School Uniform, PE Clothing & Jewellery

The School has a School Uniform and we urge parents to show good will and dress their children in School uniform whenever possible. The uniform is:-

  • Grey, black or navy blue trousers/jogging bottoms/shorts/skirt, white polo shirt, red sweat shirt/cardigan;
  • Pupils may wear the red summer dresses during warmer weather.

Parents may buy these items in local shops. Children should always be sent to school in appropriate clothing and footwear if they are not going to wear school uniform. Please make sure that your child’s clothing and other property is clearly labelled with his/her name.

Children should wear shorts and T-shirts for PE. They will also need to wear appropriate footwear for outdoor lessons.

Pupils taking swimming lessons should wear suitable clothing and may need to wear swimming hats and verrucae socks etc. if necessary.

School recognises that some children will wish to wear items of jewellery. Children will be allowed to wear certain items of jewellery provided they do not present any likelihood of injury or accident. Children will be allowed to wear stud earrings but will not be allowed to wear earrings, which hang or dangle and could be caught or snagged.

Children may be asked to remove or cover items of jewellery for certain activities.

Children will not be allowed to wear earrings for PE with one possible exception. Pupils who have had their ears pierced in the last six weeks will be allowed to wear studs providing they are covered during PE sessions.

Any items of jewellery brought to school shall remain the responsibility of the child and parent. The school accepts no liability or responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, any items of jewellery or any accidents caused by the wearing of such items.
