Uniform and Rationale
A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all members of the school community at all times and the uniform policy for pupils plays a key part in helping us to achieve this. We are proud of our school uniform and encourage children to also feel proud of belonging to Lympne Church of England Primary School. We positively encourage our children to take responsibility for their personal appearance.
As such we believe that a school uniform:
- Promotes a sense of pride in the school.
- Engenders a feeling of community and belonging.
- Is practical, simple and smart.
- Identifies the children with the school.
- Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
It is our school policy that all pupils must wear:
- School round neck logo jumper
- School logo cardigan
- School polo shirt with logo
- Grey trousers/skirt/shorts
- Grey/green/black tights or white, grey, black socks with skirts
- Grey/dark coloured socks with trousers
- White socks with summer dresses
- Plain Black shoes – without heels, without open toes, not trainers or boots.
Additional optional items are available from School Trends:
No shorts or summer dresses over the winter period please from Term 2-4 (November – end of March)
- Plimsolls or trainers.
- Team T-shirt – Red, Blue, Green, Yellow
- Black/Dark shorts.
- Plain dark tracksuit in the winter.
- While pupils should bring in the correct PE kit – no child will miss out on PE because they have not got the correct kit.
No jewellery is permitted to be worn in school except a watch (not smart watches). These should be removed for PE.
Earrings may be worn but must be plain studs and must be taped up for PE or removed. Hoops or other earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings etc. are not to be worn.
We expect all children to have a suitable haircut for primary school.
Where a child has long hair we expect it to be tied back with a simple plain hair band/ small plain green/grey bow- not a head scarf- (unless for religious reasons.)
Patterns, shapes, lines etc are not permitted, neither are extreme hairstyles such as Mohicans or colour.
Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school ethos and values. The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children. If your child has had nail varnish on the fingers at the weekend/evening please can you ensure that it is removed.
