This is our Prenton Primary School Uniform
Clothing for School
All of our children wear the school uniform. Children are expected to come to school clean and suitably dressed and we do appreciate parents’ co-operation in this matter. Uniform items with the school badge are available from local children’s outfitters. Details of one local supplier are in the parent packs.
Girls: White blouse, red or white polo shirt, grey tunic/skirt, grey jumper/cardigan. Girls are allowed to wear trousers providing they are plain grey school uniform type. Red and white check summer school dresses and red cardigans may be worn after spring break.
Boys: Red or white polo shirt, grey pullover or sweatshirt, grey shorts, grey trousers.
Black school shoes must be worn.
Pupils with long hair should have it tied back at all times.
· Pupils are not permitted to have spray coloured hair, false nails or nail varnish at any time in school. Make up cannot be worn during the school day which includes non-uniform days. Face paint cannot be worn at any time.
· No smart watches or mobile phones.
· Please ensure that your child has suitable footwear for school; training shoes are not part of the uniform and neither are trainer type shoes. Older children are allowed to wear trainers at lunchtime on the playground. Children change back into school shoes when they come back into school.
In the summer months it is still important for children to wear the appropriate footwear – not open sandals, slingbacks, wedge sandals or ballet pumps.
P.E. and Games form part of the school curriculum from the summer term in Foundation 2 and suitable clothing and footwear is necessary. For guidance, listed below are the items required.
Girls: Blue or white shorts, school T-shirt and pumps.
Boys: Blue or white shorts, school T-shirt and pumps.
Children are involved in learning games skills and do not need any specific equipment. It is safer for younger children to do dance and P.E. in bare feet.
It is important that children have their P.E. kits in school at all times. Please ensure that kits are named and in a named bag to hang on their peg. We encourage the children to take kits home at half terms for washing.
It is advisable for children to bring into school an old apron or shirt to wear during art activities as we cannot be responsible for stains caused by paint or glue spillages during art lessons.
