Our uniform reflects the sense both of community and of diversity that the school takes pride in and, although we want children to feel relaxed and comfortable as they learn, we also want to enable children to identify with, and have pride in their school.
School uniform is important in helping achieve this. Uniform items that are emblazoned with our school logo are available to purchase please ask at the reception for an order form. Children in the nursery should be sensibly dressed in easy to manage clothes. Uniform is compulsory for all children from Reception to Year 6.
You can purchase our uniform items from Logo to Go which is based within Charles Dickens hardware store in Hartlepool.

SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
To help raise standards, and in collaboration with our behaviour policy, we will be applying the uniform policy more rigorously from September 2015. We will also be seeking to reward classes and individual pupils who regularly display excellent standards of uniform.
We have not amended the uniform requirements but we will be expecting children to have shirts and polo shirts tucked in. Where there are extenuating circumstances that prevent your child from wearing the correct uniform, please ensure that you contact school (phone/email/hand written note) in order to inform the class teacher. Sanctions will be in place for KS2 pupils (Y3 –Y6) who fail to meet the required standards of uniform. This is in line with DfE guidance, 2013, which states “Teachers can discipline pupils for breaching the school’s rules on appearance or uniform”.
Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Johnson with any queries

Suitable footwear is essential – trainers for outside and bare feet for indoors. In the winter months, black jogging bottoms and fleece tops may also be worn for outdoor PE. Hair should be tied back and ear studs removed.
PLEASE NOTE: If your child fails to bring their PE kit to school they will be given alternative PE kit to wear from the school store cupboard.
ALL CLOTHES ARE TO BE MARKED CLEARLY WITH THE CHILD’S NAME.
As part of the school’s dress code, the wearing of jewellery is restricted to a wristwatch and small ear studs for both safety and security reasons. Friendship bands are classed as bracelets and therefore cannot be worn for school.
ALL JEWELLERY MUST BE REMOVED FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION!
Children will be unable to take part in PE lessons whilst wearing jewellery, and they will therefore not be fulfilling the legal requirements of the National Curriculum.
Please note – covering earrings with tape or plasters is not allowed.
Parents can support the school in ensuring children’s safety by:-
(a) removing jewellery before coming to school on the days PE is timetabled
(b) ensuring that children are able to remove jewellery themselves.
NB. As piercings take at least 6 weeks to heal, please have your children’s ears pierced ONLY at the beginning of the school summer holiday.
NB. NO MAKE UP OR NAIL VARNISH
