Uniforms

At Carpenters Primary School we have adopted a school uniform, as we firmly believe that it fosters a feeling of belonging and encourages children to take pride in their school (it also helps avoid issues with designer clothes/footwear, competiveness and bullying).  We appreciate the support from parents and carers in ensuring their child wears the correct uniform every day.  The uniform is as follows:

Autumn/Winter:

  • Red sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan
  • White shirt/blouse/polo shirt
  • Grey or black trousers/skirt/pinafore dress
  • Black shoes (no trainers)

Spring/Summer:

  • Red sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan
  • Grey, knee length shorts/skirt
  • Red & white checked dress
  • Black shoes (no open toe sandals or flip flops)
 

PE Kit:

  • White t-shirt or polo shirt
  • Red or black shorts/plain tracksuit bottoms
  • Black plimsolls/trainers

Swimming Kit:

  • A swimming costume/ swimming shorts
  • Towel
  • Swimming hat
  • Goggles (if necessary)
 

It is essential that all children bring a separate PE kit to change into.  In order to ensure your child’s kit is in school at the correct time, parents/carers are encouraged to bring this into school at the beginning of each term and take home to be washed at the end of each half term.  If your child’s PE kit becomes dirty, we will send it home with them to be washed.  Alternatively, some parents/carers may want to take it home more frequently.  Please ensure the PE kit is brought to school each Monday and not taken home until Friday.

  • All items of clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
  • A lost property box is kept in the First Aid room.
  • No jewellery may be worn in school, except a watch.
  • Only small, stud earrings are allowed.
