Children are expected to wear school colours and we are strict about this: it builds a sense of identity with the school – like wearing the right kit for a football team! The colours are royal blue, black, grey and white. We do have clothing available for sale at our school office with the school logo on it, but any clothing that is suitable for school life and the right colour is acceptable. We do not expect children to wear a particular style or colour of shoe, but it does need to be suitable for active school life. In PE pupils need a change of clothes such as shorts, a T shirt, leggings, or a leotard, plus suitable shoes for outdoor PE. The colour does not matter.
If a child forgets their kit they will take part in their ordinary clothes provided their shoes are suitable, and the clothes may get dirty so please make sure they have their kit! Children also need a warm outdoor coat as we take them out in most weathers! This can be any colour or style.
No jewellery is allowed for safety reasons. This includes earrings. If you want your child to have their ears pierced, please have them done at the beginning of the summer holiday so that they are healed by September and the earrings can be removed.
If you want your child to wear an item of jewellery for religious reasons you must write to the Governing body so that they can consider the health and safety implications.
Please, please make sure all clothing has a name in it – we can end up with many identical items!
