Reception & Nursery Classes

From September 2016 ALL children in reception and nursery are required to bring waterproof clothing and wellies which are to be left in school on their pegs. This is because reception and nursery children often visit the local woodland areas as part of their learning.

PE

From September 2016 ALL children will come to school wearing their PE kit on the days that they have PE.  Children will stay in their PE kit for the full day. This change has been put into place to reduce the time lost from PE lessons getting changed.

Black slip-on pumps/ plain black trainers (no branded or coloured trainers)

House polo shirt (blue/red/green/yellow) NO football/branded shirts

Plain black jogging bottoms with elasticated cuff

Year Groups who go Swimming

Swimming trunks, swimsuit or swimming costume

Swimming cap

Towel & waterproof bag

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our academy.  Pupils are allowed to wear a watch, one earring per lobe – small stud only. Pupils are not permitted to wear necklaces (other than for faith reasons) and bracelets / bands or any kind. Children will be asked to remove watches/jewellery during PE or games. Please Note: The academy will be unable to take any responsibility for any jewellery that is lost.

Haircuts

We recommend that hair should be neat and tidy and worn with no extremes of style or colour that could serve as a distraction to other children. Any style or colour deemed inappropriate by the school will first result in a discussion with Principal, who will attempt to find reconciliation, but whose word is final subject to appeal processes.  Children should not wear colourful, unnecessary and distracting hair adornments.

For health and safety reasons, long hair should always be tied back for PE.

Footwear

All pupils must wear formal, plain black shoes. Pupils should not wear shoes that are decorative (e.g. diamantes) have coloured / reflective strips or logos, backless sandals or ‘leisure’ shoes (we encourage non-branded trainers to promote equality between children).  The academy wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear footwear that is not suitable for the academy environment, i.e high heels, backless shoes, sandals, platform shoes, or similar. It is essential that children have a change of footwear for PE.

Make up and Cosmetics (including nail varnish)

Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our academy uniform. The academy does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Principal has given permission.

PE Kit

The correct PE kit must be brought to every PE lesson. If a pupil is excused from a PE lesson they are still required to bring their PE kit in order to participate in lessons, for example as an umpire. If pupils do not have the correct PE kit they will be required to borrow a PE kit in order to take part in planned activities.
