School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school and setting an appropriate tone.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning since it:
Promotes a sense of pride in the school in line with our ethos
Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
Supports positive behaviour and discipline
Is practical and smart
Identifies the children with the school and encourages identity with the school
Protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance and helps
nurture cohesion between different groups of children
Ensures children of all races and backgrounds feel welcome
Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents
Is designed with health and safety in mind
All children, girls and boys, are requested to tie hair up where it is long enough to do so. This is for both health and safety reasons and to look smart and ready for school.
Hair must be tied up in PE. In swimming we request that children wear a swimming cap.
Non regulation hairstyles are not part of school uniform and should not be worn.These include:
Patterns cut into the hair
Hair that is long in parts and very short elsewhere
Hair that has been spiked up
Hair dyed, either wholly or partly, in a non-natural hair colour
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are plain, simple earring studs in pierced ears and watches. We ask parents wishing children to have pierced ears, to get piercing right at the start of the summer holidays so that earrings can be removed for PE lessons from the start of the new term. Where this is not possible we ask the children to either remove these objects during PE and games or cover them with a plaster to prevent them from causing injury.
