Daily Kit List

School Uniform

 

There is a school uniform which we would encourage the children to wear.  We feel that it promotes a sense of identity within the school community, puts the children in the right frame of mind for working and creates a good impression when the school is seen in public.  Our school colours are blue, white, cream or grey.  Items of uniform that should be in plain colours are:

 

  • Shirt or blouse.
  • Skirt or trousers.
  • Sweatshirt/cardigan.
  • Grey or white socks.
  • Black or brown shoes.

(Please note that jeans, tracksuits, leggings, trainers, open-toe sandals and general sports kit are considered unsuitable for everyday school wear).

 

Sweatshirts and cardigans, embroidered with our school emblem can be purchased from ‘Skoolkit’ (http://www.skoolkit.co.uk/skoolkit_fareham.php) at 149, West Street, Fareham, PO16 0YA - Tel. 01329 822509 or ordered online from Tesco at https://www.tesco.com/direct/lee-on-the-solent-junior-school/7562.school?source=others. A full selection of uniform and PE kit in school colours is stocked. Skoolkit and Tesco also stock boys and girls polo shirts in plain blue or white, with the embroidered school logo. They are ideal for the warmer days without a sweatshirt.

 

All clothing and personal belongings should be clearly marked with your child's name. Items are left behind at school in ‘forgotten places’ every day. (Please read the ‘Lost Property’ paragraph on the next page).

 

PE Kit

       

  • Trainers for outdoor games
  • Plain coloured traditional shorts, preferably white, blue or grey
  • Plain coloured vest or T-shirt, preferably white or blue
  • A tracksuit is useful, especially during the winter
  • Named PE bag

It is important that the children change for PE and Games and that they dress correctly to demonstrate a sense of pride in our school and as a discipline.  Your co-operation in providing the above PE kit would be appreciated.

 

Sometimes PE or Games lessons have to be re-scheduled so it is important that your child keeps his/her kit at school all week.  It should be taken home each Friday and brought back on Mondays. (We are limited for cloakroom space in school and we would ask that the children only bring a bag suitable for their possessions. There is not the room for large sports kit bags).

 

Jewellery

 

The wearing of jewellery in school can be potentially dangerous so earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings are not allowed except in the following instances:

 

  • Medicare bracelets and necklaces are allowed.
  • A watch clearly marked with your child's name is allowed.

One pair of stud earrings may be worn but must be removed for all PE activities. Our school policy on this is in line with Hampshire Education Authority Health and Safety Guidelines.

 

Dress Code

 

In order to promote a focused, working environment, children are expected to dress appropriately for school. As part of our policy on uniform, children are not permitted to wear make-up or nail varnish. The style and colour of hair must not be taken to extremes of fashion:

 

  • Not shorter than a grade 2 cut.
  • One natural colour – no obvious colouring or bleaching.
  • No extremes of braiding, beading or extensions.

We appreciate the cooperation of the vast majority of parents who support us in this.

 

Art shirt

 

It is suggested that your child is provided with an overall e.g. a man's shirt, worn back to front, to protect clothing during practical activities.

 

Pencil Case

 

Children may bring a fully equipped pencil case into school. Please note that compasses are not permitted.
