NOTICE TO PARENTS:

Orders MUST be placed by Friday 7th August 2015 for delivery before the start of the new academic year.

Uniform

It is part of our School Uniform Policy that all children wear the school uniform. It sets a good tone and standard in addition to identifying the school and promoting our uniqueness.

All compulsory items bearing the embroidered school logo must be purchased from Brigade Clothing via their online service called PARENTS DIRECT. The school does not take orders for uniform and does not hold any stock of uniform items.

Items listed below that do not specify a school logo (e.g: white polo) may be obtained from either our supplier or a supplier of your choice.

Shoes should be black in colour. They must be practical and give good protection to the toes; sandals are not permitted. Socks must be worn even during summer and they should be black or grey in colour. White ventilated summer socks are available from high street stores and these are recommended to be worn during hot weather. Pinafore dresses and skirts must fall below the knee.

Pupils who arrive at school in breach of the School Uniform Policy will be referred to the Principal for consideration and may be sent home to change, or their parents/carers may be contacted, depending upon the age of the child.

(Further details will be sent to all parents/carers who have accepted the offer of a school placement)

What these look like

Avanti Schools Uniform - Reception–Year 3

Book Bags and Home School Books/Planners

Children need a school book bag with our logo in the primary phase. This develops positive and organised attitudes to reading and being prepared for school. The book bag must be brought to school and taken home each day, along with their Home School Books.

 

PE Kit

Children need a change of clothing for Physical Education; this should include blue shorts, white T-shirt, black plimsols, trainers, navy blue jogging bottoms and a warm top. Learning to change out of uniform and into a PE kit is an important learning task for our younger children. It also creates a growing self-awareness of what is appropriate in different settings.

 

Labelling Your Child's Uniform

It is vital that all children are able to locate their own property as it facilitates early reading skills, independence and self-esteem. Please ensure that all your child's clothing and property including shoes are clearly labelled. Your child's name should appear in lower case letters, with the first letter of their name/surname in capitals.

The most appropriate option is to purchase pre-printed iron-on name labels which will last throughout your child's school years and are easily available online. If you are not purchasing pre-printed labels, then your child’s first name must be clearly handwritten with a black, permanent marker pen onto iron-on name labels.
