At Walton on the Hill Primary School we believe that smart school uniform is an important element of what makes our school successful. By being smart and having respect for one’s appearance it will undoubtedly add to the positivity we experience in the classroom and around school. Our school uniform policy does not discriminate in any way based on gender, race, disability, sexual orientation or belief. We would never wish to suppress individuality but for the following reasons uphold the value of a whole school approach to uniform:
Why wear a Uniform?
- 'When we go on a school trip we all look the same and so can't get lost'.
- Stops kids worrying about what to wear each day.
- Everyone is equal.
- Parents don't have to shop for expensive and varied wardrobes for their children to keep up with or show-off to other children.
- Wearing a uniform instils a sense of pride and discipline in students
PE and leading a healthy lifestyle is a hugely important part of our school and our teachers will often lead a physical activity outside of the usual 'PE' days. As such we do ask that children have their PE kits in school every day. Additionally, we ask that children who have their ears pierced not only wear earrings inline with the school policy (simple gold or silver studs) but that they can take them out independently to allow them to fully engage with their curriculum entitlement. Below is our full PE Kit policy which outlines the expectations for all children.
