Uniform

We believe that a school uniform is important and has been chosen with health and safety and cost issues in mind.

  • It looks smart
  • Wears well
  • Contributes to a sense of belonging
  • Gives a common purpose
  • Fosters a feeling of pride and equality

All children are expected to wear full uniform and we encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.

Boys – school sweatshirt, white polo shirt, grey/black trousers or shorts, sensible black shoes

Girls – school sweatshirt, white polo shirt, grey/black classic cut trousers, pinafore, skirt, sensible black shoes, (in summer also maroon Gingham dress)

Please see the school clerk for more details about our main suppliers who are currently Justs of Kingsfold Drive, Penwortham. This is for badged items only as other items can be purchased from high street stores.

Please name all clothing so that clothes found can be returned to the owners.

Jewellery should not be worn at school. If ears are pierced, children may then wear a single stud in the lower lobe of the ear only. No other types of facial piercing are permitted. Equally, children are not allowed to wear make up of any sort to school. For safety children must be able to remove earrings for PE, swimming and any other activity as requested by the class teacher. In some cases tape may be used to cover earrings for PE. This is at the discretion of the class teacher.

The school encourages pupils to have a smart overall appearance. Where a pupil’s appearance has a direct impact on children’s welfare, behaviour and/or education for the individual or class, the school may take steps to rectify the situation. The school reserves the right to apply the System of Care to implement this policy.

Additionally, for very clear Health and Safety reasons, pupils are not allowed to wear shoes with a heel height greater than 60mm. Students who attend school with unacceptable shoes will be required to change into safer footwear (provided by the school) and replace the shoes as soon as possible.

 

PE Kit

For health and safety reasons it is important that children are properly dressed for any physical activity. Our uniform for PE is as follows:
White T-shirt
Maroon shorts/ skirt for girls
Black pumps (Infants) trainers for outdoor games (Juniors)
PE kit should be kept in a named bag. It should be kept in school and returned home for washing at weekends and holidays.
Pupils will require swimming trunks (or shorts above the knee) or swimsuit and a swimming cap (with name on) for Years 4 and 5.
