Uniform

We are very proud of our school and our school uniform!

 

Within our school we promote an atmosphere which encourages effort, enjoyment and a celebration of the achievements of all our pupils.  Our concern for these high standards is also reflected in the pride we take in our school uniform and the feeling of belonging it creates.  It is our School Policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school organised event outside of normal school hours. The uniform is part of our school ethos and in coming to St Matthew's CE Primary School, parents agree to support our policy. 


Aims and Objectives of our Uniform Policy

Our Policy for Uniform is based on the belief that school uniform: 

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school and it has a positive impact on behaviour and attitudes in school; 
  • Develops a sense of community and belonging towards the school; 
  • Identifies children with our school when taking part in out of school educational activities and visits; 
  • Is practical and looks smart; 
  • Makes children feel equal to others in terms of appearance; 
  • Is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes and hairstyles can be); 
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and considered by most parents as good value for money; 
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind.

 

Uniform with the school logo; sweatshirts, polo shirts, PE Kit are all available from the school office and are sold at cost price (not for profit) from our suppliers.

 

All other items can be bought from a variety of shops and supermarkets at a reasonable price.

 

If any parents do have any difficulties then please contact the school for support and guidance.

 

Remember to mark any clothing with names. The school cannot accept any responsibility for misplaced clothing but, if clothing is clearly marked, will make every effort to see lost items are returned. Please reduce the ‘risks’ by ensuring that every garment or piece of clothing (including footwear) is clearly marked with your child’s name.

Non-Compliance to our School Uniform Policy 

 

Here we outline our procedures for dealing with non-compliance to our Uniform Policy.

 

If a child does not have correct school uniform, staff will discreetly talk to the child to find out why and remind him/her of the need to wear uniform. An informal letter may be sent to parents at this stage.

 

In cases where a child repeatedly does not wear the correct uniform, the headteacher or deputy will contact the child's parents to request that they bring suitable uniform to school for the child to change into.  As an alternative to this, a supply of spare uniform will be kept in school and children may be asked to change into this.

 

Our School Policy is that cases of persistent non-compliance will result in a formal letter being sent to parents, and the headteacher will pursue the matter.
