The school encourages the wearing of school colours as it increases the corporate feeling within the school. This view is supported by parents. The uniform includes the following:
Boys: Grey trousers (or shorts during the first three years), a white shirt or polo shirt, grey or green pullover/sweatshirt and flat black shoes.
Girls: Grey or green skirt or pinafore dress, white blouse or polo shirt, grey or green pullover/sweatshirt or cardigan and flat black shoes.
As an alternative to a skirt girls may wear TAILORED GREY TROUSERS (not black leggings or black trousers please).
The uniform usually includes green and white striped or checked summer dresses for the girls during the summer months.
The governors actively discourage the wearing of bright multi-coloured T-shirts and football shirts for P.E.
The school has a uniform supplier, Frank Harrison, Kershaw’s Garden Shopping Centre,Halifax Road, Brighouse. Items can also be purchased from other major retail outlets. Jewellery is not suitable wear for school especially dangling earrings, necklaces etc. which are dangerous in playground situations. We therefore ask you not to allow your child to come to school wearing jewellery.
For Games and P.E. etc.Indoor – T-shirt and shorts or leotard.Outdoor – T-shirt with shorts or games skirt, with a change of footwear and socks. Track suits are useful in very cold weather or for ‘warm up’ exercises.
Fashion wear and designer shorts are not appropriate wear. Children often find some football kit useful from about the age of 8 or 9. This is not always essential for games lessons, but it is often needed for those wishing to join the football club.PE is sometimes done in pumps and sometimes in bare feet.
For craft, art, cookery - some form of protective clothing, for example an old shirt, is useful.It is important to name all garments especially those likely to be removed, for example in PE – e.g. coats, shirts, dresses, socks etc.
For this purpose we strongly recommend the sew-intype of labels but there are other methods (laundry markers etc.). Please also name Wellington boots and if possible send a named peg to clip them together, pumps, shoes,sandals - so many of them look alike!
As the children reach their final years with us they often like to bring bags to school containing games equipment etc. Most of our cloakroom areas are unsuitable for storing large sports bags and we ask you, please, to restrict the size of your child’s bag to 40-45 cm(16-18”).
