HUNTERS BAR INFANT SCHOOL

SCHOOL UNIFORM

In order to generate a feeling of community, belonging and a positive self-identity, the expected school uniform for children, following consultation with parents, children and staff and agreed by the Governing Body in March 2012, is below:

Clothes should be comfortable and appropriate for the weather, including a hat and sun cream in the summer, a water resistant coat during wet weather, and warm outdoor clothing in the winter.

The following clothes fall within our dress code:

  • Plain sweatshirt, fleece or cardigan in red or bottle green
  • Plain polo shirt in red, bottle green or white
  • Plain dark trousers, shorts, skirts or pinafore dress in navy, black or dark grey
  • Check dresses in red/white or green/white

Parents have the option of purchasing tops embroidered with the school logo through the school office or purchasing appropriately coloured items from other suppliers e.g. major supermarkets and chain stores. The Home School Association (HSA) will arrange for second hand items to be available for parents and carers to purchase, if they wish.

Please see the link on this page for up to date prices and photographs from the online provider.

The following items fall outside of the school uniform remit and we request that parents avoid them:

  • Tops, trousers and skirts of colours other than those listed above
  • Jeans, combat trousers and sports wear with logos

RELIGIOUS DRESS

In line with the school’s Equality Policy, scarves and hats can be worn indoors for religious reasons. Where ever possible these items should be in one of the dress code colours. Please consult with the School and Governing Body if you have any questions.

CLOTHING FOR PE

All parents and carers are asked to provide a PE bag containing black shorts or jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, sweatshirt and plimsolls or trainers. PE shorts, T-shirts and PE bags bearing the school logo are available to purchase via the school office.

HEALTH & SAFETY: CLOTHING & FOOTWEAR

If children attend school in clothing or shoes not covered in the uniform remit and which the staff team consider to be inappropriate for health and safety reasons this will be communicated to parents and carers by the head teacher. Such items include strappy or backless tops that allow over exposure of delicate skin to the sun or very short tops and shorts.
Children should wear safe, comfortable footwear, appropriate for the season. The following styles of footwear are not acceptable:

  • high heels and high platform shoes
  • flip flops, shoes without backs, slip-on shoes eg ballet shoes and Crocs
  • fashion boots or shoes that do not facilitate active play.

If children come to school in Wellington boots please provide a change of shoes to wear indoors.

JEWELLERY

It is the policy of Hunter’s Bar Infant School that jewellery should not be worn at school.
Jewellery, including earrings and watches, is not permitted for PE lessons and must be removed.

LABELLING OF CLOTHES

Please clearly label all of your child’s clothes and shoes. Laundry pens are available for purchase at the school office. It is much easier to identify your child’s clothes if they are labelled.
