For all pupils the school uniform is a white shirt or polo shirt, plain red jumper or cardigan, black or grey trousers or skirt, red checked dress. These may be with or without school logos. All footwear to be plain black shoes or plain black trainers.
We respectfully request parent co-operation that children do not wear any clothes or footwear with logos on for school apart from the school badge. We believe that it is important that all our children feel equally valued and respected regardless of their clothing. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
How To Order
School uniform with school logos can be purchased directly from a local company Cre8ive at www.cocktonhill.cre8ivegraphics.co.uk or by phone on 01388 664097. They also have a Facebook page with more information on ordering.
For the safety and comfort of all children we ask that full fastening strong, sturdy, flat shoes or trainers without logos are worn for school including outdoor play. School shoes should not have a heel higher than 2.5cm in height for health and safety reasons. In the summer months we require all pupils to wear full shoes – following a number of accidents in schools, the Local Authority health and safety team advises that open toed sandals are not permitted for safety reasons.
Please be aware that your child may engage in vigorous play and therefore strong outdoor shoes are required that do not slip off. When wearing wellies or boots to school we request children bring alternative footwear for indoor use – either shoes or full slippers (not novelty types) or plimsolls. Boots and wellies are uncomfortable for a full days wear and your child will be required to wear alternative footwear. As most of the school is carpeted we ask that muddy shoes are not brought into school.
For reasons of health and safety and in line with the Local Authority policy, jewellery is not worn for school with the exception of a small plain ear studs which the child must be able to remove for lessons unaided. Plain watches are allowed.
As an online 360 safe accredited school we have updated our uniform policy with advice on the role of smart watches is school. Governors have agreed, as part of the uniform policy, to amend the policy as follows to ensure that children are safe when in school from messaging, notifications and cameras whilst they are learning:
“Pupils are permitted to wear a watch that counts their steps and is digital. Watches that send and receive messages, calls or notification must have this feature disabled in line with our online safety policy. Watches with cameras are not permitted. Any pupils, where learning is disrupted or they put themselves or others at risk with their use of their watch, will have the watch removed and collected by an adult.”
Plain black shorts or bottoms and a plain red or white T-shirt without logos. All footwear to be flat plain black plimsolls or trainers. Children must bring a change of PE shoes as part of their kit. During the colder months it is advisable to send a change of sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms without logos for outside games. Sometimes pupils walk to other venues and track suits without logos are beneficial. Plimsolls or trainers are suitable for outside activities but plimsolls are preferred.
