Uniform

All children are required to wear school uniform. The school colours are navy and light blue (grey is acceptable for trousers and skirts).

We expect all of our children to look and feel smart when they attend school. Children are therefore expected to wear their uniform in a smart manner, for example tucking their shirt into their trousers / skirt, their top buttons are to be done up and their tie pushed up to the collar.

Hair which flops across the face must be tied back at all times and put up for PE.

All pupils are to wear shoes which have non-slip soles and flat heels to avoid the risk of slipping or tripping.

Reception

It is expected that children in the Reception Class will wear the above school uniform. However, they are not required to wear the school tie, if they do not wish to do so, and have the option of wearing a blue polo shirt instead of a blue shirt.

Outdoor

Outdoor coats should be plain and ideally dark coloured and waterproof. In the winter time or when it is dark, pupils should make sure that they are visible to motorists by wearing reflective material.

Jewellery

For safety reasons, no jewellery is permitted (this includes any earrings), at any time. Make-up, including nail varnish, is not to be worn. When hair is being tied back, hair bands and a clips/slides should be discreet – ideally in navy blue. Large bows, flowers and diamanté items are not acceptable. Hairbands worn for PE must be soft. Gingham ‘scrunchies’ are acceptable – if they match the pattern of a summer dress.

Hair bands (not for PE, because it is hard) and hair slides with bows are acceptable.

Watches

Children may wear a wristwatch; analogue watches are recommended, because the design of these watches supports learning about time better than watches with digital displays. Children may wear ‘fitness’ watches that measure steps and such like. Children may not wear any watch that has the capacity to do the following:

• connect to the internet;
• record audio;
• record still and/or moving images;
• record audio and still and/or moving images.

Children are not permitted to wear any watches if, in the school’s judgement, they detract from good
behaviour and/or good learning, or if it causes distraction, or causes a concern to the health and safety of the child or other individuals.

Badges

School issued badges may be worn – e.g. School Council.
