School Uniform

Emmbrook Junior School children have an excellent reputation for looking smart in their uniform. We are proud of our children and hope that you will help us maintain this high standard as it is important that your child is dressed appropriately and smartly at all times.

We strongly recommend that all clothing and kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name. Name labels can be purchased via https://www.mynametags.com/affiliate?id=18970, however it is not a requirement that you use this supplier or any other but we do suggest that everything is clearly labelled.

Our pupils may choose to wear:

  • Grey or black trousers / knee-length shorts / knee-length skirt / pinafore- dress, culottes
  • Knee-length summer green & white checked dress
  • White polo shirt / blouse / short/long-sleeved shirt with school tie
  • Dark green V-necked jumper / sweatshirt / cardigan (school logo preferred)
  • Black or white socks
  • Dark green, grey or black tights
  • Sensible black shoes which provide a good grip and fasten securely

We do not allow our pupils to wear:

  • Trainer socks
  • Open toed sandals
  • Boots
  • Trainers for anything other than outdoor activities

All types of shirt are to be tucked in at all times. In the event of hot weather, the Head Teacher may make the decision, on a day-to-day basis, to allow the pupils to remove their school ties and undo the top button of their shirts and leave their shirts untucked.

Jewellery:

  • If a pupil has pierced ears, only plain gold or silver studs can be worn. (For safety, these have to be removed during PE. If the pupil cannot remove the earrings, you must provide them with protective tape to be applied for PE lessons.)
  • We also allow pupils to wear watches, but again these must be removed for PE.
  • Any other jewellery, including religious adornments, should not be worn in school.
  • We do not take responsibility for the loss or damage of any items of jewellery in school.

Our PE Kit:

All pupils should have:

  • Plain green T-shirt (with school logo preferred)
  • Plain black shorts
  • Plain black tracksuit bottoms
  • Dark green V-necked jumper / sweatshirt / cardigan (school logo preferred)
  • Trainers which provide a good grip and fasten securely for the sake of the pupil’s safety.

We do not allow our pupils to wear:

  • Plimsolls

PE Kit should be worn to school on the day that your child has PE. Each Year group will share which days they have PE during their welcome meetings in September. Any changes due to events will be emailed in advance.

Religious or Cultural Requirements:

We are always happy to accommodate adaptations to our uniform policy for pupils whose religion or cultural background requires them to wear certain items of dress. Where relevant (and if possible), the colour of any such items should be dark green, black or grey to match the school colours. Headscarves and hijabs may be worn but we respectfully ask that these should be removed for PE unless your child has reached puberty.

Hair:

  • All pupils must tie their hair back for school if it is long enough to do so. (Hair that touches the pupil’s shoulders, or longer, is considered long enough to be tied back.)
  • Hair accessories; slides, scrunchies and bands are to be dark green, black or white.
  • Extreme hairstyles and unnatural hair colours are not acceptable for the pupils to have in school.

Make-up:

  • No make-up, including nail varnish, should be worn to school.
  • Temporary tattoos are also unacceptable.
