We will expect all children to follow school expectations for uniform (as set out below) and to wear PE clothes on the two days your child’s class has PE.
There is no requirement to purchase school items with logos- (although that would be preferred if possible) but it is important that the recommended uniform is worn with a sense of pride by all children.
The uniform is designed to be low cost, practical and attractive. Uniform is available to purchase from School Shop Direct – you can pop into their shop in Harlescott, or alternatively place your order online and have everything delivered free to school for you to collect.
The uniform bank in our school has good quality secondhand uniform which has been donated by other parents or unclaimed lost property. This is available to all families.
Children smartly dressed for school in uniform allows all children to gain a sense of equality, and identity and adhering to the uniform policy prepares children for the transition to feeder schools such as Thomas Adams School.

Hair & Make-up
If your child has hair that is shoulder length or longer, for safety reasons we recommend that it is tied up.
No ornate colourful hair accessories to be used, for safety reasons we recommend small, plain hair accessories.
Hairstyles such as Mohican cuts and use of brightly coloured hair dye are not permitted. Boys should not have a hair cut lower than Grade 2.
Decorative items such as nail varnish and make-up should not be worn.
The wearing of jewellery by pupils at our school is strongly discouraged on Health and safety grounds and is a deterrent to potential theft, damage and loss. Items of jewellery are worn at the owner’s risk and the school will not be held responsible for the actions of third parties.
For Health and safety reasons only plain silver/gold stud earrings should be worn as there is a greater risk of injury with larger and dangly earrings.
If a pupil wishes to wear a wristband of any sort, only one to be worn at any one time.
During PE lessons all personal effects should be removed by pupil. Staff will give a verbal reminder to pupils. If they cannot be removed (eg recently pierced ears with studs), staff have a duty of care to ensure that pupils are able to participate without unnecessarily endangering themselves or those working around them. Please provide tape if ear piercings cannot be removed.
Please label everything as we regularly have a mountain of lost property with no names that can’t be returned.
Thank you for your support.
