Our children wear their school uniform with pride. Our suppliers are Vortex Clothing. Orders can be made directly from their website at https://www.vortexschoolwear.co.uk
The aim of the school is to have pupils dress with a school identity in a smart, affordable and practical way, which conforms to standards of decency and safety and enables all pupils to be seen and therefore treated equally. The school uniform shows that pupils belong to our school community and should be worn with pride. School Uniform is a requirement for being part of our school and is compulsory for all pupils.
The school expects all parents who accept a place at Parson Cross C of E Primary School to comply with compulsory school uniform standards. All items of school uniform must be clearly named.
The uniform is:
School polo shirts, sweat shirts, cardigans and school bags should all show the school logo and are available from school.
Asda, Primark, Matalan, Tesco and M&S all generally provide a range of school items which do not require the school logo and are in line with the school’s uniform policy. If you are unsure that the type purchased is correct for school please contact the school office.
Children are allowed to wear:
No other jewellery is allowed.
The parent/carer of any pupil with a genuine reason for not wearing an item of uniform must inform the school outlining the reason and agree a date when the pupil will be wearing the correct uniform.
If no communication is received the pupil will be given pumps, polo shirt or sweat cardigan etc. to change into and parents will be contacted.
If the issue is not resolved then the parent will be asked to meet with the Headteacher and a Governor.
We recognise that it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their child(ren) is wearing correct uniform. However, where it becomes apparent that the child is refusing to comply with the uniform standards they will be given items to change into and given the opportunity to rectify the matter within an agreed time scale – normally 1 week. If the matter is not resolved then the pupil will lose their recreational time. However, where it is apparent that there is serious flagrant refusal to follow uniform policy then this will result in internal seclusion and ultimately exclusion.
Periodic uniform checks will be carried out. If a child’s uniform does not meet the standards outlined in this policy parents/carers will be informed by a letter which will identify the reason(s) and there will then be a second check a few days later. We will always try to act in a reasonable manner and involve parents at an early stage. At the end of the year all children who have met the correct standards throughout the year will receive a certificate.
In the interests of fairness and consistency across the school, please accept the Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher’s decision on all uniform matters.
