The governors request that children wear clothes in the agreed school colours i.e. - for boys: white or blue polo shirts, blue sweatshirts, grey trousers or shorts and for girls: white or blue polo shirts, grey skirt or grey trousers, blue cardigans/sweatshirts or blue & white cotton dresses. No leggings are to be worn under skirts or dresses. Please make sure that children with long hair have it tied up for school.
Parents may purchase these articles from Top Form in the Stow shopping centre or Academy Direct in the Harvey Centre who stock the whole range of our school clothing with the embroidered school badge. Asda and Tesco also stock grey trousers, white tops and blue cardigans/sweatshirts.
Although parents of Nursery are welcome to send their children in uniform we suggest that comfortable clothing such as jogging bottoms and easy to put on tops may be better for Nursery age children.
Hairstyles (boys and girls) should be simple and of the child’s natural colour. Fashion /extreme styles/shaven heads are not acceptable. No ‘tram lines’ or heads shaved too severely. Please make sure that children with long hair have it tied up for school. Pupils should not wear nail varnish or make up. Children may wear a pair of stud earrings and a watch. No other jewellery is allowed and all jewellery must be removed for PE.
We request that parents provide appropriate kit for PE lessons Gymnastics apparatus lessons: Shorts and T-shirts.
We prefer children to work barefoot or in plimsolls.
Outdoor games: Shorts and T-shirts in summer with a sweatshirt or similar in winter, trainers or plimsolls. Blue tracksuits or jogging bottoms can be worn in winter. Colours: We encourage parents to buy the specially printed school T-shirts or sweatshirts and royal blue shorts. Long hair should be tied back and jewellery should not be worn.
