 We request that shirts do not have a velcro top button as these have proven to be unsuccessful in remaining fastened.  Top buttons must be fastened whilst the tie is worn.  Ties are available from the school office. 


Make-up, nail varnish and jewellery  

Children are not allowed to wear make-up or nail varnish to school. If they do, they will be asked to remove this at home that evening.  Ear studs are the only type of jewellery that children are permitted to wear. As stated in the Physical Education section, children must be able to remove ear studs themselves as they are not permitted to wear jewellery for any PE lesson or sport event.  Children are allowed to wear watches to school, but we would strongly discourage children wearing expensive watches, smart watches or fitness trackers to school in case they get damaged or lost. The school does not take responsibility for the damage or loss of these items.



No extreme haircuts are allowed eg fully shaved heads, dyeing in unnatural colours, tracking with logos and spiking of hair is not permitted. 


Top tips for parents on uniforms:

 • Ensure all items are labelled clearly.  

• Some uniform providers sell brown rain coats and fleeces. However, these are not compulsory and children may wear their own coats, hats (both summer and winter), scarves & gloves.  

• Although available on some items of clothing, the school crest is not a requirement. • Velcro on shoes makes easier dressing.

 • Five or six shirts are a good idea as they get pretty messy. This gives you one for every day plus a clean one ready for Monday.

 • Zips on the dresses makes dressing easier.

 • Uniforms can be purchased from Fletcher Sports, Marks and Spencer (brown trousers are normally not on display but available),  Game Changers and Next (to name a few), or online. 



If your child is unwell please phone the school on 01481 225020 and leave a voice message or email stating the reason for your child's absence.


Please note that if your child has been sick or had diarrhoea they should not come back to school until 48 hours after the last time they have been ill.



Only medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor can be administered to a pupil at school and a consent form will need to be signed by the parent/carer.  The form can be collected from the school office or you can download the form here.  All medication will  need to be handed in to the school office with the completed Administration of Medication Form.  Please do not pass on any medication to the class teachers/learning support assistants.  If we do not receive permission by the parent/carer in writing we will not be able to administer the medicine.  Please note that parents/carers are responsible for collecting and disposing of any unused medication from the school office.


If you have identified your child as having a medical condition e.g. asthma, please be aware it is your responsibility to inform the school and provide the relevant prescribed medication and a Doctors letter/Care Plan to the school.


Medication kept in school e.g. inhalers/epipens - all medication will be returned to the pupil's parent/carer at the end of the school year.  If your child still requires medication to be kept in school at the beginning of the new academic year this will need to be returned to the school office together with an updated care plan if there have been any changes to your child's medical needs.  Please do not pass any medication to the class teachers or learning support assistants.


Bumps to the Head

If your child receives a  bump or injury to the head you will be notified in the form of a bumped head sticker.  If the first aider feels the head bump needs further attention you will receive a phone call advising you of this.
