At Grange pupils are expected to present themselves and wear their school uniform with pride. Our uniform is a mark of our school’s identity and it has been chosen with comfort and practicality in mind.
The following items may be ordered from the school office and collected on a Wednesday afternoon:
The majority of our uniform may be purchased from any chain store, shop or supermarket which sells school clothing.
*Shoes should be, as far as possible, plain, flat and sturdy. Children need to be able to walk, run and climb safely. Shoes need to have buckles, velcro fastenings or laces. Children cannot wear high heeled shoes, open toed shoes or flip flops for health and safety reasons.
If children wear boots or wellington boots to school, they should bring alternative shoes to change into. We have many stairs at Grange and boots are not safe for indoor wear.
No jewellery should be worn, apart from one pair of stud earrings in the ears. Loop earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings are unsafe in places where groups of children need to take exercise and climb apparatus. Older children who can tell the time may wear a watch, which must be removed for PE. School cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage.
Long hair should be tied back. Hijabs should be worn in plain colours such as white, black or navy blue. Parents are requested to ensure that their children have sensible haircuts. Guidance may be sought from the leadership team as to what a sensible haircut may mean. Patterns cut into hair are not permitted.
PE kit must be brought to school every Monday and taken home for washing every Friday. Children need tee shirt and shorts or tracksuit trousers, a sweatshirt for colder weather (no hooded tops) and trainers or plimsolls. Football boots must not be worn.
It is important that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name, including coats and P.E. kits. This can be done with sew in tapes or with an indelible pen.
Sun hats or warm winter headwear may be worn and indeed we recommend both as and when appropriate.
Children should not wear nail varnish to school, for health and safety reasons, as the nail bed is an area first aiders may need to check if there is any injury to the hand or arm. Make up is not permitted.
