IDLE C.E. (A) PRIMARY SCHOOL
SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending
school, or when participating in a school organised event outside normal school
hours. A complete list of the items needed for school uniform is identified below.
Aims and objectives
Our policy on school
uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
with health and safety in mind
sense of pride in the school;
sense of community and belonging towards the school;
children with the school;
children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in
feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
is regarded as
suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
to good educational practice
To ensure that these aims
are realised, the headteacher retains overall responsibility for assessing the
appropriateness of individual items of clothing and hair style.
health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our
school. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears and
watches. Watches should be a sensible size, should not distract either the
child or other pupils and should always be removed for PE.
reasons of safety and personal hygiene, long hair should be tied back with
simple hair accessories.
school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts, hair braids, nail
varnish, etc. as these could serve as a distraction to other children or lead
Stage 1 children should only use school issue PE or book bags at school.
Stage 2 children may bring their own PE bags, but due to limited space in the
cloakrooms, these should be of a ruck-sack type construction and small enough
to hang on the coat pegs.
we are unable to ensure the security of valuable items and to prevent
disruption within the school environment, children are not allowed to bring
mobile phones onto the school premises, without written authorization from the
head teacher. Should this be approved, all phones must be kept in the office
during the school day.
In addition to their PE footwear, all children are
required to wear a pair of black, flat-soled shoes inside school.
Staff code of dress
staff including students on placement are required to conform to a smart code
of dress. This should be conducive to the high standards expected of
The role of parents
ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school
uniform policy and this forms an important element of our Home School
Agreement. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school
correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the
responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct
uniform, that it is clean, in good repair and labeled with their child’s name.
to the uniform policy may only be considered through the usual Governor
channels. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith
communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds,
why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school
uniform, then the school will consider any such requests.
