The school encourages the wearing of a uniform and it is hoped that parents will support this policy.
On top: Our school colour is bottle green. Jumpers, cardigans, polo shirts and book bags with the school logo on can be purchased online from the following supplier www.yourschoolwear.co.uk. Coats and school ties can be purchased directly from the school by completing an order form and purchases will be sent home with your child.
EY and KS1 Uniform: Throughout the year, children have the option to wear a white shirt, white polo shirt or a green school logo polo shirt. For our younger children ties are optional.
KS2 Uniform: Throughout the year, children wear a white shirt and tie. However, during the summer (from after Easter break through to October half term) children may wear the green school logo polo shirt or a white polo shirt without a tie.
Underneath: Children wear black or grey trousers/shorts/skirts/pinafores and flat black shoes (shoes: low heel with good support to enable children to be comfortably active throughout the day. Easy fastening, with no laces for younger children is best).
Hair: Shoulder length hair should be tied back and we request that hair-bands and hair accessories should only be black or green.
Dresses: During the summer (from after Easter break through to October half term) green gingham check summer dresses may be worn.
Our PE kit comprises of:
INDOOR: black shorts and a plain T-shirt in the colour of their house (red, blue, purple or green) – no pictures, logos or football strips please!
OUTDOOR: as indoor, with addition of suitable footwear such as trainers and a warm tracksuit. For safety reasons we request that tracksuit tops do not have hoods.
SWIMMING: trunks/swimsuit, towel and a named swimming cap for both girls and boys (caps available to purchase from the office).
For all PE activities long hair must be tied back with an appropriate school coloured hairband.
In accordance with Local Authority Health and Safety guidance, it is no longer allowable for children to tape earrings for PE & games sessions. As staff are not permitted to remove earrings for children, please ensure your child can do this themselves or that they are not worn on PE days.
All school clothing should be clearly named.
Make up, including nail varnish, is not permitted at Friar’s Grove. Hair should be the pupil’s natural colour, with no extremes in style such as shaved heads (i.e a cut which is less than a number two), or shaved patterns in the hair. These rules prepare children for the expectations at Secondary school.
Jewellery is not part of our school uniform and children should be discouraged from wearing bracelets/necklaces. Earrings should be stud only – no hooped or dangly earrings. If you are planning to have your child’s ears pierced please ensure it is done at the beginning of the summer holidays so it does not interfere with curriculum PE.
