School Uniform

A sense of pride and belonging

 

We want every child in our family of schools to feel proud wearing their school uniform.

At the Whiteoak Academies, we feel that wearing a school uniform helps our children to develop a clear sense of identity and belonging and reflects the high standards we are striving to achieve for each and every individual.

 

All children are expected to wear our school uniform and if you experience difficulties providing this, please contact the school office who will discuss this with you in the strictest confidence. Variations on our uniform policy may be made in consultation with the Headteacher on the basis of religious or cultural beliefs.

 

The uniform guide for our children is as follows:

 

White polo shirt;

Red sweatshirt or cardigan for children in Hannah More,

Navy sweatshirt or cardigan for children in Grove,

(The school encourages sweatshirts or polo shirts with The Whiteoak Academies Logo to be worn).

 

Dark grey or black trousers or knee length shorts,

Knee length skirt / pinafore.

 

Plain white, grey, navy or black socks.

 

Summer

As above or white/red gingham summer dress for children in Hannah More; or blue/white summer dress for children in Grove.

 

Shoes

Shoes (no trainers please) should be black and able to be fastened independently.

Children in Hannah More also need a pair of “wellies” in school.

We ask that children do not wear boots or open-toed sandals for health and safety reasons.

 

Name Tags and Labels

Please mark all items of clothing and footwear with your child’s name. If they are not named, it is very difficult to trace lost items.

 

Hair and Accessories

Hair should be neat and tidy and tied back if long.

Haircuts should be smart with no shaved patterns or lines.

Hair accessories such as headbands and bows should be small and practical and red or blue in colour.

 

Makeup & Jewellery

We request that children do not wear jewellery to school.

Children who have pierced ears are allowed to wear plain studs. These should be removed for P.E. sessions and Games or covered with a plaster (supplied by the parent and applied by the child).

 

Nail varnish and make-up should not be worn.


Outerwear

We ask that children have a suitable coat to wear at playtimes when the weather is cold or wet.

 

Sunhats may be worn at playtimes in the summer.

 

We also ask that parents apply suntan lotion to their children before school as suntan lotion should not be brought into school.

White T-Shirt (available with logo) for children in Hannah More,

Plain House colour T-shirt for children in Grove,

Black or Navy shorts (not cycle shorts),

An additional plastic bag may also be necessary for muddy trainers.
