Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.  The exception to this rule is that children with pierced ears may wear one pair of stud earrings (no hoops).

 

Hair

The school does not permit children to have haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.  We request that children with long hair have it tied back during school hours for health and safety reasons.  Hair accessories, eg, hair bands and bobbles should reflect the school colours or be neutral.  Parents should also be aware that tattoos and nail polish are not permitted.

 

Footwear

The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults.  We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels in school, so we do not allow this. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school; these are appropriate for sport or as leisurewear, but are not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform.

 

PLEASE ENSURE ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING ARE CLEARLY LABELED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME

 

SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY

Introduction

At St Catherine’s CE School it is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.

 Aims and Objectives

Our policy is based on the notion that a school uniform:-

  • 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.

The Role of Parents / Carers

We ask all parents / carers who send their children to our school for their support of the school uniform policy.  We believe that parents / carers have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork.  Parents / carers should ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.

If any parent / carer would like the school to modify the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the Head Teacher.  The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities.  If there are serious reasons, for example religious objections, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform the school will look sympathetically at such requests.  Similarly, should an item of school uniform prove problematic for a pupil with disabilities then parents are invited to draw this to the attention of the Head Teacher.  The school will not treat pupils with disabilities unfavourably.

The Role of Governors 

The Governing Body supports the Head Teacher in implementing the school uniform policy.  It considers all representations from parents regarding this policy, and liaises with the Head Teacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.

It is the Governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all national regulations concerning equal opportunities, and that our school uniform policy is consistent with our policy on equal opportunities.

Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.

Monitoring and Review

 When monitoring this policy, through its committee work, the Governing Body will:-

  • seek the views of parents, to be sure that they agree with the policy, and support it;
  • consider with the Head Teacher any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensations;
  • require the Head Teacher to report to the Governors on the way the policy is being implemented.
