Uniform

School uniform

It is our policy that all children must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. It is expected that uniform will also be worn when pupils are representing the school, including school visits and sporting fixtures, whether or not these are in school hours.

Wearing school uniform helps children to feel part of our school community.  It promotes co-operation and a sense of school identity and we expect all children to wear the correct uniform with pride.

The Role of Parents

We expect all parents who send their children to Southgate Primary School, to adhere to the schools uniform policy. Parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. Parents should ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and is well presented. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities and if there are genuine reasons (for example religious objections, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform) the school will look sympathetically at such requests. Similarly, should an item of school uniform prove problematic for a child with disabilities then parents are invited to draw this to the attention of the Headteacher. Any non-compliance with the schools uniform policy will result in a sanction as directed by the Headteacher.
 

The Role of Governors

The Governing Body supports the Headteacher in implementing the school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding this policy, and liaises with the Headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.  The Governors take responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all national regulations concerning equal opportunities, and that our school uniform policy is consistent with our policy on equal opportunities. Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.
 

Southgate school uniform

Our school colours are navy blue and yellow, and the uniform is as follows:

Boys 
Grey trousers, (grey shorts may be worn in summer)
Yellow logo polo shirt
Navy blue logo sweatshirt or navy blue logo fleece (may be worn in the winter)
Dark socks

Black school shoes

Ordering school uniform

All school uniform items are available to purchase online through Brigade or via the Tesco website. We also have a small stock of some items in the school office.
 

Coats

When they need to be worn, should be of a plain colour and style compatible with school uniform and student safety. It is recommended that detachable luminous strips and/or arm bands are used by cyclists in the winter months.  In extreme weather children are permitted to wear appropriate clothing e.g. boots but will be expected to change once in school.
 

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears and watches. We ask the children to remove these objects during PE and games. All children are expected to remove their earrings irrespective of whether they have been recently pierced. Parents should also be aware that temporary tattoos, nail varnish and make-up are not permitted in school.
 

Hair

All children, girls and boys, are requested to tie hair up with a plain hair band in keeping with the school colours (where it is long enough to do so). If wearing a head band these should be plain and in keeping with the school colours. We expect that hair should be neat and tidy and worn with no extremes of style or colour (e.g. tram-lines, mohicans, or use of hair colourants or dyes). If you are unsure please check prior to making any changes. 

Items not considered school uniform

To ensure the school uniform policy is clear, it should be noted that the following items are not considered school uniform:

  • Trainers of any colour

  • Van shoes

  • Hoodies of any colour

  • Hats of any type (e.g. balaclava-style hats, baseball hats)
