SChool Uniform & P.E. Kit Information
Drew Primary School uniform colours are Navy Blue and White.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform;
- promotes a sense of pride in the school;
- engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
- is practical and smart;
- identifies the children with the school;
- prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
- makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
- is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
- is designed with health and safety in mind.
The Role of Parents:
We ask all parents who send their children to our school support the school’s uniform policy.
We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork.
Responsibilities of parents are to ensure that their child.
- has the correct uniform,
- has their name clearly marked on their uniform,
- ensure that the uniform is clean and in good repair.
If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the Headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.
Our school uniform consists of;
Grey pinafore dress or skirt or trousers.
White Polo top with collar (with school logo).
Navy Blue sweatshirt (with school logo) or Navy Blue Cardigan
Black school shoes with no distinguishing colours or marks.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults.
We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear open toe shoes and boots or shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school.
Grey or white socks or Grey tights.
Hair Ribbons (if worn) should be Navy blue.
Head Scarfs (if worn) should be Navy blue.
Navy Blue Fleece (with school logo)
Blue and White checkered dress can be worn.
Grey shorts can also be worn.
Children are expected to wear their P.E. kit into school on the day of their P.E. lesson. Please note - no logos (Nike, Adidas etc) are to be on any item of clothing.
The P.E. kit is the same for both boys and girls, it consists of:
(This shirt needs to be different to the shirt that they wear to school every day.)
Navy blue jumper
Navy blue shorts or jogging bottoms.
Trainers (preferably black)
Trainers are to be worn which support the children’s feet during exercise.
Please note: Converse are not trainers for exercise.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery including earrings in our school.
The exception to this is a wristwatch. We ask the children to remove this during PE, games and swimming to prevent them from causing injury.
Makeup and False Nails.
The school does not permit children to wear makeup or false nails (either temporary, stick on or acrylic/gel type). The false nails are a health and safety issue both to the child wearing them and other children in school and could cause injury to both.
