Uniform


Two of our children wearing our smart school uniform.

At our school we have a uniform which is simple and smart and gives the children a sense of belonging.

Girls

  • White shirt
  • House colour tie (red for Windsor, yellow for Charnwood)
  • Grey skirt, pinafore dress or trousers
  • White socks or grey or black tights
  • Sensible black shoes with low heels
  • Grey cardigan or sweater
  • Summer: Gingham house colour dress

Boys

  • White shirt
  • House colour tie (red for Windsor, yellow for Charnwood)
  • Dark grey trousers
  • Dark colour socks
  • Sensible black shoes
  • Grey sweater
  • Summer: Grey shorts or long trousers

PE Kit

  • White t-shirt
  • White shorts
  • Socks (especially for the girls when wearing tights with their uniform)
  • Plimsolls for the Infants
  • Trainers for the juniors for all other sports.
  • Grey track suits may be advisable in cold weather.

This kit should always be available.

Replica football kits are acceptable when playing football.

All clothes should be changed for PE/Games, including socks and tights. It is unhygienic to wear the same clothes for a PE/Games lesson and then in class for other lessons.

PE and Games kits should be brought to school each Monday and taken home on Fridays.

Art and Craft

A suitable apron should be provided to protect clothing or an adult’s old shirt is equally serviceable and high recommended.

Notes

  • House Colour ties can be bought from the school office.
  • All items of clothing and equipment should be name marked.
  • Items of jewellery, including earrings, must be removed for PE and games. The risk of injury to the child or others, however small, is unacceptable. If a child is unable to remove earrings on their own, they should not be worn to school.
  • Children should not wear make up of any kind, nor elaborate earrings (studs and sleepers only) and jewellery.
  • No hair gel is allowed, no colouring of hair, no lines cut into the hair and no makeup, including nail varnish.

The school uniform is very important and we want the children to take a pride in themselves and to be proud of being at The Pochin School.
