Uniform

Uniform is an important part of a school’s identity. It reinforces who we are as a community and helps allow pupils to feel pride in their school. We want our pupils to have high expectations at all times, and we ask for your support in this matter. It is essential that the correct uniform is worn, including footwear, and so we thought it was best to clarify our expectations now ready for the start of the next academic year.

Pupils will have one outdoor and one indoor PE lesson a week and so will need both sets of uniform in school everyday each week. Please ensure your child’s name is on all of their uniform including their footwear.

 

School Shoes

 

It states clearly on the school uniform list that the pupils need black shoes and not trainers, but we have found that more children than ever are coming into school with incorrect footwear. It probably doesn’t help that sports brands advertise trainers as being school shoes when they are not; therefore, we thought it would be helpful to set out clearly what is expected. Please see the policy for pictoral examples of acceptable and unacceptable shoes.

Additional Information

We would also like to take this opportunity to clarify the following:

  • Pupils with long hair must tie it back and it must remain tied back at all times. Please note any hair bows or clips must be of a small size.
  • Pupils are not allowed to wear nail varnish or make-up.
  • The wearing of jewellery in school is discouraged for safety reasons and the Academy cannot be responsible for any loss or damage.  If earrings must be worn, then please ensure that they are small studs only. We have seen an increasing number of pupils are regularly wearing small hoops.
  • Earrings and watches must be removed for PE lessons and the Academy does not accept responsibility for these.
  • The summer holiday is a perfect time for children to have their ears pierced. If your child has their ears pierced during term time, they will not be able to participate in PE lessons until their earrings can be removed.
  • Coats and jackets should have a strong hanging loop so that they may be hung-up in the cloakrooms. Coats and jackets should also be clearly labelled.

 

School Uniform Shops

  • Uniform with the school logo is available from Havering Schoolwear: The Havering Schoolwear shop is located at 160-162 Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, RM11 1QH.
  • Uniform without logos can be purchased from any provider including supermarkets.

 

Lost Property

All lost property is stored in the lost property area at the end of the Year 6 corridor and pupils and parents can check daily afterschool. The lost property will also be put out in the hall in the last week of each half term after school so pupils and parents can come in and have a look. 

 

Pre-loved Uniform

The school has a supply of good quality, donated items of uniform and unclaimed lost property to purchase second-hand for a small donation. The pre-loved uniform will be kept in the Woodlands Room and can be purchased at any time. Please talk to the Family and Pastoral Support Worker before or afterschool and she can assist you.

 

If you require assistance purchasing uniform please don’t hesitate to speak to us, and we will do our best to help. There are also occasions when we give correct uniform to pupils who do not have it so please don’t take offence.
