All our children wear school uniform which is simply a navy blue sweatshirt with a school logo and grey skirt or trousers. They also have P.E. kit in a bag and aprons for cooking and painting.

The Governors expect that every child joining the school will wear school uniform as it is both economical and ensures that no child feels out of place. This is simply a navy sweatshirt with school logo, which can be bought from school, grey skirt or trousers, grey or white socks and black or blue school shoes. During the summer children may wear sandals provided they do up securely but heavy boots, shoes with raised heels and trainers should not be worn for school. Many children wear short sleeved white polo shirts under their sweatshirts and during the warmer months girls can wear blue gingham school dresses.
All school clothing must be clearly marked so that lost clothes can be returned. It is a very good idea to sew in names as written marking comes off in the first wash.

School sweatshirt with logo (Navy blue) available
from the school office.
Grey or dark blue skirt, trousers or shorts.
Plain white, grey or blue blouse or shirt
White or grey socks.
Ordinary black, brown or blue school shoes (No
trainers, heavy boots or raised heels)

For half of each term we take around sixty of the older children to Bryanston School pool for swimming lessons which means that those children will need a costume, towel and swimming hat.
For P.E. children need a plain white tee-shirt, plain shorts and plimsolls, all marked and kept in a marked bag. Baggy, flapping shorts or tee-shirts which can catch on equipment are not suitable. For safety children with long hair must have something to tie it back. Jogging trousers are useful for the colder weather and the older children may wear trainers for P.E. on the field as they provide protection from the wet grass.

Thus, Shillingstone has eight Foundation Governors (at least two of whom must be parents with children currently attending this school), and in addition one Parent Governor (elected by the parents), one Teacher Governor (elected by the teaching staff), one Staff Governor (elected by the non-teaching staff), one Governor appointed by Dorset County Council as the CSA, and one Co-opted Governor (chosen by the rest of the Governors). The Headteacher is an ex-officio Governor.

The full governing body is required to meet once a term, to publish an annual report which goes to all parents, and to hold an annual meeting for the parents.
Up to about 20 years ago school governing bodies, comprising half a dozen worthy, and usually quite elderly local people, met termly for half an hour or so to nod through the Head’s report… Over the years since then the workload has increased considerably for all governing bodies and nowadays a committee structure helps to spread this work and streamline the task.
