In order to get 2019 off to a great start, we would like to remind you about our uniform and presentation expectations. They are in place to give us a sense of pride in our school as well as for practical and safety reasons.
Please could you ensure the following:
PE: Children must have their own PE kit in school. This should be plain dark shorts or joggers and a Baschurch PE t-shirt. We have a lot of children continuously borrowing from siblings or not having anything suitable to wear.
Jewellery: No jewellery is permitted in school. Children are NOT allowed to wear earrings of any kind, even studs. We find this very difficult to manage as teachers cannot remove earrings in school so we would appreciate your support with this.We are going to be very strict about this so children will be asked to remove earrings if they are seen in school. If they cannot take them out themselves, we will contact you to come and remove them for us. If your child is currently within 6 weeks of having them pierced please send in a letter stating the date they were pierced so that we are aware. Moving forward, new piercings should be arranged at the start of the summer holidays to avoid this. This rule has been in place for many years in line with the Corbet school policy and of course for safety reasons.
We don’t mind children wearing a watch or activity tracker, but the children do tend to take these on and off during the day and lose them, and some have games on which have become a bit of a distraction. Do not send your child in with anything valuable and make sure your child knows how to look after their watch.
Presentation: Children must tie their hair up for PE lessons, and at all times if long. Pictures of our uniform can be found on our website. Please ensure your child looks smart and has plain coloured socks and dark shoes to wear to school. If you have any problems or need any support with uniform, please contact the office. Our Friends (PTA) have large stocks of good quality second hand uniform if you would like to see any of that we can arrange it.
Many thanks for all your support with this.
