We believe that children who take care and pride in the way they look also take pride in their work. The school encourages all pupils to identify with the school dress code as this engenders a sense of belonging. We ask for parental co-operation in ensuring that pupils are suitably dressed, and that high standards regarding school uniform will continue.
School uniform consists of :
◦Grey/Black trousers, skirts or pinafore dress
◦Pale blue blouses and shirts
◦Pale blue polo t-shirts
◦Royal Blue sweatshirts or cardigans
◦In summer children may wear blue and white candy stripe or gingham dresses or grey tailored shorts
◦Sensible shoes preferably black (NO trainers)
For Physical Education your child will need:
◦Navy blue shorts
◦White T shirts preferably with school logo
◦Royal blue leotard (optional)
◦Track suit for winter games sessions
Your child will also need:
◦An art overall for painting. We suggest an old shirt cut to size and correctly labelled
◦P.E. bag (a drawstring bag is most easily accommodated in school)
◦A book bag - no larger than 37cm (L), 30 cm (H) and 10cm (W)
◦Descant recorder in year 3 (sold in the school office)
Stationery is provided, therefore it is not necessary to provide your child with their own pencil case
All other items can be purchased from Skoolkit in Fareham www.skoolkit.co.uk
No jewellery, apart from watches and sleepers or studs in pierced ears only, should be worn to school. Jewellery should be removed for all physical education activities and the child must take responsibility for their possessions. We appreciate that this may be difficult for some children and so we recommend they leave earrings and watches at home on P.E. days.
In the case of newly pierced ears, taping may be considered for a limited period.
Please note make up and nail varnish is not permitted.
Additional items your child may wish to bring to school:
◦Sun hat and protection cream in the summer.
Occasionally the children may be asked by their teacher to bring items to school to support classroom work (we thank you for your support). Please do not send valuable irreplaceable objects. Although we do our best to safeguard children's personal belongings, the school is unable to take responsibility for them and we would therefore be grateful if all items of uniform could be clearly labelled with your child's name and class if possible.
