Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Jesus said "Let the children come to me" We live and learn and love in His way.

School Uniform Policy

Our School Uniform is important to us.  It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.  It promotes harmony between different groups represented in the school and it enhances security.  The uniform has been chosen following consultation with children, governors, parents and staff. It reflects the needs of the cultural traditions represented at our school.

 

 

At Holy Family Catholic Primary School, we believe that a school uniform is important, because:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be)
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
  • Has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Jewellery

Our policy for wearing jewellery follows the authority guidelines, which means that children should not wear jewellery to school.  If earrings need to be worn, then one pair of small studs can be worn which will need to be removed for PE lessons.  In addition, we do allow older children to wear a sensible watch but no other items of jewellery can be worn.

Footwear

We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels.  We ask children to wear black school shoes with no logo’s.  Trainers are not be worn to school, these are only appropriate for sports or leisurewear and are not in keeping with the smart appearance of our school uniform.

Appearance

The school does not permit children to have haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children or to wear hair gel as this has health and safety implications.  Parents should also be aware that tattoos are not permitted.

Our school policy states that children will be encouraged not to: 

  • have second earrings, or visible facial/body piercing.

  • have visible tattoos, either temporary or permanent.

  • have tram lines, patterned haircuts, hair dyed a different colour braids.

  • have their heads shaved bald.

  • spike their hair with gel.

The Head Teacher will advise and encourage parents who are responsible for ensuring their child attends school in line with the school policy and our home school agreement.

SHOES:  We do encourage the wearing of black shoes. In the interest of safety children are strongly encouraged to wear shoes without high heels and in interest of hygiene the wearing of trainers all day is not recommended. We have had some accidents caused as a direct result of wearing of unsuitable strappy sandals and high heels.

JEWELLERY:  In the interest of safety children are asked not to wear jewellery. Where children have pierced ears, studs only are permitted due to the risks involved during games and P.E. lessons (only one stud per ear please).

 

Please support us by ensuring your child wears the correct school uniform. Thank you.
