Further Points:

PE. Trainers are only allowed when playing football at lunchtimes on the given day or for PE lessons. Trainers are required for PE lessons although children in EYFS (Apple and Ash classes) may wear daps/plimsols. Hair must be tied securely. Pupils are expected to change into white sports socks for health and hygiene reasons.

Jewellery. The wearing of jewellery is not appropriate for school. Pupils with pierced ears may wear one stud in each earlobe only. For safety reasons, these will need to be taped or removed for PE and swimming lessons. We request that anyone considering having piercings do so at the start of the summer holiday so that the jewellery will be able to be removed for the start of term.

Nail varnish and make-up must not be worn in school. Hair should be styled in a conservative manner.

Identification of Uniform. Please ensure all uniform is clearly marked with your child’s name with either a permanent marker or name tapes. Please ensure uniform is checked for identification at the beginning of each term. You may wish to investigate an alternative tag labelling system -Attach a Tag: www.attachatag.com

As per DfE guidelines the school does not profit from the sale of uniform.
