School Uniform

School Uniform

We believe that the school uniform plays an important role in establishing the ethos of our schools and that our uniform policy benefits the school in a number of ways:

 
  • It encourages children to identify with the school and nurtures the notion of community
  • It protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • It supports discipline and good behaviour and ensures the health and safety of students
  • It instills a sense of pride in the school
  • It promotes more effective teaching & learning

All children must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school.  Uniform will usually be worn on occasions when children are representing the school, including school visits.

Parents and carers are asked to co-operate fully by providing the uniform and ensuring children wear it correctly to and from school, and at other times as required.  Some items are only obtainable from the school’s suppliers.

The school offers the full range of uniform, PE Kit and accessories which can be purchased from our uniform supplier Sussex Uniforms.

Plain blue shorts
Plain white socks
Plimsolls or trainers with light coloured/non marking soles (with elasticated fronts or Velcro for those unable to manage their own laces)
Sweatshirts and joggers may be worn for outdoor PE lessons in Winter**

Personal Appearance
Shoulder length hair should, for safety and hygiene reasons, be tied back from the face. Hair accessories should be plain in style and colour. Hair gel, mousse, etc. should not be worn to school. No jewellery should be worn to school. If children have pierced ears only plain metal studs should be worn, no earrings of any other kind are allowed. Studs must be removed during all PE lessons, children are expected to remove their own earrings and will be responsible for them. It is preferable not to wear earrings on PE days. 
No nail varnish should be worn. 

Valuables
Children should not bring any valuables such as electronic games or mobile phones into school. The school will not take responsibility for any items brought into school, unless by prior agreement. 


It is important nonetheless when defining our uniform policy that this does not provide a barrier to inclusivity. Consequently religious headwear may be worn (for religious purposes only) but will be required to be in line with the wider school uniform.
