St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School Hope in God

School Uniform

School Uniform

 

We are proud of our pupils and see them as ambassadors for our school when they wear the school uniform. The uniform has been designed to be practical and comfortable and there is an expectation that all children wear it. We carry out regular uniform checks and expect support from families when we voice a concern regarding uniform.

 

When we attend a special event, we make sure that we are dressed smartly and appropriately. This shows that we care about what we are doing and gives us a sense of occasion. Education is a wonderful occasion and a great privilege; therefore, the children’s uniform should reflect this.


Children will wear their uniform 5 days a week and will change in school for PE lessons and all after school sports and dance clubs. The only time a child should come into school in anything other than their uniform, will be on their birthday, as part of a Shining Light Reward or on a ‘Home Clothes’ day. The exception to this is Selsey Class children on a Wednesday who wear their Woodland School outfit all day.

Hair 
  • Hair that is long enough to be tied up should be. Hair ties and headbands should be navy blue/ white or a natural hair colour. It is not acceptable to wear glittery or colourful hair accessories or headbands; these should be saved for out of school use and ‘Home Clothes’ days.
  • Fade lines and shapes shaved into the hair are no acceptable in school
  • All hair that is long enough to be tied up should be tied up completely, regardless of your child’s gender. Head Lice are always doing the rounds in primary schools and a good way of preventing your child catching these is to ensure hair is always tied up. It is also one less distraction for your child, when learning, to have their hair tied away from their face.
Jewellery
  • Earrings - a single plain stud in each ear only, no hoops and children must be able to remove these themselves for sporting activities. 
  • No other jewellery is permitted

 

Top Buttons
Children must have their top button done up, please ensure this is the case when they arrive at school. A top button can be tight at the beginning of the year, but if they have the right size shirt, there should be no issue.

 

Skirt and Dress Length
Skirts and dresses should be within 5cm of the knee. Overly short skirts are not appropriate for active playtimes, sitting on the carpet and other school based activities.

 

Shoes - Girls

Ballet pumps without a strap are not acceptable school shoes, as they constantly fall off when children are running and cause so many trips and falls.

Examples of appropriate shoes for girls: 

 

Shoes - Boys

Examples of appropriate shoes for boys:

Please see below examples of unacceptable shoes for both boys and girls: No boots, canvas shoes or trainer style shoes are permitted. Branded sports makes including (but not limited to) Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Converse, Stan Smiths and Vans are also not permitted.

If you are in any doubt about the style of school shoe the children may wear, please ask before purchasing to avoid wasting money on unsuitable choices.

 

Nail Varnish 

Nail varnish is not to be worn in school.

 

We ask that families teach their children how to get dressed, tie laces and tie the school tie when this is no longer elasticated.

 

Please make sure that you label ALL your child’s belongings and items of clothing! 

 

If you are struggling to locate the correct uniform, or you are struggling financially, then please speak to any member of staff, or email the school office, in confidence, and we will be happy to assist you in any way that we can.

 

Our school uniform stockists are Felix and Ricara in Littlehampton.

 

If you are struggling to afford school uniform, please speak in confidence to a member of school staff.
