School Uniform

school uniform

Uniform plays an extremely important part in helping the children to develop a sense of identity with the school and in helping us to achieve the standards of work and behaviour we all wish for. We have appreciated excellent support from parents for many years and experience tells us that there should be no compromises.

Protective clothing should be worn for practical subjects (eg an old shirt). Long hair should be tied back. Jewellery should not be worn to avoid accidents or loss/damage, except one small stud in each ear if pierced (must be removed by the child for PE lesson, except within first six weeks of piercing, when
studs can be taped over - tape supplied from home).

Lost Property

All unnamed lost property is kept near the back staircase and parents are welcome to look there at any time. More valuable items such as watches are handed in to the school office. Lost property is cleared at the end of every term. Items which are not named are then either given away or disposed of. Please help us by making sure that everything is clearly marked with your child’s name!
We regret that we cannot accept responsibility for any personal property brought to the school and we advise that children do not bring items of particular value. Dinner money should be brought in a named purse and may be given to your child’s class teacher for safe keeping.
