School Uniform Guidelines
Both Governors and staff would like to stress how much importance we attach to the wearing of school uniform, it certainly helps foster a sense of belonging and helps children be ready to complete their school work. The children feel proud and develop a sense of belonging when wearing the school uniform.
School Uniform: School book bags, sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and t-shirts bearing Edward the Elder school logo are available for purchase from www.crestedschoolwear.co.uk Alternatively, non-logo uniform can be purchased from a variety of shops and supermarkets.
Jewellery and Valuables: Children should not wear jewellery of any kind in school, with the exception of small plain studs if children have pierced ears, but we would request they are removed or covered, before a child is allowed to participate in swimming, games or PE. We cannot stress the importance of this rule; so many accidents are caused when children are wearing jewellery such as necklaces and rings. Members of staff do not take responsibility for the safekeeping of jewellery of any kind. Valuables and personal possessions should not be brought into school, everything children require to work at school will be provided and so nothing extra is required. Things can go missing and often cause problems; swaps etc. and much time is wasted sorting things out.
Physical Education for Boys and Girls: PE plays an important part of the school curriculum; this kit will be used for gymnastics and dance in the hall. Children should also bring in a separate sweatshirt, black tracksuit/bottoms and trainers during colder months. These should be clearly labelled with the children’s names and preferably kept in a pump bag which can be kept in school.
*Please can parents/carers ensure all individual items of clothing are all named and labelled clearly with their child’s name.
