School book bag is required for children up to Year 5 and children are provided with their first one as a gift from School Friends’ Club.
Children in years 5 and 6 can bring a small bag instead of a book bag if they take responsibility for ensuring all items are in class as needed.
The only jewellery allowed is a sensible wrist-watch (no Apple watches etc) and one/pair of small, plain, gold or silver stud earrings which have to be removed for PE. If children are having ears pierced, please only do this in summer holidays as children cannot take part in PE with earrings in and we are unable to cover with tape.
Nail polish should not be worn for school and children should not have transfer tattoos anywhere visible during school time. We do make an exception for this in the days immediately after school discos as these are usually near holidays.
Hairstyles should be sensible and appropriate for school with natural hair colour and no tramlines or patterns. (Please save any unusual styles for summer holidays) All long hair needs to be tied back. Plain headbands can be worn, however, other fashion accessories such as large bows, braids etc should not be worn.
Uniform with logos can be bought from Grays Schoolwear (Blackburn), Whittakers or Abbey Street . Items such as polo shirts and jumpers/cardigans without the school logo and he plain black or grey pants/shorts can also be bought in most local supermarkets.
We have a stock of 'new to you' items of uniform in the entrance to school and parents are welcome to take items from the cabinet as needed. If your child grows out of any uniform and it is still in good condition, we would be most grateful if you could send it into school.
