School Uniform

Children need to wear entirely black trainers / black shoes or ankle boots.
No heels, knee length boots or open toe shoes.
Children are still allowed to wear flat black shoes / boots. However the decision
has been made that entirely black trainers are allowed as part of everyday uniform
in order to support the Daily Mile. Trainers do need to be completely black with no
colour ticks / soles/ etc.

  • Allowed / Not allowed:
    Our Home School Agreement does state that parents are agreeing to follow the uniform
    policy in school.
    The majority of children do follow the guidelines below, however a small number of children
    are not appropriately dressed for school on occasions. Please do read through the
    information below.
    At High School children do receive sanctions / consequences for not wearing correct
    uniform. In order to prepare the children for this time they need to understand that it is an
    expectation to follow the rules here at Knutton St Marys too.
    Uniform Policy:
    Our school uniform is important to us. We believe that the wearing of a school uniform
    enables children to identify with their school, gives a sense of belonging, is practical and
    smart, reinforces a positive work ethos and reduces expenditure for parents/carers.
    Aims:
  •  All children wear the correct uniform to school
  •  Children feel proud to belong to the school
  •  Parents share the expectations of the school
    Guidelines:
  •  It is expected that children wear the school uniform each day
  •  If a child arrives at school wearing non uniform they will be expected to wear school
    uniform and this will be provided by the school for that day.
  •  Parents are asked to clearly label every item of school clothing with their child’s name.
  •  The children are responsible for taking care of their own items of uniform.
  •  There are lost property containers located in school. Any items left unclaimed are
    periodically displayed and then disposed of.
  •  If there is any reason why a child cannot wear our uniform, for example in the case of
    medical reasons, then the school will consider sympathetically any such request from a
    parent.
  •  Children should not wear nail varnish or make up in school.
  •  Jewellery On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in
    our school. The exceptions to this rule are one small pair of earring studs in pierced ears
    and a working watch.
  •  Hair The school does not permit children to have patterns, extensions or colouring in
    their hair. Hair which is longer than shoulder length, for either boys or girls, is advised
    to be tied back. Hair accessories such as hair slides or headbands must be small and
    need to be black or the school colours.
  •  If a child does not wear the correct uniform, a verbal or written reminder
    of our expectations will be communicated to the parents
  • DURING PE LESSONS HAIR MUST BE TIED BACK AND EARRINGS REMOVED
