Uniform

We encourage our children to take pride in their appearance, because this also leads to them taking pride in their school and in their learning. We expect all pupils to follow our uniform and dress code.

Have a look at the gallery below to see the children wearing our uniform. There is also a helpful list of the uniform items, which are available from Essex Embroidery and Print, Unit 3 Dammerwick Farm, Marsh Road, CM0 8NB. Phone number 01621 786 686.

All children are expected to have the correct kit for P.E. This is a school tee-shirt with printed school badge, navy blue shorts and black plimsolls. Children may bring in trainers to wear during outdoor games. Lightweight training shoes may be worn in the hall as long as they are not muddy on the bottoms. Navy blue jogging bottoms and school sweatshirt or navy blue tracksuit are required for outdoor games when it is cold.

P.E. kit for use each week should be brought into school on a Monday and kept hanging on the child’s peg until Friday when it can go home.

Boys: Swimming trunks. Cut-downs or long shorts are not allowed.

Girls: One piece swimsuit.

All children must wear a swimming hat.

For swimming lessons children will need a large towel and a waterproof bag.

Jewellery

The wearing of jewellery is not encouraged in school.  Children may wear a cross and chain or similar religious symbol, but this must be worn under the school uniform.  Children who have pierced ears may wear small studs or sleepers only and these must be removed for P.E. and swimming lessons. Small watches may be worn.

 Hair

Long hair should be tied back.  Hairstyles with designs cut into them, or which are excessively gelled or spiked are not appropriate for school.
