Uniform Expectations for September 2023 Uniform Expectations 2023 – Click here School Expectations for September 2023 Uniform The school uniform colour is as follows: burgundy with blue. Plain burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan (with or without school logo) Blue polo t-shirts (with or without school logo) Black or grey trousers/leggings Black or grey skirt Black shoes / plain black trainers /appropriate smart black boots (no heels) Last year, we allowed trainers to be worn throughout the school day as they lasted longer than shoes, could be used for PE and playtime and were therefore a money saver to families. However, we will be strict on ensuring that they are plain black with no colour on. We will be focusing on presentation in Autumn 1 to ensure all children and families are following our expectations. In the summer, blue school summer dresses and black / grey tailored shorts are permitted MUFTI-DAYS On occasion, we will have a non-school uniform day at school, usually as a fundraising activity. We would expect children to come to school dressed appropriately wearing smart clothes e.g. no crop tops, hot pants, flipflops, sliders. PE Kits All classes will now have 2 sessions of PE per week. PE kits should be in school all week so that they are not forgotten. For PE activities, the children are required to wear: Plain burgundy t-shirt (with or without logo) Plain black shorts. Children will need trainers when required for outdoor PE but must bring these to get changed into. During the colder months, children can wear: Black leggings, black jogging bottoms Plain grey hooded jumper (with or without logo). Jewellery If earrings are worn, these must be small, plain, flat studs and restricted to one only in each ear lobe. Hooped earrings are not permitted for health and safety reasons. Children will be asked to remove these if they are not appropriate. Earrings must be removed / taped over during PE and the children must provide their own tape / plasters. Children are permitted to wear a wristwatch (not smart technology) but the school takes no responsibility if the item is lost or broken. Bracelets and necklaces are not permitted. If, for religious reasons, jewellery must be worn, this should initially be discussed and agreed with the Headteacher. Makeup Make up is not permitted in school unless stated by a medical practitioner for cosmetic purposes. If children arrive wearing makeup they will be asked to remove it. False nails are prohibited. Hair All children with long hair, must ensure that it is always tied back and particularly for PE. The school strongly discourages children coming into school with ‘extremes’ of hair styles/hair colours – whilst we fully appreciate children want to follow fashion trends, this is not appropriate for school. Children can wear small bows in their hair, however bows larger than 5cms are not permitted Lost property Naming all items of clothing reduces the risk of items becoming lost! Please name items of clothing with first name and surname. We do keep lost property for a reasonable time but is often difficult to identify items that are not labelled. If your child has lost something then please check in their classroom first. At the end of each week, any uniform that is not claimed is put out the front of school. OUTDOOR LEARNING: Years R – Year 6 For our outdoor sessions the children will need suitable clothes and footwear. They will need ready for September: A pair of wellies Waterproof trousers to go over the top of their uniform Waterproof jacket to go over the top of their uniform Gloves/ hat as the weather gets colder Please note these will get muddy/ wet as we will be engaging in lots of active tasks in all weathers- so they do need to be waterproof!
