It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to wear their shirts tucked into their skirts or trousers and to take a pride in their personal appearance. Some items of uniform can be bought from school, whilst others are easily available, at very competitive prices, at local shops including supermarkets.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:

Jewellery, Hair Ornaments, Make-up and Nail Varnish:-
For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery (including any earrings). Children in KS2 may wear a small wristwatch. Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.
Hair longer than shoulder length must be tied back at all times while at school. Hair bands, ribbons/small bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be plain and either blue or black. Hair bands should not have attachments – for example flowers.
Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of school hours function, for example a school disco. Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.
Children are not permitted to bring mobile phones into school. We do however recognise that there may be exceptional circumstances where this may be needed. If you believe your child has to bring a phone into school permission should be sought by completing a form which can be obtained from your child’s class teacher or from the office. Mobile phones must then be handed into the school office for safe keeping during the school day.
