School Uniform

 

 

All children are asked to wear school uniform. This not only looks smart and helps all children to feel part of the same school family, but it also helps to foster a positive working ethos.

 

The school uniform consists of:

 

CLOTHING CHOICES

 

  • Grey skirt/pinafore or grey school trousers (tailored)
  • White polo shirt
  • Navy sweatshirt/cardigan with or without the school logo
  • Summer: Blue and white gingham checked dress
  • Navy/black leggings may be worn  with skirts/dresses

 

 

FOOTWEAR

Children should wear black low heeled school shoes. Boots are not allowed in school but black trainers are permitted. These should be plain black.

 

Please note:

  • Children must not wear jogging bottoms, jeans or fashion trousers
  • Boots should not be worn inside school. During severe rain or snow, boots or wellingtons may be worn, but changed on entry into school as the corridors can become dangerously slippery
  • We request that pupils with long hair have it tied back. This not only looks smarter but reduces the risk of damage to long hair. Hair should not be dyed or patterns cut into it and large hair decorations should be avoided.  Plain hairbands in school colours are permitted. Children may wear a plain scarf of school colours (navy/black). For health and safety reasons, scarves should be tight fitting around the head and be modest in design.

 

School jumpers and cardigans with the logo may be purchased from "Moorhouses" which is located in the Fishergate Shopping Centre (see flyer below).  Alternatively, navy blue jumpers and cardigans can be purchased from supermarkets and other outlets.

 

PE KIT

  • Black/blue shorts (girls may wear leggings for P.E. if this is culturally required)
  • White t-shirt
  • Black plimsolls
  • Trainers (outdoors only)

 

Year 5 and Year 4 pupils need swimwear to take part in the L.E.A. swimming programme each year. This consists of swimming trunks and swim cap for boys and swimming costume (one piece) and swim cap for girls.

 

 

JEWELLERY

Jewellery is not permitted in school. Watches may be worn in school. Earrings are discouraged and if worn, should be removed on days where children have a P.E. lesson. Stud Earrings only are permitted.

 

LABELLING

It is important that all uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled.

 

BOOK BAGS AND WATER BOTTLES

School book bags (£5) and water bottles (£2.20) may be purchased through Parent Pay and the office will deliver it to your child's class.
