Uniform and Appearance
The School Governors have a policy of defining a preferred code of dress for our school and it is strongly recommended that parents adopt this.
Trousers and skirts - Dark Grey or black
Pinafore Dresses - Light or mid grey
Blouses/Shirts - White
Pullover/Sweater/Sweatshirt - Scarlet
Shoes - Black in plain style
Socks - White/grey/black
(to match other garments)
Sweatshirts displaying our own school logo are available from Pupils School Wear, Swadlincote.
Children will be asked not to wear jewellery for safety reasons, particularly during PE and games. However, children may wear small studs and watches in school. We strongly recommend children do not wear rings, necklaces and any valuable items because Governors cannot be liable for any losses. Children will be asked to remove watches and earrings for P.E. and swimming.
CLOTHING FOR P.E.
Having the appropriate clothing for either Indoor P.E. or Outdoor P.E. helps children and adults alike to perform their best work because they LOOK and FEEL specially dressed to do so.
No special brand, quality or price-range is encouraged but parents are requested to provide appropriate clothes for two types of activity.
1. GYMNASTICS, DANCE AND INDOOR GAMES
Children should wear black shorts and white T-shirt
2. OUTDOOR GAMES
Children should wear black shorts and white T-shirt.
Tracksuit or joggers and hoodie to be worn over shorts and T-shirt.
Children are currently coming into school on PE days wearing their PE kit so we request they wear their red school jumper.
BOYS - Swimming trunks AS OPPOSED to long beach swimming shorts
Swimming cap for long hair
GIRLS - One piece swimming costume
A swimming cap for all but the shortest hair
Children will be asked to remove all jewellery on Health and Safety grounds.
Parents will need to complete a permission form for their child to wear goggles (available from school).
