From September 2018 we are proud to introduce our new school uniform.
The school colours are:
- Royal Blue and white on top
- Black/dark grey on bottoms
We provide a uniform with our logo which we prefer children to wear. We do however permit plain sweatshirts/T-shirts or Polo Shirts as long as they are the correct colour.
Uniforms are as follows:
- Plain Royal Blue sweatshirt or cardigan
- Plain White or Royal Blue polo shirt or T-shirt
- Plain black/dark grey trousers, leggings, shorts, skirt, or pinafore dress.
- Summer dress in pale blue check
- Flat Black shoes or trainers that children can do up on their own
- One pair of stud earrings – no other piercings are acceptable.
- Pupils are not permitted to wear any other jewellery in the school grounds, due to health and safety risks.
- Extreme hairstyles, such as mohawks and carved and/or patterned or brightly coloured hair, are unacceptable.
- Pupils with hairstyles, such as cornrows, may be exempt from the rule above on racial or religious grounds, taking into consideration each individual person’s scenario.
- Pupils with long hair must tie their hair back so as not to impede their vision, cover their face or provide a health and safety risk.
- Bandana style headbands and flowers/bows or excessive hair accessories are not to be worn; however, plain hair clips or bands are acceptable.
- School does not consider make-up appropriate and pupils are not permitted to wear any such products.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with the pupil’s name.
Frequently asked questions:
- Where can I buy uniform?
Our school logo uniform can be purchased online from tesco direct www.tesco.com/direct/west-earlham-infant-and-nursery-school/15174.school
- What will happen if my child doesn’t come to school in the right uniform?
For children who come to school in inappropriate school uniform the school will operate a daily loan system. This will be handled sensitively.
- What about if my child has a religious reason that requires a specific dress code that is not covered in the school uniform policy?
Some religions and beliefs require their members to conform to a specific dress code. We do not discriminate against any religion or belief; however, the school must weigh the needs and rights of individual pupils against the cohesion and health and safety concerns of the entire school community. The school endeavours to allow most religious requirements to be met.
- What can I do if I am struggling to afford to buy uniform?
Following feedback from families we have amended our uniform policy to enable families to purchase school uniform without logos which we are aware can be cheaper. Families may be able to seek a grant from the Anguish Educational Foundation to support them in the purchase of school uniform. We will accept at school the vouchers that you would receive if successful, please see the office to redeem these if you are successful.
