Uniform

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to wear their shirts tucked into their skirts or trousers and to take a pride in their personal appearance.

Most uniform can be bought from local high street stores although we do expect you to purchase the Deansfield grey jumper or cardigan from the School Reception.

Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:
• promotes a sense of pride in our school;
• helps to create a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
• identifies the children with the school;
• supports our commitment to inclusion;
• prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting in class;
• is practical, smart and designed with health and safety in mind;
• is considered good value for money by most parents.

The Role of Parents
We seek parents support to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and PE kit, and that it is clean, in good repair with their child’s name written on all items. If a parent has diff of staff to discuss the issues.
Children who arrive at school wearing a non-uniform jumper or cardigan may be loaned an appropriate clean second hand item for the day.
