SCHOOL UNIFORM

  • Students must come to school in the full and correct uniform. Students arriving in incorrect uniform will be sent home to change; or parents will be contacted to come into the school and change their child into the correct uniform.
  • It is essential that you write your child’s name in ALL their uniform. It is not our responsibility to look after or find uniform that does not have a name in it. We believe in encouraging independence for our pupils, part of which is to look after their uniform.
  • No make-up, acrylic nails or nail varnish is permitted

In the interest of corporate pride and good discipline ALL pupils are expected to wear the following dress-code:

Property

  • Children should not bring valuable or expensive items such as toys, money, mobile phones, etc. into school. The school will not be responsible for loss or damage to such items. The school provides everything children need for learning and playing.
  • Property, including clothing and lunch boxes etc., should be marked clearly with your child’s name and class. There is a lost property box by the office reception. Any unclaimed items will be recycled.
  • ‘Home walkers’ will need permission to bring in a mobile phone, an appointment will need to be made with Miss Whittington.   If your child brings in a phone without permission it will be confiscated and you will be asked to come and collect it.
  • MP3 Players, iPads and Games Consoles are not permitted in school under any circumstances. These items will be confiscated and you will be asked to come and collect them.

Students should NOT bring their own footballs or sports equipment into school. Footballs and sports equipment are provided for use at break and lunch times.
