School Uniform

school uniform

Wearing school uniform encourages a pride in being a member of Gusford Primary School. It ensures that children are dressed appropriately for all school activities. Uniform reinforces school identity and eliminates ‘brand’ fashion and stigma. Staff and Governors actively encourage the wearing of school uniform.

Logo items of uniform are available to order from our supplier PMG Schoolwear https://pmgschoolwear.co.uk

Many local supermarkets sell the grey trousers/skirts/shorts and summer dresses etc. Sainsbury’s and Asda both sell packs of bottle green polo shirts and they, along with Tesco, sell bottle green jumpers and cardigans.

Parents are asked to send their children to school tidy and appropriately dressed for the weather of the day.

Uniform changes

White polo shirts and black trousers are being phased out across the school but can still be worn throughout the 2018/2019 school year if you already have them. We are working towards green polo shirts and grey trousers only from September 2019.

School shoes (no trainers or fashion footwear), should be plain black, sensible and suitable for running and playing in the playground. In the summer months sandals or summer shoes may be worn, these should be as plain as possible and black, brown, green or white. High heeled footwear and ‘flip flop’ style sandals are not permitted as they are unsafe for the school environment. Many falls in school are caused by ill-fitting or inappropriate shoes.

Watches and plain stud earrings are the only items of jewellery which may be worn at school and these must be removed during P.E. and swimming lessons. Make up and nail varnish are not permitted.

It is recommended for safety that long hair is tied back throughout the school day, hair accessories should be sensible and must be in school colours. Extremes of hairstyle are not acceptable.

It is essential that every item of clothing and footwear is clearly marked with the child’s name. We will always do our best to recover items that go missing, but unless they are clearly marked it is sometimes very difficult, with many similar items, to establish the correct owner.

P.E Kit List

For P.E lessons it is essential that the children are correctly dressed in a manner appropriate to the activity.

PE Kit: Plain white T-shirt, black or bottle green shorts and plimsolls.
