“We aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”

Uniform

At Foljambe Primary School, we believe that our children should be able to wear uniform that is affordable. Whilst branded items are available, these are not compulsory and parents/carers are free to purchase uniform from any suitable retailer.

We have a school uniform which all children should wear. It consists of:

  • Black jumper / cardigan (school logo is optional)
  • Purple polo shirt
  • Plain black trousers / skirt (no leggings)
  • Flat plain black shoes with black laces / velcro

 

We ask that all clothing is clearly marked with the child’s name, as a safeguard against problems arising from children having similar clothing.

 

PE Kit

For reasons of basic health and hygiene it is important that all children have a change of clothes and footwear for PE and games.

This should be:

  • A plain white t-shirt (round neck)
  • Plain black PE shorts
  • A plain black or navy tracksuit is essential for outdoor games lessons which take place at ALL times during the school year (no leggings)
  • Trainers or pumps

 

Valuables and Jewellery

Valuables should not be brought to school. The wearing of jewellery is discouraged in school, especially pierced earrings. Children who are wearing jewellery will not be allowed to participate in PE lessons. Jewellery and clothing worn as part of religious beliefs also need to meet the standards and if not, will be discussed with families. Pupils may be able to take part in PE wearing small ear studs, which need to be taped before school / by the child (at the discretion of the Sports Coach or Teacher).

Watches may be worn.

The wearing of nail varnish is not encouraged.

 

Uniform Suppliers

In order to assist parents and pupils in complying with the school’s uniform policy, we have identified the following recommended suppliers who we feel represent quality and value for money.

Uniform with school logo can be purchased from:

  • Jonny D’s in Rotherham Market
  • Pinders, Rotherham town centre
  • myclothing.com

 

Examples of stores which stock appropriate uniform items are:

  • Asda
  • Marks & Spencer
  • Tesco

 

If further clarification is required on any point in this policy, then please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.

Uniform Bank Colour logo

At a time when a lot of families are tightening their belts, we’re aware that many could benefit from a little extra support when it comes to buying school uniforms and other essentials – such as coats and PE kits – that children need for school. That’s why we’ve created a Trust-wide Uniform Bank of good quality, new and used items – providing a sustainable way to recycle and repurpose school uniforms.
