School Uniform POLICY
We are proud of our school uniform and the way our children look. We ask all parents/carers to ensure that their children are dressed in the correct clothes and shoes, have PE kit in school and follow the guidelines on hair and jewellery. If a pupil does not wear the required uniform a member of staff will contact you or a reminder letter will be sent home to parents/carers. PE kit letters will be sent home by the class teacher if the correct kit is not worn.
Our school colour is navy blue. We no longer sell uniform at school. However, uniform can be purchased through Tesco Direct from the following link https://www.tesco.com/direct/earlsmead-primary-school/13582.school?t=1530090137262. Please ensure all items of clothing, including coats, are clearly marked with your child’s name.
Hair styles should be kept simple and appropriate for school. It is sensible for girls/boys with long hair to have it tied back with only blue, black and white accessories. Hair styles that are ‘razored’ or ‘tram line’ are not appropriate. Children are not permitted to come into school with dyed hair. If your child covers his/her hair for religious reasons the covering must be either black, blue or white.
Only the following items of jewellery can be worn in school:
Girls- A watch, plain gold or silver stud earrings in pierced ears only
Boys- A watch, one small plain gold or silver earring in pierced ear only
If a child wears any earrings, apart from studs, they will be asked to remove them. Please think carefully about this if your child asks to have their ears pierced. The school cannot accept responsibility for any jewellery that may be lost. Children are not allowed to wear any earrings during PE lessons for health and safety reasons; please can you ensure these are removed prior to the day.
In addition, no body piercings, tattoos (temporary or permanent), nail varnish or make-up is to be worn in school.
An overall is desirable to provide protection for children working with paint or craft materials. An old shirt from a parent is ideal and can be kept in class or in their PE bag.
