School Uniform

Children are actively encouraged to wear school uniform every day and we believe it develops a stronger sense of identity and belonging as well as creating a positive image among parents/carers and the wider community. We appreciate the support of parents/carers with this and encourage you to ensure that your child always wears uniform.

School uniform providers

Our uniform has been kept simple to avoid unnecessary expense. We expect all pupils to follow the dress code as written above.

Parents/carers can purchase school uniform and PE kit at any retailer, such as supermarkets, however, sweatshirts and PE shirts with an embroidered school logo are available to buy online from Brigade. They have the full range of our uniform available. Please follow the link to purchase school uniform: https://www.brigade.uk.com/parents/

We do have second hand uniform available from time to time, so please do ask the school office if this is something you require.

Very important - please ensure all clothing is clearly named.

Hair

Hair should be neat and tidy and extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school.  The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.

Please leave enough time for any shaved patterns or dyed hair to grow out before the start of a new term.

Long hair should be tied back during Physical Education lessons with a suitable soft item to prevent entanglements in apparatus and to prevent it obscuring vision.

A simple hairband or Alice Band may be worn to tie long hair back but anything added as a fashion accessory e.g. bows, Alice bands with ears, unicorn horns, etc, are not permitted.

Make-up and nails

  • Nails need to be sufficiently short to prevent injury to self and others, especially in Physical Education lessons.

  • No make up or nail varnish should be worn.

  • No false nails are permitted to be worn in school.

Jewellery & watches

  • Earrings can be worn (studs only) but can cause a particular problem for P.E. Earrings should be removed by the child during P.E./swimming. Staff are not allowed to remove or insert earrings.

  • No other jewellery can be worn to school e.g. bracelets, chains, etc.

  • Children can wear watches, but not watches that connect to mobile phones or to the Internet and take photos, e.g. Apple Watch, Samsung Watch, etc. These watches are a distraction and also very expensive, should they get broken, or lost.
