The Department for Education strongly encourages schools to have a
school uniform. This is to instil pride, support positive behaviour, encourage
identity with, and support for, the school ethos as well as ensuring that
pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome and part of the whole school.
It also helps to protect children from social pressures of dressing in a
certain way, it nurtures cohesion and promotes good relationships between the
whole school community with different groups of children and, above all, it
fosters effective teaching and learning.
At Cottingley Village Primary
School we believe that wearing a school uniform provides children with an
identity and gives them a sense of belonging and pride in the organisation
where they learn. Uniform is practical and smart. It reinforces a positive work
ethic and is supportive in reducing expenditure for our families.
All children wear the correct school uniform
each day to school.
Children are proud to wear their uniform and
belong to the school.
Our families share the school’s expectations
with regard to uniform.
It is expected that all children wear school
uniform every day to school, including appropriate footwear as directed by the
school (pumps indoors and sensible outdoor footwear outside).
The school website and school planner provides
parents/carers with full details of school uniform.
If a child does not wear the correct uniform
then parent/carers will be contacted and made aware of this.
All parents/carers are asked to clearly label
every item of school clothing with their child’s name, including all footwear
and school reading/PE bag.
All children are responsible for taking care of
their own items of clothing.
Lost property is located in the small hall. Each
term this is emptied and families given an opportunity to collect lost items
before sending any remaining items to the clothing bank.
If there is a specific reason why a child cannot
wear aspects of school uniform or requires special dispensation e.g. health or
religious grounds the Governing Body will sympathetically consider a request
from the parent/carer.

No sandals, closed toed shoes only.

Head dresses must be either white or blue to

As an important element of the curriculum the children in
Year 5 take part in swimming lessons at Bingley Swimming Pool. Children must
bring the appropriate swimwear when it is their allocated time to take part in
these lessons. No bikinis.
The school will be considerate and make enquiries with
either the child or parent if a child does not adhere to the uniform
expectations. Children will not be made to feel uncomfortable or discriminated
against. However, the school expects all families to provide their children
with the correct uniform and as such will give them a specific amount of time
to comply with this. If there is a particular issue the school is more than
willing to work with the family to resolve or support them.
