Lionel Primary School Uniform Policy

Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform:
We rely on parents/carers to support the school and co-operate with governors and staff by following our uniform policy and sending their children to school correctly dressed. We encourage parents/carers to contact the school it they are unsure about any aspect of the policy or if they are having difficulty in abiding by it for any reason.
Children should wear the following items:
Children must wear black shoes for school. Shoes must be plain black and without logos or coloured soles.
In the summer closed toe sandals may be worn with socks. Sandals should be in plain navy, black or white.
In the winter plain black boots may be worn.
Children should have available as a separate set of clothes to change into for PE/games lesson, as follows:
Hair and headwear
If hair is long enough, it must be tied back with a simple inconspicuous hair band. Large bows and ornate headbands are not permitted.
Hijabs must be blue, black, yellow or white and should be free of adornments.

Children must not wear SMART watches in school. If a child comes into school wearing a SMART watch the teacher will keep it safe until a parent comes and collects it.
Children should not wear jewellery to school. An exception will be made for pierced ears (small studs only may be worn for safety reasons) or if the jewellery is of a religious or medical significance. Please see your child’s class teacher if this is the case.
