Our ambition is for school uniform to provide a sense of belonging and pride in being part of our school. Our children are expected to wear a representation of our school uniform, but to support all families in accessing good quality clothing, the need for these items to be branded is optional.
We urge that all school kit is clearly labelled. Thank you for your support with this.
See our full uniform policy here: Uniform Policy – September 2022
What should children wear for school?
Children are expected to wear:
- A Sleights Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School jumper or cardigan (blue) OR
- A non-branded blue cardigan or jumper
- A white polo shirt, blouse or shirt
- Grey or back trousers or skirts
- Blue gingham dresses, or grey/back shorts can also be worn. These should not display any sports logos.
- Smart black shoes should be worn. These should be low heeled. Fully black trainers could also be worn, as an alternative to shoes.
There are no seasonal limits on when these uniform items can or cannot be worn.
Where can I get uniform?
New, branded uniform can be purchased through the school office, using ParentPay.
In addition to new uniform, we do hold good quality, second hand items in our Sharing Shed too. The Sharing Shed is located on the playground, near the basketball hoop – help yourselves!
Non-branded items can be purchased from a range of local supermarkets and shops. The school does not have a preferred provider of these items.
Can my child wear jewellery or make up?
No jewellery or make up should be worn in school. This includes any earrings.
What about PE kit?
All children are expected to take part in PE each week and require a named change of clothes in school. Depending on the time of year, children may require an indoor, or outdoor kit.
What about kit for Forest Schools?
As children regularly engage in outdoor learning, they will require a separate kit for this. This kit should include old warm clothes and wellingtons (or old shoes), please. There is no preference for style, brand or kit. The most important thing is that the children are able to access the forest school safely.
