SCHOOL UNIFORM

 

School Uniform

At Whitecote Primary School we aim to foster a feeling of community within our school. We expect all children to wear correct school uniform. We believe that it is smart, it gives the school an identity and it gives the child a sense of belonging. School uniform promotes a sense of pride in the school and is both practical and good value for money. It helps the children feel equal, is not distracting during lessons and enables parents to insist that certain clothes are worn. We believe that pupils should dress appropriately for the activities they are undertaking, which includes having correct kits for P.E.

White/emerald green polo shirt or white shirt

In summer, boys may wear smart school shorts in black or grey.

In winter, boys may wear appropriate footwear such as wellies or snow-boots, but these must be changed for indoor use.

P.E. Kits

During PE it is important for reasons of hygiene and safety that pupils have a change of clothing.

P.E. kit Indoor

Plain white t-shirt

Plain black shorts

 

Outdoor sports

Plain white t-shirt

Plain black or grey tracksuit bottoms

Plain black or grey tracksuit top

Trainers

 

Please note the main changes are to shoes – which must be plain, flat, black leather school shoes from September – and to P.E. kits, which must be plain white and black with black or grey tracksuits for outdoor games. This is partly in response to parental concerns about the rising cost of branded clothing; plain P.E. kits can be purchased for a much smaller cost from all large supermarkets and many other clothing stores. Plain white, black and grey school uniform can also be purchased from the supermarkets and other clothing stores and the emerald-green school sweatshirts with logos, polo shirts, cardigans, book bags and PE bags can be purchased from ‘Uniformity’ on Farsley Town Street. Sweatshirts and cardigans can also be purchased online from Tesco at  http://www.tesco.com/direct/whitecote-primary-school/5454.school . Book bags can also be purchased through school.

 

Please ensure that all items of clothing, including coats, are named with your child’s first name and surname. This can be done with permanent pen, sew-on or iron-labels or washable sticky labels, such as those on https://www.mynametags.com . (Other companies also offer similar products, but we know these ones last the weekly wash for the full year!)

 

Please ensure your child brings a coat.

 

The wearing of jewellery is not allowed for Health and Safety reasons and because they can be easily lost. Stud ear-rings or small sleepers are the only ear-rings which can be used for pierced ears.  Earrings must be removed for PE and swimming. The Governing Body accepts no responsibility for any injury, which may result from the wearing of earrings or for any items of jewellery which may be lost or damaged in school.
