Policy on School Uniform
The wearing of the school uniform is strongly recommended on the basis that
(a) it need not cost more than other clothing
(b) it is a cohesive factor to pride in the school
(c) it looks neat and business like
(d) the competition for `fashionable` clothing is eliminated
2 Aims and objectives
Our policy is based on the notion that a school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in the school;
- engenders a feeling of community and belonging;
- is practical and smart;
- identifies the children with the school;
- is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be);
- makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
- is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents;
- has been designed with health and safety in mind.
- Navy sweatshirt with school logo
- Pale blue polo shirt with school logo

In the interests of health and safety the wearing of any jewellery except wrist watches is forbidden. If ears are to be pierced please arrange for this to be done at the beginning of the summer holiday to ensure that by the commencement of the Autumn term there is no need for sleepers to be worn. Children will not be allowed to wear sleepers in school
It is again strongly recommended that all pupils wear `sensible` black shoes for school. trainers may be worn during breaktimes. Plimsolls or indoor trainers should be worn for PE in the Hall. Outdoor trainers should be worn for outdoor PE lessons.
