Uniform

The school colours are royal blue and grey and the school uniform gives the children a sense of pride and belonging and avoids fashion competitiveness.  All children are expected to wear school uniform and we are grateful for your support in this matter.

The Infant School jumper, cardigan, polo shirt, book bag and sun hat and the Junior School jumper, cardigan, tie and PE T-shirt are all available from the Truetex Schoolwear shop on Bartholomew Street in Newbury.

Infant School Boys: Boys wear grey long/short trousers, school jumper, white or school polo shirt, grey socks and black shoes.

Infant School Girls: Girls wear grey skirt or trousers, school cardigan or jumper, white or school polo shirt, grey or white socks or tights, and black shoes.  In the summer term, they may wear blue and white checked dresses.

Junior School Boys: Boys wear grey long/short trousers, school jumper, white shirt (long or short sleeved), school tie, black or grey socks, and black shoes.  Children coming from John Rankin Infant and Nursery School may continue to wear their old uniform until they grow out of it.

Junior School Girls: Girls wear grey skirt or trousers (preferably straight legged, tailored trousers, not the stretchy bootleg type), school cardigan, white revere blouse (long or short sleeved), black, grey or white socks or tights, and black shoes.  In the summer, they may wear blue and white checked dresses.  Children coming from John Rankin Infant and Nursery School may continue to wear their old uniform until they grow out of it.

Footwear: All children need to wear sensible and smart black school shoes (no trainers, platform or heels).

PE Kit: It is a requirement of the National Curriculum that all children change for PE.  It is helpful if parents provide a drawstring bag in which the PE kit is kept throughout the week.  This should be brought in on Mondays and taken home for washing at the end of the week.  Ear studs should be removed or covered with sticking plaster for PE.  Please provide a suitable container, or a stock of plasters.

Infant School PE Kit: Navy blue shorts, white T-shirt and plimsolls (not trainers).

Junior School PE Kit: White shorts, white T-shirt (school T-Shirt is optional) and trainers.  Tracksuits may be worn for outside games in the colder weather.  Children coming from John Rankin Infant and Nursery School may continue to wear their old PE kit until they grow out of it.

Water Bottles: Children should have access to drinking water throughout the day so please could you provide a named water bottle that should be taken home and washed/refilled each evening.  Thank you.

Jewellery: Children should not wear jewellery to school.  However, children with pierced ears may wear studs.  Watches may also be worn, but it is the child’s responsibility to look after his/her property.  Makeup (including nail varnish), dyed hair and “extreme” haircuts and not allowed in school.

Outdoor Wear: Children play outside in a variety of weather conditions so please ensure that they have coat, waterproofs, hat/gloves/scarf, wellingtons and sun hat as appropriate.

Book Bags/Rucksacks: We recommend that children bring a book bag or rucksack to school.  These are helpful for transferring letters and books to and from school.

Art: At the Junior School, please include an old shirt in the PE bag for use as an art overall.

Care: Please can you ensure that you clearly name all items of clothing and property as this makes it easier to return lost items.  Thank you.
