The wearing of school uniform and PE kit is compulsory at St Paul’s. The uniform is extremely smart and does much to engender pride in the school, as well as creating a sense of identity and belonging. The uniform is also comfortable, practical and hard-wearing.
Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name.
No jewellery is permitted except for simple, plain stud ear-rings in pierced ears. We asked that no earrings are worn on PE days. (Please see Partnership Books.) If deciding to have ears pierced, the start of the summer holiday is the best time, as earrings can be taken out by the time we return to school.
Uniform expectations may be modified for religious or cultural reasons. Please contact the Headteacher.
These should be neat and tidy with long hair tied back to avoid the spread of head lice. Hair should be of a natural colour with no close shaving or sharp contrasts in length. Large and elaborate hair accessories should not be worn and any simple bobbles, clips and hair bands should complement school colours. (Blue, black or blue gingham).
Black or grey tights may be worn in winter and blue gingham dresses in summer. Please note that after October 1st, winter uniform must be worn: no summer dresses. This is to ensure that the children are warm enough during playtimes and outdoor learning opportunities.
Gingham shorts or shorts-dresses are not permitted because of safeguarding issues related to accessing school toilets.
Children should have a sun hat in the summer and a school coat or similar coat in the winter.
White ankle socks with a blue gingham trim are permitted with summer dresses.
Swimming lessons currently in Year 5. Children should have swimming trunks (no Bermuda style shorts) or a plain 1-piece swimming costume. Swimming hats must be worn.
Children should have a school book bag in Years R- Y4. In Year 5 and Year 6, a school rucksack may be purchased instead.
No other school bags are permitted.
