The Governors of Thornton Primary School have decided that there is an expectation that children will wear school uniform for the following reasons:
The basic and other acceptable items of school uniform are listed below.
Sweatshirt in royal blue Sweatshirt or Cardigan in royal blue with
with embroidered badge embroidered badge
Shirt, Polo or T-shirt White/blue blouse, polo shirt or T-shirt
(white/blue) Grey or dark skirt, pinafore dress or trousers
Grey or dark trousers Summer uniform: Blue check/striped dresses
The following items are NOT considered appropriate school wear:
Jeans, football shirts/shorts, designer shoes or clothing, e.g. high heels, platform-soled shoes, crop tops, shoe string strapped tops, etc. some of these are not only immodest, but also unsafe.
ALL CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR SHOULD BE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH THE CHILD’S NAME
Outdoor Black Shoes for both boys and girls
Indoor Black Shoes for both boys and girls (Plimsolls acceptable – these stay in school)
High heeled shoes or thigh length boots are not suitable for wearing in school, under any circumstances. Staff must also think about the appropriateness of the shoes they wear.
School uniform can be ordered directly from our current supplier Just Schoolwear at http://www.just-schoolwear.co.uk/shop/Thornton-Community-Primary-School.html Delivery of your items can then be made either to your home address or to the school. Delivery to school is free of charge but not to home. P.E Bags and Book bags are kept in stock at school and can be ordered through the school office.
Nail varnish, make up and tattoo transfers are not permitted.
If possible, pupils should not wear jewellery of any kind. Wrist watches, however, are permitted.
Children with pierced ears may wear post and simple stud type earrings only. All ear decorations and watches must be removed for Physical Education lessons. In the rare circumstances that children cannot remove earrings they will need to wear tape to cover them safely.
It is expected that children in Years 3 to 6 will remove their own jewellery prior to a P.E. lesson. As it is unlikely that infant children can remove their own earrings, these children should not wear earrings to school on days when they have P.E. and, preferably, not at all on school days. Staff will not be responsible for bathing ears, removing or replacing earrings. Other forms of jewellery, e.g. necklaces or rings, may constitute a safety hazard and, therefore, will not be permitted.
