We are a Uniform School. We believe a uniform looks smart, wears well and contributes to a feeling of belonging to the school.
The Governors have expressed a wish that suitable clothing be worn to school equal to the image we wish the school to convey. So that competition in wearing 'Designer Clothes' and Trainers does not enter this school, the Governors feel that having a school uniform will assist parents financially and exclude arguments at home as to what children wish to wear themselves.
Our uniform consists of:-
Boys & Girls
ROYAL BLUE SWEATSHIRTS OR CARDIGAN
BLACK SENSIBLE SHOES
STRIPED/CHEQUED SUMMER DRESSES
ALL THE PRICED ITEMS OF CLOTHING MAY BE PURCHASED FROM LINCOLN UNIFORM DIRECT OR TESCO ONLINE. Parents are also able to purchase items from other outlets such as supermarkets.
We agree to girls wearing shorts or trousers so long as they follow the criteria stated for the boys.
Jeans trousers are not to be worn to school and, only in extenuating circumstances are trainer shoes allowed for everyday wear.
Clothing For PE, Games, Swimming Art And Craft
In the interests of hygiene we do ask you to provide a change of clothing for these activities.
PE Indoors Plain white T Shirt (short Sleeves), dark shorts, plimsolls and a bag to keep them in. Sports bags can be bought from school.
PE Outdoors As above but trainers can be worn.
(If the weather is cold, children are allowed to wear tracksuits. Football boots may be worn when appropriate, but are not required).
Swimming We require all children with long hair to tie it back for safety reasons. We also ask you for reasons of safety to remove any jewellery your child may be wearing, especially watches and bracelets. If possible girls should remove earrings with back studs because if they should fall out the pin could be dangerous. Knee length trunks are not advised.
Art In order to protect children's clothing when painting or involved in craftwork, pottery etc. an old shirt of Dad's, worn backwards makes an ideal painting apron.
Jewellery Necklaces, bracelets or rings should not be worn in school. You will appreciate that this is largely for safety reasons. Similarly ears that are pierced should have studs in them while in school, rather than sleepers which carry a risk of catching. If you intend to have your child’s ears pierced, please plan to do this close to a holiday to ensure that they can be removed for PE lessons.
