It is expected that all pupils will wear school colours every day.
At St Martin’s CE Primary School we have a school dress code. This code of acceptable dress is called our “School Colours”.
For every activity we do it is important that we dress appropriately, are smart but comfortable and show positively that we belong to the school.
Smart appearance helps to set the high standards, which we hope all children will achieve.
It is requested that parents provide their children with suitable clothes for school, which adhere to the school dress code and are in school colours.
The school colours are royal blue, grey, black and white.
Items of clothing should be in plain colours, not patterned or containing other colours or logos. Denim and other “fashion” and sports fabrics should not be worn.
Extremes of hair styling (shaven heads, coloured hair, ‘mohicans’, heavily gelled and spiked etc.) are not acceptable as part of the school’s dress code.
School wear for all pupils
Shirt/jumper – Plain royal blue sweatshirt, jumper or cardigan, worn over a white, grey or royal blue shirt.
(In summer parents may prefer girls to wear blue and white striped or gingham dresses.)
Please note that in summer months, girls should not wear sandals that are secure and will not easily come off in the playground.
Grey or black trousers or shorts or skirt
Plain black suitable footwear. Sports trainers should not be worn unless for outdoor PE sessions
All items of clothing including coats, hats, scarves and P.E. kit should be clearly marked with the child’s name and are the responsibility of the child.
Whilst reasonable efforts will be made to locate items of lost property the school is unable to accept and responsibility for pupils’ clothing or personal belongings.
For health and safety reasons jewellery should not be worn at school with the exception of small ‘stud’ style earrings and watches for pupils who wish to wear them.
PE wear for all pupils
All children will need a change of clothes on days when they have Physical Education.
- Plain royal blue, black or white P.E. shorts.
- Royal blue or white short sleeved top.
- Black plimsolls or trainers
- A warm fleece may be worn for outdoor PE in cold weather.
(Other items, such as track suits and jogging suits are not essential but can be brought in addition to the items in the above list.)
Children are expected to remember to have their P.E. kit in school on the correct days.
Pupils are not allowed to wear P.E. dress in school for the whole day and must get changed after their PE session.
It is expected that pupils will develop a growing sense of personal hygiene and this will be encouraged by home and school alike.
Some KS2 classes will need kit for swimming during the year. Swimming kit includes a costume, towel and swimming hat, where appropriate.
All items should be contained in a clearly named bag. Swimming kit should be brought to school on swimming days and be taken home, to be laundered, on the same day.
