Primary School

School Uniform

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school organised event outside school hours. We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy.

It is also important that school uniforms are not too expensive. Most of the items are available from high street shops. The only compulsory items that we ask you to purchase for each child is the school sweatshirt and/or school cardigan. Children in class 1 will also need to purchase a school book bag. All children should also have an embroidered school t-shirt for PE and games. Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school.
  • Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school.
  • Is practical and smart.
  • Identifies the children with the school.
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money.
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind.

 

Our uniform comprises of:

 

Boys:

 

  • Grey or black trousers
  • White polo top (embroidered with the school logo.)
  • Royal blue school sweatshirt or school cardigan (embroidered with the school logo.)
  • Grey, black, or white socks.
  • Black or brown shoes.

 

Girls:

 

  • Navy, grey or black skirt/pinafore dress or trousers.
  • Blue/white check dress for Summer.
  • White polo shirt. (embroidered with the school logo.)
  • Royal blue school sweatshirt or school cardigan (embroidered with the school logo.)
  • White socks or grey or blue tights.
  • Black or brown shoes - no heels or sandals.

Games/PE Kit.

 

All PE kit should be named and kept in school at all times.

  • PE kit should be in a drawstring bag.
  • Blue tracksuits may be used in cold weather.
  • Second half of Summer term swimwear and a towel needs to be provided.

 

Salcombe Embroiderers can provide the school logo for the school uniform.

 

As a school we take the health and safety of our pupils very seriously. So for this reason we do not allow jewellery, except for earring studs and watches which must be removed during PE and games.

For the same reason we do not allow sandals, platform soles or heels to be worn to school.
