All items of clothing should be marked with the child’s name
We encourage children to take a pride in their appearance, and it is expected that they will all wear school uniform. Parents’ co-operation concerning this is sought and appreciated.
School Colours Royal blue and grey
Winter: Grey trousers, royal blue school sweatshirt and white polo neck shirt
Summer: As above or grey tailored shorts
Winter: Grey skirt or pinafore dress or school grey tailored trousers , school sweatshirt or cardigan and white polo neck shirt
Summer: As above, or royal blue and white checked or striped dress optional.
Your child will need a pair of sensible dark coloured, low heeled shoes for outdoor wear. It is essential that children have a change of footwear for indoor use. Parents may choose to send a second pair of shoes or plimsolls.
Physical Education and Games
It is essential for all children to change for physical education. Both boys and girls require a blue school T-shirt, royal blue shorts and plimsolls This uniform for P.E. may be purchased from the school shop.
Swimming – Children will need a costume, swimming hat and a towel for swimming lessons.
Please write your child’s name on his/her swimming hat with a water-proof marker. This is very helpful for the swimming teacher. The wearing of goggles is only permitted after a signed ‘Goggle’ letter has been received by school. Please see Sue in the office for a permission letter.
Girls may wear plain slides and ribbons
In the interests of safety and security no jewellery, apart from wrist watches and `studs’ for pierced ears, is allowed in school. Wrist watches must be removed for physical education.
Governors do not consider it appropriate to wear earrings with uniform and they strongly discourage pupils from wearing them in school. Studs may be worn for the first few weeks after ears have been pierced, although it is essential that these are either removed by the child, or covered with a plaster for P.E., games. Plasters to cover `studs’ must be provided by the family and are not available from the school for this purpose. Studs must be removed for swimming. The teaching staff are not allowed to remove `studs’ from the children’s ears or replace them after the lesson.
The above requirement follows recommendations of the Education Department of the Oxfordshire County Council and is for the well-being and safety of all children.
