School Uniform

A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all members of the school community at all times and the uniform policy for pupils plays a key part in helping us to achieve this. We are proud of our school uniform and encourage children to also feel proud of belonging to Sholden Church of England Primary School. We positively encourage our children to take responsibility for their personal appearance.

As such we believe that a school uniform:

  •  Promotes a sense of pride in the school. 
  •  Engenders a feeling of community and belonging. 
  •  Is practical, simple and smart. 
  •  Identifies the children with the school. 
  •  Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.

It is our school policy that all pupils must wear:

  • Grey or black trousers/skirt/pinafore/smart school shorts
  • Black shoes (N.B. no boots, trainers or sandals)
  • Dark socks (boys) white socks/grey black tights (girls)
  • White polo shirt or white shirt
  • School logo sweatshirt or cardigan

Optional:

Girls may wear a blue and white gingham dress in the summer.
A school logo fleece is available to wear as a jacket.

P.E. Kit

Plimsolls and/or trainers.
House T-shirt. (Yellow, Red, Blue, Green)

Jewellery

We would prefer pupils not to wear any jewellery except watches. If pupils need to wear earrings to school they should be studs. When a child is participating in P.E. they should either be removed or taped up.

Hair

We expect all children to have a suitable haircut for primary school, this means that haircuts must not have patterns, numbers or pictures shaved into the side of the head. Where a child has long hair we expect it to be tied back with a simple plain hair band- not a head scarf- (unless for religious reasons.)

Make up and Cosmetics

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.

Finally, every year we end up with mountains of lost property so please ensure that your child’s clothes are all labelled.
