School Uniform

 

 

Belmont Primary School
Uniform Policy

 

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school and when participating in school organised events outside of school hours (unless otherwise stated). In implementing the policy, we request the cooperation of parents and carers to ensure that pupils adhere to the policy thus representing themselves and the school in an appropriate way.

It is largely perceived that a school uniform is beneficial for the following reasons:

  • It promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • It is both practical and smart;
  • It fosters a sense of belonging and community within the school;
  • It promotes equality between children;
  • It prevents children from wearing ‘fashionable’ items which may cause distraction.

 

The majority of the uniform is widely available and does not have to have the embroidered school logo. Local stockists include:

  • Bambini’s, 19 Chaloner Street, Guisborough, Cleveland TS14 6QD;
  • Boyes, 87-91 Westgate, Guisborough TS14 6AF;

If parents wish to have embroidered polo shirts or sweaters, these can be purchased from:

  • Elizabeth’s Embroidery, 8 Richardson Road, Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland TS18 3LJ;
  • Quick-a-stitch, 19 West Terrace, Redcar, Cleveland TS10 1DP.

PE Kit

  • White tee shirt or polo shirt;
  • Black or navy blue shorts or leggings;
  • White ‘sports style’ socks;
  • Plimsolls or trainers.
    In winter, children may bring a sweatshirt, jogging bottoms / tracksuit bottoms and football boots.

PE kit needs to be in a suitable bag which can be hung up on a coat peg.  The small ‘drawstring’ style bags are ideal.


Occasionally, children selected for a sports team may require specialist equipment such as shin pads. They will be informed of this upon selection.

WE ASK THAT ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING ARE CLEARLY NAMED.

There are ‘lost property’ baskets situated in both the Key Stage One and Key Stage Two buildings. These baskets are emptied regularly and, if not claimed, the contents are disposed of if they are not clearly named.

JEWELLERY

In the interest of safety and in accordance with guidelines issued to schools, children should not wear jewellery, apart from small plain stud earrings and a wrist watch. This includes such items as ‘fashion bracelets’, charms and pendants. Where earrings are worn, they must be removed for PE and swimming. STAFF ARE NOT PERMITTED TO REMOVE THESE FROM CHILDREN.

Watches must also be removed for PE.

THE SCHOOL CANNOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LOSS OF THESE ITEMS.

HAIR AND MAKE UP

Make up of any description is not permitted and no nail varnish is to be worn. We ask that hair is of an appropriate style for school and that, for safety reasons, long hair is tied back using functional accessories.

Items of value should not be brought into school. If it is felt necessary that children need to have a mobile telephone, this must be handed into the office for safe keeping during the school day.
