SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
2022 - 2023
All pupils Charles Kingsley’s CE Primary School are expected to wear full school uniform. A good, clean, smart appearance is an asset to each pupil, and the school seeks parental support via the home school agreement in the maintenance of such an appearance. We are proud of our uniform and the smart appearance of our pupils which is constantly praised by visitors and the wider community. This in turn benefits our young people.
Pupils may wear:
Black, sensible, flat shoes without adornments - no trainers
Grey, blue or white socks - no trainer liners
Grey, blue or red tights
Mid-grey long school trousers, mid grey shorts, mid-grey skirt/culottes/pinafore. If wearing trousers these should be standard fitting: not cargo style, no cords denims or canvas trousers, no hipsters, turn-ups or adornments. Skirts and pinafores must be within 5cm of the knee.
In the warmer weather children can wear red and white check dress or red and white culottes length to be within 5 centimetres of the knee.
Plain white shirt, blouse or white polo shirt (CKS logo are available)
Navy blue "V" neck jumper or cardy (CKS logo are available)
PE AND GAMES:
Plain white round neck T shirt
Navy blue or black shorts
Plimsolls or trainers
PLAIN Navy blue or black tracksuit
GENERAL NOTES ON UNIFORM AND PERSONAL APPEARANCE
No nail varnish, false nails or make-up may be worn at school.
Limited hair gel and hair spray can be used
Hair accessories must be black, navy blue or red and NOT oversized
Fingernails should be short, neat and clean.
In addition to correct uniform, we expect a smart appearance from all our pupils, including appropriate hairstyles and suitable outer garments.
Braided hair with beads or coloured decorations, extreme hairstyles, spiked, coloured hair or designs shaved into the hair are not acceptable.
If pupils are not wearing the correct uniform, parents will be contacted. All children with longer hair are expected to have it tied back. This is for health and safety reasons as well as to guard against any spread of headlice/nits. Fringes should not obscure children’s eyes.
We have been a NO EARRING SCHOOL since September 2012. Any child wearing earrings will be asked to remove them. This discussion has been made taking into consideration the Code of Practice for PE and Local Authority Guidance.
If there is a valid reason for children wearing stud earrings eg:
If following children getting their ears pierced on DAY 1 of the SUMMER HOLIDAY and a secondary infection occurs meaning for an additional amount of finite time, earrings need to be worn.
This must be discussed and agreed with the Headtacher. If it is agreed then the child will be excluded from ALL PE unless:
Micopore is used to cover the whole earing including the spike at the back of the ear lobe. This MUST be done at home by the parent as staff are not permitted to assist.
Fashions change with such rapidity that it is not possible to cater for every possibility in print. The school must, therefore, reserve the right to decide what is or is not acceptable to a learning environment, both in uniform and general appearance, in cases not catered for by specific rules. It would be advisable, when in doubt, for parents to contact the school before spending money on items which might not be allowed.
