On health and safety grounds pupils should not wear jewellery to school. The only exceptions to the rules are as follows:

  • earrings are not encouraged but a plain stud in each ear may be worn. Pupils must be able to remove their own earrings as they are not allowed to be worn for PE. In the case that earrings cannot be removed they should be covered with tape.

The wearing of nails varnish, tattoos and make-up is not permitted.

Hair and hair accessories

Long hair should be tied back and styling should be standard. Hair accessories should as slides, bobbles, ribbons etc. should be simple and in school colours.

The role of parents

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. It is the responsibility of the parents to send their child to school in the correct uniform, that is clean and in good repair. If a parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy (e.g. for religious or health reasons) they should make representation, in first instance, to the Headteacher.

The role of staff

The class teacher will speak to pupils who do not wear the correct uniform. The Phase Leader will talk to parents of pupils who persistently do not wear the correct uniform in an attempt to resolve the situation.

The role of governors

The governing body supports the Head in implementing the school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the Head to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity. It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities. Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.

Monitoring and review

The governing body monitors and reviews the school uniform policy by:

  • seeking the views of representative parents, to ensure that they agree with and support the policy;
  • considering, with the Headteacher, any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensation with regard to school uniform;
  • requiring the Headteacher to report to the governors on the way the school uniform policy is implemented.

 

Policy

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • Is practical and smart;
  • Identifies the children with the school;
  • Prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind.

Our policy takes into account all the recommendations from the government.
The 3 key recommendations are:

  • the policy should not discriminate on the basis of gender, race or religion;
  • cost should not pose a problem unnecessarily, it should be possible to buy uniform cheaply on the high street;
  • the school may discipline pupils who do not comply with the school uniform policy.
