School Uniform

It is school policy that we encourage the children to wear a uniform to help create a sense of community and pride in the school.

 

Parents can currently purchase items from three different supplier options. You may buy a selection of items from either supplier as all of the items have been approved by school.

 

Option 1. Via a local supplier (based in Elmstead Market) "Class Clobber" . There are items of uniform available on their website  www.classclobber.co.uk . This company has been selected as a).They are local and can deliver items directly to school quickly b) Each item of uniform can have your child's name (we suggest surname) stitched into the garment you are buying . This is not only a time saver for parents but also improves the chances of an item getting back to its original owner. 

 

Option 2.Via 'shopkeepeasy.com' (which has replaced the Tesco uniform option as Tesco have ceased online uniform services). This is a new supplier. Excitingly this supplier offers items of uniform which include ECO uniform options for the first time.In an ECO item any polyester has been made using 100% recycled plastic bottles. This company offer delivery to home for a charge of £2.40 per order.There is no extra commission charged by school on this shop's uniform items.This will keep cost to parents as low as possible whilst also offering an ECO version of items where possible. The website address you need is:

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school (only small studs allowed and must be removed for PE). If your child wishes to have pierced ears we recommend ear piercings are done right at the beginning of the summer holidays so that ears have time to heal and earrings are able to be removed for P.E (independently by the child) from September return to school. Thank you.

 

Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform. The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Head has given permission.Hair gel is not permitted in school please.
