All Y2 and junior children (Y3 - Y6) wear black indoor schools, which need to be different from the footwear they wear to and from school, and at break times. 

This allows children to wear suitable shoes for the weather to and from school and at playtime. This also allows the children to use our outdoor learning areas throughout the year.

** Children must wear black school shoes to and from school, and when on trips.

  • Shoes must be fully covered and ‘sensible’ shoes for a child to run in – in wet weather, open shoes will get very wet.
  • We will allow black trainers for those that prefer them and where this would be more sensible (ie some children play football at break times). However, it may be more comfortable and better for foot support to have a shoe that has a good grip and is also suitable for play. Black trainers must be completely black – no coloured/white logos or coloured laces – the more they look like a shoe, the better.
  • Wellington boots may be worn to school instead of shoes when necessary (ie in the snow) and children will wear the same when on the playground.

During the winter months it is also helpful to provide your child with a spare pair of socks to be kept at school in case of bad weather.

Other 'presentation' requirements (all children):

All long hair (shoulder length or longer, both boys and girls) should be tied back using appropriate plain and small accessories (eg hair bands or scrunchies, which should be in school colours - blue/green or black/brown). This is to reduce the possibility of hair becoming caught in something and causing injury, and also to reduce the spread of head lice.

Hairstyles must be plain, with no dyed or shaved patterns. Hair gel may be used to keep hair tidy, but not for fashion styling as this is inappropriate.

Nail varnish must not be worn in school.

We prefer pupils not to wear earrings. If they are worn, there must be a maximum of one small plain gold or silver ear stud per ear, in the lobe (not glass/diamond-effect/emblems, etc.) Children must remove their earrings themselves for PE and swimming. Hooped earrings are not allowed and no other piercings are permitted. The only other jewellery permitted is that worn for religious or medical reasons (which requires a letter of explanation), and a named wristwatch. The school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to jewellery.
