School Uniform

We believe that school uniform is very important and it is very gratifying that our parents support this policy. We feel that it helps to prevent the problems associated with children wearing fashionable, expensive clothes, and it also gives children a shared sense of identity and belonging to our school and community.

We ask that all children, please, wear school uniform as follows:-

The school has a uniform based on combinations of blue, black, grey and white.  Parents and Carers are requested to ensure that, as far as possible, children’s dress conforms to the suggestions below.  All items are available from several stores in Norwich.  School sweatshirts are available online.

Grey / Black skirt / pinafore dress or tailored trousers / tailored shorts

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 require plimsolls in a shoe bag, and Years 3 – 6 require trainers for outside use.  The same footwear should not be used inside and out.

Children who are keen on playing football on the field will need to change into trainers.

PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON ALL POSSESSIONS

To help overcome the problem of lost property ALL CLOTHING, including footwear, should be clearly marked with your child’s name. There is a Lost Property ‘Treasure Chest’ – please ask at the Office.

Jewellery

To avoid the risk of accidents and the possibility of loss or damage, jewellery should not be worn. The only exception to this is for children with pierced ears who may wear a small single stud (no hoop earrings) in each ear, provided they are removed for PE lessons. If earrings cannot be removed please provide a plaster for them to be covered up during PE Lessons.  The school is unable to accept responsibility for any accidents involving studs or other jewellery. Make up, including painted finger or toenails, should not be worn.
