We believe that our school uniform gives a real sense of ‘belonging’ to the school and should be worn with pride. School uniform does make a considerable positive contribution towards a school ethos and image. In addition it does make dressing for school far simpler. We would hope that parents will share this sentiment with us and take the same pride in seeing their children wearing our uniform. Consequently the wearing of our school uniform is strongly encouraged. Sweatshirt, polo shirts and fleeces bearing the school logo can be purchased through school.

Children should come to school suitably and appropriately dressed.
The school will not accept the wearing of: jewellery, jeans, tracksuits, shellsuits, sportswear, ski pants, leggings etc inappropriately styled or coloured items. This is in common with other schools in the Reddish Area and is part of a policy agreed between them.
It is advisable that long hair be tied back for general safety reasons.
P.E. and Games
P.E., Games and Swimming are lessons in the National Curriculum. They are not optional and all children will take part other than for medical reasons. For practical health and safety reasons, children need a change of clothing for these lessons.
P.E.: for hygiene reasons children should change for P.E. lessons. For indoors, pumps, shorts or gym shirt and top or leotard. Training shoes should not be worn for indoor P.E. lessons. For outdoors, as above, but tracksuit or warmer top if needed. Training shoes may be worn for outdoor P.E. lessons. Football boots will be needed for football on the grass for after school football practices.
Swimming: towel and: Girls should wear a one piece costume and hat if hair is long
Boys should wear trunks, not shorts
For swimming and P.E. lessons, hair that is long enough must be tied back safely.
If children forget their kits they will either:
wear alternative clothing provided by school (if available)
do the lesson in their underclothes (younger children)
not do the lesson
Appropriate bags should be used to keep P.E. kits in. Large bags are a hazard and are generally unnecessary and are discouraged.
Parents are asked to clearly mark all items of clothing with the child’s name: teachers cannot be held responsible for finding lost articles of clothing especially if they are not marked. Lost articles of clothing will be held in school for one term in the lost property boxes and then discarded.
When children are representing the school for any event they are expected to dress suitably for that occasion: normally the school provides the appropriate clothing.
