St Andrew's Junior School Hatfield Peverel

School Uniform

General Appearance

We expect our children to come appropriately dressed and well-presented for school.  School uniform and dress codes play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school and setting the appropriate tone.  A common approach for all in uniform and appearance instils pride; supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils.  The Government Department for Education “strongly encourages schools to have a uniform” and for “schools to have a very clear position about appearance such as hair colour, style and length and the wearing of jewellery and make-up.”(DfE 2010).  We hope that parents will join governors and staff in up-holding the high standards we expect of our children in this regard.

Jewellery should not be worn to school. The exceptions are a watch, which may be worn at the child’s own risk, and studs for those children who normally wear earrings. The official instructions from the County Council Safety Officer are that watches and earrings must be removed for games, P.E., and swimming (this includes ear hole retainers and stretchers). Children who cannot remove their earrings cannot do P.E. and as taking part in P.E. is a legal requirement parents must ensure that earrings can be removed or they should not be worn on P.E. days. Teachers cannot be held responsible for the safety of these items.

Hair and Make-up

As a school, we follow the Halo Code (see below). Long hair (girls and boys) should be tied back at all times to enable pupils to have clear vision as they work in class and in P.E. Hair should be of a natural colour and headscarves should be in keeping with our school colours (red, black or grey). Make-up should not be worn, including nail varnish and tattoos/transfers.
