We expect children to wear a school uniform as we believe it helps reinforce the view that school is a place where they, primarily, come to learn. It also eliminates some of the problems that occur when children are competing with each other to wear the latest ‘designer clothes’.
Our uniform consists largely of a Jade sweatshirt with a choice of black, jade or white polo shirt teamed with plain black/grey skirts and trousers and plain black shoes. Clothing with the school’s logo can be ordered from Pinders Schoolwear directly at www.pindersschoolwear.co.uk and delivered to school free of charge or direct to you (delivery charges may be applied). You can also purchase these at the Pinders Shop on East Mall in Crystal Peaks.
In the summer term children can also wear white, black, grey or brown sandals. These should be sensible, no heels or open toes but must have a back strap, due to health and safety issues. Croc style shoes in the above colours would be suitable. There is also the option of wearing a summer dress (green and white checked).
- Pupils should not wear any of the following for school:
- any jewellery, except for watches and one pair ‘studs’ i.e. no rings, bangles, bracelets, loop ear-rings
- Make-up, nail varnish or ‘transfers’
- replica sports team kit
- shoes with high heels or flashing lights.
Any of the above might be seen as a distraction from the prime reason for your child’s presence in school – to work and learn.
A copy of the full uniform requirements and details of how to order can be obtained from the school office. Please clearly label all articles of your child’s clothing, particularly school sweatshirts and t-shirts and P.E. kit with tags or with indelible marker pen on the actual clothing label. It is also essential for you to label their coats, water bottle, bags and sandwich box where necessary.
P.E. kits consist of a plain white top and black shorts or black leotard; black plimsolls or pumps are also required, though children may occasionally work in bare feet.
Our PTA hold regular pre-owned uniform sales where parents can purchase items of uniform for a nominal charge.
The school and governors cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or theft of personal items. Insurance cover is not provided by the Sheffield Authority or the school against loss, theft or damage with regard to personal property of pupils, except where this has been specifically caused by the negligence of the Authority or its employees. Please note that all jewellery should be removed by the child, before any sporting activity.
