Blackwell School has a school uniform, which is strongly supported by parents, children, staff and Governors. The uniform is as follows:
Sweatshirt / Jumper / Cardigan -Royal Blue
Skirt/Pinafore /Trouser/ Shorts- Plain grey or Black
Shirt / Blouse / T- Shirt -Plain White, Gold or Royal Blue
Socks / Tights -White, Navy, Grey or Black
Shoes -Black, sensible.
We consider extreme hairstyles to be inappropriate for school, examples of this are: bright hair dye colours, cuts less than grade 3 and patterns such as zigzags. We feel this detracts from children's learning and therefore parents will be called if we feel a hairstyle is inappropriate.
In summer the colours remain the same, but if parents prefer to dress girls in cotton dresses (plain, checked or striped), then these will look equally smart. All children need a change of clothes for PE and games, consisting of black shorts or PE skirt, and white, yellow or blue T-shirt. Soft-soled plimsolls are required for indoor PE. Trainers may be worn for outdoor lessons and tracksuits are useful in cold weather. Please provide a named drawstring bag for PE and games.
Children are not allowed to wear nail varnish or jewellery in school. Watches must be removed for PE and swimming. If your child has pierced ears only stud earrings are acceptable.
To help avoid problems with lost property, please ensure that all clothing is marked with your child’s name. If your child loses anything, please check with your child’s class teacher. No responsibility will be taken by the school for the loss of items or valuables. Toys, games, money or mobile phones should not be brought to school.
We like all children to go out and play every day as they need a break and an opportunity to run about and play games with their friends. Therefore, during the winter months children will need to bring a warm coat every day. Children should wear wellies in very wet or snowy weather.
All school uniform including fleeces, coats and P.E. kit are available from the school office along with book bags and caps.
