Other uniform items
- Brown book bags with school emblem. These must be used by FS2 and KS1 children.
- Brown school rucksacks can be purchased for older children.
- Hats, coats and fleeces can be purchased in school colours from our suppliers.
- The school expects that long hair is tied back to avoid accidents. Large headpieces are not appropriate. Small hair accessories should be in school colours.
- Boys are expected to have a tidy hair cut with no tram-lines or markings cut into the hair or shaving of the head as this is not an appropriate school style and may appear threatening to some. Tidy ‘plaiting’ styles reflective of culture are acceptable. Coloured hair extensions are not appropriate.
- Jewellery must not be worn although Year 6 children may wear a watch and girls with pierced ears may wear studs. These MUST be removed for PE on every occasion, even if the ears are newly pierced.
- We recommend that piecing is carried out in the Summer holidays to allow time for the holes to heal.
- It is not possible to sign a form accepting responsibility for any accident if children continue to wear earrings as the danger may be to other children in stepping on a stud etc.
- Sensible shoes with low heals and firm strapping or ties to avoid slips and falls.
- Boots/ankle boots are not appropriate footwear.
