Those children who receive swimming tuition will require a swimming kit. Boys should wear either swimming trunks or short swimming shorts. Girls should wear a one piece swimming costume. All children will also require a towel. 

Jewellery, Headwear and Make-up

Children may not wear jewellery to school (except for small studs and watches) other than for religious or cultural reasons. We do not allow headwear to be worn during class time or inside school buildings, except for religious or cultural reasons. Hairclips and hairbands should be plain and non-decorative. No make up to be worn including nail varnish. Preferably, long hair is to be tied back.

Reasonable Requests for Variation of Uniform

The uniform policy has been adopted with consideration for ethnicity, religion and belief and disability. Requests for variations to the school uniform which are directly related to particular established social, religious or cultural traditions, however, will be considered on an individual basis by the Senior Leadership Team. Legitimate requests for variation under health grounds will also be considered and will require medical evidence.

Role of Parents and Carers

We expect parents and carers to support the school uniform policy. Children should come to school in uniform every day unless there are special circumstances such as dressing-up or charity fund raising days or events. Uniform should be kept clean and in good repair. Please label all children's clothing so that if lost, it may be reunited with its owner. Unlabelled, unclaimed uniform may be considered the property of the school and be donated, sold or otherwise disposed of.

Role of the School

Non-compliance with the school uniform policy will be addressed immediately and by any member of staff in the following way. In the first instance, the class teacher or alternatively the school office will talk to the child regarding the explanation for non-compliance and any possible remedial action that might be required. The pupil will either be asked to change what they are wearing or will be given a shared-use uniform to wear for the rest of day. A letter will be sent home to parents/carers outlining what clothing item falls outside the policy. Where there is continued failure to comply with the policy, parents or carers will be invited in to school to meet with a member of the Leadership Team to resolve the problem. Exclusion can be considered for persistent and flagrant breach.

Review

This policy will reviewed annually.
