We are proud of our school uniform and expect all children to wear their uniform with care and pride. We are pleased to provide the following information in relation to our school uniform.
Our approach and expectations with regard to uniform ensure we meet the requirements of the Government Cost of School Uniform Statutory Guidance. The key points of this are;
All uniform items are available from Rawcliffes and Emblazon. All non-school logo items such as polo shirts, buttoned shirts, skirts and trousers can be found in a wide range of high street clothing shops, supermarkets and second hand retailers at competitive prices. Throughout the summer months both shops take bookings for in-store appointments.
FOSP also has pre-worn uniform available to purchase. Termly sales take place in playground usually on a Friday at the end of the day. Alternatively, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need support or help with uniform.
All items of clothing, including coats, footwear and bags should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. We strongly recommend stitched or iron on name labels.
Should children wear Summer or Winter Uniform?
In the past the school has operated summer and winter uniform. We are happy for families to choose from the uniform options which they feel is best and most suitable and comfortable for their child throughout the year.
School preference is that no jewellery is worn as it is unsuitable during school hours. Apart from the risk of loss, these items can present safety problems to the wearers and others.
Children are permitted to wear stud earrings and a watch only. Earrings must be removed for PE unless within the first 8 weeks of having ears pierced or if children can not quickly, easily and independently remove them. If it is not possible to remove earrings children may be asked to cover them with plasters depending on the nature of the physical activity. We politely request that no smart watches are worn in school. Any jewellery brought into school is done so at the risk of the child and family.
Children will play outside in light rain and in cold temperatures. Children should have warm waterproof coat. School does not have the staffing capacity to keep children in side school during outdoor play if they do not have a coat.
We host regular preloved uniform sales throughout the year often at the end of each full term. We can also make this available throughout each term as needed. Please feel free to speak in confidence with any of the office team or your child’s class teacher if we can help in this way.
Please ensure ALL uniform is label with full name. We advise that either a sew in, iron on or sticky name labels are used as these are easily read and we can reunite children with their items quickly.
We are pleased to partner with My Name Tags. For every set of labels ordered with My Name Tags FOSP will receive a donation. Click on the link here to go direct to their website where you can order your name labels.
