School Uniform

Werrington Primary School

School Uniform

The school has a uniform which was adopted after consultation with parents and a list is given below.  The governors anticipate that parents will encourage children to wear school uniform.

Items listed below may be obtained from any of the shops in the city which deal with clothing for children.  Hair bands should be black, white or yellow and must be kept simple.  All clothing should be clearly marked with the child's name.  Uniform items with the school logo are available for purchase from school, as well as ties and PE tops in house colours.

As children get older, they should become responsible for their own possessions, and they should be discouraged from bringing valuables to school.  Valuables, in the form of jewellery (rings or necklaces) and expensive toys should not be brought to school.  If watches are brought, they are entirely at the child's own risk.  During PE or games, they should be left with the class teacher.  Only small studs should be worn in the ears and for safety reasons, they must be removed for PE and games.  Young children who are not capable of removing their own earrings, should not wear them on games and PE days.  For safety reasons, earrings have to be removed for physical activities.  (This is LA Health and Safety Policy).

No football shirts other than school colours are allowed.
