The Emmaville Primary School uniform can be purchased from the school supplier Salto . In order to be consistent with colours, purchases from Salto would be the preferred option. However uniform can be purchased from other suppliers, apart from Salto, as long as they reflect the appropriate school colours as identified within our School Uniform Policy. All articles of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name:-
- Dark purple sweatshirt or sweatshirt cardigan (not knitted), preferably with school logo
- Light grey polo shirt, preferably with school logo
- Grey school trousers or shorts (not black)
- Grey straight or pleated school skirt or grey pinafore dress (no culottes or skorts)
- In summer, purple checked (not striped) dress (no play-suits)
- Grey or white socks, or grey tights (not white, black or purple)
- Black, smartly kept shoes
- Long hair should be tied back for safety reasons. Ribbons, bobbles, hair bands and slides should be small and simple in style and only in the school colours of purple or grey.
- We would recommend that the outer garment of a child’s clothing has the school logo on. For example if a child comes to school wearing only a polo shirt then it would be preferable if it contained the logo. However it is not expected that the summer dresses have the logo on them.
- Plain white PE shirt (with or without school logo but no other logos)
- Black PE shorts (no logo)
- Black plimsolls for indoor use
- Plain black track suit or plain black joggers and black hooded top for outdoor use
- Trainers for outdoor use
- Bag (clearly labeled with child’s name)
- Above the knee swimming trunks/shorts
- One piece swimming costume
- Hairbrush or comb
- Goggles (optional)
Plain swimming hats, as appropriate
Purple reading book bags will be provided for pupils in Reception Class and in Key Stage 1.
Children in Key Stage 2 should bring a suitable bag to school in which to put their homework and reading book.
Children should dress appropriately for extreme weather conditions. In the summer it is vital that children have a protective sun hat or cap. Sun cream should be applied to children before they arrive at school on hot summer days. Boots and sufficiently warm waterproof coats should be provided in extremely wet or snowy weather.
As outdoor play is a vital part of the Early Years curriculum, the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage should be dressed appropriately for all kinds of weather. Although we have shelters, it is important to provide an appropriate raincoat for wet and cold days. Waterproof trousers, hats, gloves and Wellington boots would also be items of clothing that we recommend could be provided for the children.
In order to return lost property, all uniform, including shoes, PE kits and personal items should be clearly marked with the child’s name.
