Uniform

We consider our school uniform to be a crucial part of the high expectations that we have for our school. 

Your support is much appreciated and we would ask that all parents ensure that children come to school dressed appropriately.Most items of school uniform can be purchased from any supermarket or high street retailer. 

The only items that are specific to our school are indicated below in red.  These can be purchased on line from our uniform supplier http://gooddies.co.uk/school-list.  The school office have sample garments for you to come and try for size before placing an order as there is no ‘free returns’ service available with Gooddies.

Jewellery

Children are not allowed to wear jewellery to school, save for stud earrings. In addition, staff are not allowed to remove earrings for children, so they shouldn’t have their ears pierced until they are of an age when they can remove and replace the jewellery independently. Children are not allowed to participate in any PE activity whilst wearing any form of jewellery. Earrings must be removed, by the children, before any activities begin. If the children are not able to remove earrings, parents must do it for them, on the day that they have PE, before they come to school.

Swimming

The children will swim during the summer term. Children must wear swimming hats. The pool filters operate whilst the children are in the water and it is possible that hair could be sucked into the filters. Consequently, those children who do not have hats will not be allowed to swim.

Some children like to wear goggles. KCC policy is to discourage this, as there have been a number of accidents in which goggles have snapped back into children’s faces, when they have been attempting to take them off. If a child wishes to wear goggles, parents must provide written confirmation of this to the teacher.
Children with verucas are required to wear veruca socks, otherwise they will not be allowed to swim.

The Governors of the school request the support of all parents in providing the appropriate uniform outlined.
