DRESS AND EQUIPMENT
We expect the children to be smartly dressed in our school uniform - a polo shirt and/or school sweatshirt or cardigan with our school logo on them. We ask that children wear grey or black uniform-style skirts, shorts, trousers, pinafores. In the warmer months, some pupils choose to wear a gingham dress in the jade green colour. A waterproof jacket/warmer coat is required depending on the season.
Sam Scott’s in Penrith has an online shop with free delivery.
Footwear: Children should wear black shoes that they can put on and take off themselves. Separate sports shoes are required for P.E. Sensible sandals are permitted in the summer but we ask that these are well-covered for safety reasons. Mules, flip-flops, crocs and high heels are not appropriate for school wear, similarly for health and safety. We ask that children have indoor and outdoor shoes. Outdoor shoes can simply be their outdoor PE shoes so there is no requirement to purchase extra shoes. This is so we can keep the inside building as clean as possible and avoid slippy wet floors.
Wellingtons: Because we want your child/ren to have full access to our outdoor space, we ask that you provide a pair of wellies that are stored on a covered rack outside the classrooms. Please ask we do have lots of spares and usually, families are happy to 'recycle' them.
PE Kit: In addition, each child needs a drawstring P.E. bag with either dark (black/navy or grey) shorts/ skort and a lime green Bolton T-shirt (also available from Sam Scott’s) and navy or black/grey bottoms. Plimsolls or trainers are required. For outdoor PE, plimsolls are not suitable. In colder months, children will also need a sweatshirt and tracksuit top/ jogging bottoms/leggings for outdoor P.E (preferably in black or navy blue). Lime-green hoodies are available from Sam Scott's that can be embroidered with the logo etc.
It is expected that the P.E. bag stays in school and goes home occasionally for washing. Please ensure that all items of school clothing and P.E. items are clearly marked with your child’s name. We encourage the use of the embroidering of names service on all school clothing that is available from Sam Scott’s.
We believe that it is important that our children look just as smart in their PE kits as in their uniforms. Having a clear PE kit means that our children always have the right items for representing the school in tournaments and are easily identifiable.
For KS2: Football / Tag-Rugby boots are also required (which must have rounded studs, not “blades” and shin-pads (football only) which are also essential for those taking part in competitive matches with other schools. Please note that the school operates a very well-stocked spare boot box. Children are welcome to 'borrow' a suitable pair and then return them after use. We encourage parents to donate to this box once their child has out-grown a pair of boots.
Hair and Jewellery: Long hair must be tied back with a hair tie or bobble should be provided from home. Children are discouraged from wearing jewellery, except a watch. Children with pierced ears must remove the studs or cover with tape/plaster themselves which is provided by home and must be taped before school, if the child is unable to apply it themeslves.
Uniform Update during shop closures:
Sam Scotts is still unsure how long social distancing measures will be in place and their shop is currently closed. Due to this uncertainty, they are putting in measures to provide a full service while they are closed.
