School Uniform


School Uniform

A high standard of personal appearance is required of all children. The

St. Andrew’s School Governors expect children to wear uniform in school

and ask parents to fully support this expectation. The aim of our uniform

policy is to:

  • encourage pride in belonging to St. Andrew’s CE Primary School.
  • enable children to be comfortable, safe and secure
  • protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • encourage a sense of equality and cohesion
  • support teaching and learning

Long hair should be tied back and extreme haircuts are not permitted.

Winter uniform

 
  • White shirt or white polo shirt
  • Blue school polo shirt
  • Blue school sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece with St. Andrew’s logo
  • Mid grey skirt, trousers or pinafore dress
  • Mid grey trousers
  • White/grey tights or socks
  • Sturdy/sensible black flat/low heeled shoes (not trainers) with laces, buckles or  velcro

Although set days are allocated for PE lessons, there are other times within the week where PE may take place. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every day to guarantee they do not miss out on these opportunities.

To order uniform, please visit the on-line shop at www.standrewsce.bigcartel.com or follow the link on the school website.

Samples are available in the school reception should you wish to try them for size before ordering.

If everyone ensures the uniform guidelines are followed it supports parents when children ask to wear items outside of the policy e.g. black trainers instead of school shoes. If you do need clarification regarding uniform requirements, please ask your child’s class teacher or the school office.

I should like to thank you in advance for your support in maintaining standards at St. Andrew’s. It is lovely seeing the children looking proud and smart in school. Please ask if there is anything which needs clarification.
