Uniform Policy

It is an expectation that children who attend the school will wear the school uniform. This sets a standard of appearance of which both parents and the school can be proud. The uniform comprises of:

 

  • Bright red sweatshirt, jumper, cardigan or fleece (preferably with school logo)
  • Grey trousers (boys) white shirt
  • Grey skirts/dresses (girls) white blouse or shirt
  • Summer dresses - red stripe or check
  • Summer sport shirt - red or white
  • Sensible shoes – plain black trainers are acceptable as are low heeled plain black boots for girls. No fashion trainers, strappy sandals or high heels

 

All items of uniform can be purchased from our suppliers 'Hole in the Wall', Hinckley or online from tesco.com/ues.

 

  • No jewellery should be worn apart from watches and stud earrings, which children should be able to remove themselves for PE, games and swimming lessons. If your child has their ears pierced during term-time, and are unable to remove the earrings, they will have to miss P.E. and swimming until they can be taken out.
  • Make-up and nail varnish are not permitted.
  • Children will need to have their games and PE kits in school throughout the week.
  • For indoor PE periods children need shorts and a short sleeved T shirt, preferably close-fitting and not loose or baggy. Trainers are not allowed on safety grounds and children work in bare feet or plimsolls.
  • For outdoor sessions children should have a short sleeved T shirt, shorts and a change of shoes e.g. plimsolls, suitable trainers, football boots. A warm track suit or top is advisable during the colder weather.
  • When playing football, children should wear shin pads.

 

Children have a weekly swimming session in the school pool. They must have a swimming cap as part of their swimming kit.

 

Swimming goggles

 

Children are not permitted to wear goggles in the school pool. The school closely follows County Council advice which states that little medical benefit accrues from the use of goggles and that:


  • Goggles of the cheaper variety are composed of brittle plastic, glass or acrylic substance and in the event of a collision may shatter, resulting in serious injury.
  • It is difficult to maintain accurately fitting eye protection, therefore contact with water in the pool is inevitable.
  • Children using goggles do not always understand the correct way of putting them on and taking them off. Cold, wet slippery fingers can lead to a catapult effect resulting in eye damage.
 

Please ensure that all items of uniform, PE and swimming kits are clearly labelled with your child's name.
