PINNER WOOD SCHOOL

UNIFORM POLICY

 

Aims and objectives

Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:

 

  • promotes a sense of pride in our school;
  • helps to create a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • supports our commitment to inclusion;
  • prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting in class;
  • is practical, smart and designed with health and safety in mind;
  • is considered good value for money by most parents;

 

Expectations

We expect all pupils to comply with this uniform policy, which will be monitored. Any pupil who falls short of these requirements will be advised of this fact by their class teacher and given the opportunity to improve. Continued failure to comply will be brought to the attention of the Headteacher.

 

The Role of Parents

We believe that one of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and PE kit, and that it is clean, in good repair and that the child’s name is written on all items.

 

The Role of Governors

The governing body supports the Headteacher in implementing the School Uniform Policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the Headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity. It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities. Governors ensure that the school Uniform Policy enables children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.

Headscarves/Hijab

These may be worn for religious reasons but must be in school colours – green, black, or white

 

Jewellery

It is not appropriate for children to wear jewellery except a sensible watch and a pair of small plain stud earrings. Earings must be removed for PE and not tapped. Watches – to be analogue or digital.  No smart watches.  Fitbits are allowed.

 

Hairstyles

Hairstyles should be appropriate for school, i.e. no “mohicans”, no designs cut into hair, no extremely short hair (no-guard or number 1) or bright coloured highlights. All long hair (shoulder length or longer) should be tied back. Headbands or hair bobbles should be plain green, black, or brown

 

Nail Varnish

Nail varnish should not be worn in school.

 

Other items

Children need a coat for school, wellies (Nursery and Reception) and in the summer need a sunhat – all to be provided from home and named.

 

School Bags

There is no reason for children to bring large bags into school. Early Years and Key Stage 1 children bring a book bag.

 There is a great shortage of space in the cloakrooms and large bags exacerbate the problem. Lunch boxes can be carried and stored on trolleys.

 

Equality Impact Assessment

We as a school community have a commitment to promote equality. Therefore, an equality impact assessment has been undertaken and we believe this policy is in line with the Equality Act 2010 as it is fair, it does not prioritise or disadvantage any pupil and it helps to promote equality at this school.

 

Monitoring and Review

The governing body monitors and reviews the school uniform policy through its committee work by: seeking the views of parents, to ensure that they agree with and support the policy; considering, with the Headteacher, any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensation with regard to school uniform;
