Uniform Policy

 

Uniform is worn at Wisewood to create an environment that focuses on school performance, not individual appearance.  The guidelines are intended to help parents make correct judgements about the school clothes and accessories to buy for their children.  Parents are responsible for following the guidelines of the uniform policy.  Clothing with the Wisewood School logo is available to order from the School Office. 

 

Overview and General Requirements

 

The approved uniform should be worn by all pupils during school hours.  The general rule is that pupils’ clothing at Wisewood Community Primary school should be appropriate for work at school.

 

The basic standard of clothing is -

  • Blue, red or white polo tops, blouses or tee shirts worn with a red or blue sweatshirt (with or without the school logo)
  • Dark blue or black bottoms – i.e. shorts, trousers or skirts
  • School dresses in red or blue
  • Shoes suitable for running around in, not high heels or wedges.

 

Clothing options and requirements -

 

The following provide guidelines and specific requirements of Wisewood’s standard dress code:

  • Clothes should be clean and neat at all times;
  • All clothing must be size appropriate for the pupil.  Baggy pants are not acceptable;
  • Sweatshirts should be red or blue – with or without the school logo;
  • No names, logos or pictures are allowed on sweatshirts or tee shirts except for the school logo;
  • Football shirts should not be worn for school;
  • Shoes should be appropriate for classroom and playtime activities.  Flip-flops, high heels, wedges and shoes without support are not acceptable;
  • Make-up and nail polish are not allowed.
  • Pupils must not wear jewellery to school.  Children with pierced ears should only have one stud earring on each ear.  If children are having their ears pierced it should be at the start of the long summer holiday.  Earrings should always be removed for PE lessons.  If pupils are unable to remove their earrings due to an exceptional circumstance (such as infection), a teacher may provide them with some Micropore tape to cover the piercing.  This decision will be at the teacher’s discretion and based on health and safety considerations.  This solution would only be allowed on a short term basis.
  • Hats may be worn outside.  They should never be worn in school.

 

Policy regarding hair

 

Hair should be neat and tidy.  We recommend that long hair is tied back to avoid the transfer of head lice.  Long hair must always be tied back for PE lessons.  Pupils should not have any extreme hairstyles.  We would suggest that an extreme hairstyle would be something that would not be acceptable in a professional work place.

 

School clothing assistance policy

 

Parents are encouraged to contact the Headteacher or Learning Mentor if there is a financial hardship to purchase uniform.   Wisewood Community Primary School maintains a uniform Store where used clothing can be purchased.  Families are encouraged to help by donating outgrown school clothing which is still in good condition.

 

Sanctions

 

Children who wear inappropriate clothing for school will be reminded of the school code of dress and expected to be in school the following day in appropriate clothes.  If a pupil continues to wear inappropriate clothing a letter will be sent to parents asking for their support in this matter.  If pupils are consistently arriving at school without school uniform, they may be provided with spare uniform to wear during the school day.
