CHILD PROTECTION and SAFEGUARDING

SCHOOL UNIFORM

 

Uniform

Children should come to school dressed in school uniform, except on their PE days when they should come to school in their PE kit. The school’s uniform is gender neutral and is as follows:

•  Grey/black skirt or pinafore

•  Grey/black trousers

•  White or grey shirts/blouses/polo shirts. Plain white or grey T-shirts and roll neck tops are also acceptable 

•  Plain red jumpers or cardigans

•  Red  sweatshirts or sweatcardis 

•  Plain grey or black summer shorts or short trousers, Bermuda shorts (cycle shorts are to be worn under skirts).

•  Red and white checked, or striped, summer dresses.

•  Footwear should be sensible flat shoes or trainers.

 

Children will also need:

•  PE kit of plimsolls (needed for apparatus work) white T-shirt and black shorts.

•  Games kit of warm tracksuit or something similar to wear when the weather is cold and outdoor trainers.

•  For safety reasons, long hair, including long fringes, should be tied back with a coil or “ouchless” type hair tie during PE and earrings must be removed.

•  All clothes should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

•  Jewellery or make-up may not be worn in school. The only exceptions are watches and plain gold or silver studs for pierced ears.

•  Younger children may also require a change of underwear or spare uniform in case of accidents!

 

Dress Down Friday

Dress down Friday has been a great success, beloved of children and teacher’s alike. However, listening to parents, we know that some of you can find it leads to a stressy morning.  Parents have also expressed concern that with children coming to school twice a week in PE kit, the addition of dress down Friday leaves little opportunity for the children to wear their school uniform. That being the case, we have had a rethink of dress down Friday and have decided that instead of doing it on a weekly basis, we will have dress down days half termly or so, to raise funds for specific things, such as school trips or to purchase scenery/props for productions or specific charity events. We will let you know in advance which days are to be dress down days.

 

Most items of uniform can be ordered direct from School Trends website. Here is Icknield Primary School Link: https://www.schooltrendsonline.com/uniform/Icknield_Primary_School_CB22_3EA

Please note that non-branded uniform can also be purchased from a retailer of your choice.
