative material on them.

The following items are available to purchase through the School Office:

Sweatshirts
Book bags

To order (via ParentPay/School Office) we also have:

Polo shirts
Cardigans
Grey PE/Forest School sweatshirts
Green Sports ‘T’ shirts
Black jogging bottoms with school logo

Parents are asked to maintain standards by providing children with school clothing in the spirit of these guidelines. Please ensure all items are named

Jeans, cords, ski-pants, tracksuit trousers, trousers with large fashion zips, sports trainers, sports shorts, trainer socks or socks of a colour not listed above.

Hair should be natural colours during term time and long hair should be tied up whilst at school, as it can be dangerous during PE.

Bags should be small (preferably drawstring) and easily cleanable. Our school book bags are ideal.

Children should bring a water bottle that will remain with them at their desk all day. Following Public Health England guidelines, bottles should contain water, not squash, or juice.  Please speak to your doctor to get a note if your child needs anything other than water.
