The wearing of a school uniform encourages a strong sense of belonging to the school and prevents children wearing anything that might cause a distraction to learning. Wearing a uniform helps promote equality between pupils and supports parents in providing an agreed set of clothes. We want our children to be proud of Monkton Church of England Primary School.
All children need to have a PE kit in school at all times. This should be in a named PE bag.
The basic kit is:
T-shirt - Red
Shorts – Black
Plimsolls and Trainers from Year 1 onwards
Plain warm tracksuit from Year 1 onwards
When taking part in PE, children with long hair will be expected to tie it back. Children are allowed to wear a tracksuit for outdoor PE sessions. If your child is unable to do PE, please ensure that you have informed the class teacher of the school office.
Children should not wear jewellery to school. Children with pierced ears should wear only one set of studs. These should be removed for all PE lessons. Watches may be worn but should be named. Children should not wear nail varnish at school.
Haircuts, bands and braids
Long hair should be tied back at all times. ‘Extreme’ haircuts (including ‘shaved’ patterns) are considered distracting and are not allowed. Children may wear hair bands, braids and ribbons to tie back their hair, but not as fashion accessories.
Children should wear black or dark grey school shoes (no canvas trainers). Sandals may be worn during the summer months (no sandals with open toes/high heels/sling backs). Sports trainers may only be worn for PE.
The school does not accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property of pupils. Marking clothes and other property with the owner's name is, therefore, of the greatest importance and parents are requested to ensure that all property brought to school is marked.
