We are very proud of our distinctive blue uniform and original logo. Our re-brand prompted a renewed pride in our school and the presentation of our pupils. Uniform gives children a sense of community and supports an ethos of positive behaviour. We have a comprehensive uniform policy, it is requested that parents support their children in adhering to this and ensure that children wear both suitable clothes and footwear at all times. The wearing of trainers with this uniform detracts from the positive image our pupils have and is discouraged. Sensible (enclosed) school shoes are essential.
It has become increasingly fashionable for children to wear jewellery. This can be dangerous in school. NO rings, necklaces or bracelets are to be worn. Earrings, if worn, are limited to PLAIN STUDS (no more than one per ear lobe). These must be removed for P.E. and swimming. Make-up and nail varnish is not allowed. The only other permitted jewellery is a medical bracelet/ necklace or a watch. However, the school accepts no responsibility for any jewellery lost in school.
Hair that is shoulder length or longer is to be tied back at all times for all pupils. Inappropriate fashion statements, for example – haircuts including tramlines, steps, and patterns cut into the hair, gelled spiky styles, hair colouring (including bleaching), hair gel, and extra jewellery, are considered to be non-school uniform and as such are not permitted. It is only with the full support of all our parents that we can maintain high standards.
All year groups have the opportunity to swim, all children are required to bring a towel , swim trunks / one piece costume, swimming hat and verucca sock if required.
School Sweatshirts/Cardigans, T-shirts with the school emblem on and ties are available direct from the uniform supplier Brigade online at www.brigadeuniformdirect.uk.com
