North Petherton Primary School Uniform Policy
Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:
The School Uniform:
Children need a change of clothes for P.E. and a bag to keep the PE kit in at school. They should wear:
For health & safety reasons, children are not permitted to wear earrings for P.E. Your child’s teacher will advise you when PE lessons take place, so that earrings can be removed. Additionally, long hair must be ties back.
Black shoes should be worn. For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear shoes with platform soles, high heels or flip flops. If it is a wet or cold day and your child needs to wear wellies or warm boots to travel to school, please make sure they have normal school shoes to change into.
Jewellery, watches, hair ornaments, make-up and nail varnish
For health & safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery. The exceptions to this are earring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance.
Children are required to remove any items during PE lessons to prevent them from causing injury. Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.
Wrist watches may be worn but only for the purpose of telling the time.
Make-up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of hours’ function, for example a school disco.
For health & safety reasons and to ensure it does not distract from learning, we advise that long hair be tied back.
