What a child wears to school reflects his/her attitude to learning. It portrays the school's ethos and shared positive values. We have a very simple uniform that the pupils must wear to school. This is a maroon sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece, a yellow polo shirt and grey or black trousers or skirt and black school shoes.
School uniform including sweatshirts, fleeces, polo shirts and T-shirts can be purchased from the school office at the end of the school year in readiness for September. Please contact the school office for details of opening times.
Alternatively they can be purchased from shops in the Ashton and Hyde area. Book Bags and PE Bags are available from the school office. School maintain a small collection of new or nearly new footwear that children will be provided with in the event of need.
PE / Games Kit
It is important for pupils to wear correct clothing for physical activities.
For PE children require a round necked T-shirt in the house colours (red for Rooks, yellow for Crows, green for Magpies and blue for Jackdaws), plain black shorts and pumps or trainers. For games activities outside children need a T-shirt and shorts, trainers/boots; shin pads for football and hockey. Track suits or sweatshirts may be worn for games during the winter months. All clothing should be clearly labelled. Jewellery must not be worn for sporting activities and long hair should be tied back.
Jewellery / Other Adornment
On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are simple ear-ring studs in pierced ears and wristwatches.Small objects of religious significance, such as a Sikh bracelet should be removed for PE. If this is not possible, we ask that parents give permission in writing with an acceptance of responsibility for any injury sustained as a result of wearing such objects.
Please note that staff are not allowed to remove or look after jewellery for children. The safest place is at home.
Naming all items of clothing reduces the risk! Please name items of children's clothing. We do keep lost property for a reasonable period of time, but it is often difficult to identify items that are not labelled. If your child has lost something then please check in their classroom first, then check in the lost property box in the entrance. Displays of lost property are made before the end of each school year and if it is not claimed it is then sold or given away to charities.
