Uniform

At Queen’s Inclosure Primary School, all children are expected to wear uniform and appropriate footwear.  We support the wearing of school uniform because it:

  • helps the children to feel part of the school community
  • is practical for school activities
  • reduces any perception of unequal status
  • keeps the focus on learning rather than appearance
  • clearly identifies the children during trips
  • is smart and establishes good habits for adult life.

Our uniform consists of:

 

For all children

All Year

Dark green sweatshirt or cardigan with QI logo*

(Black or grey sweatshirts, hoodies or jumpers are not school uniform) 

White shirt/blouse or polo shirt with QI logo*

Grey or black trousers, skirt, culottes or grey pinafore dress

(Miniskirts or leggings are not school uniform)

Dresses, skirts and shorts etc must be to or just above the knee only 

Plain grey/ dark green/ black/ white socks or grey/ dark green/ black tights 

Dark green fleece with QI logo* (optional)

In warmer weather

Grey or black shorts 

Green and white chequered dress (plain cycling shorts may be worn under summer dresses to maintain dignity!)

PE Kit

Plain black shorts, plain dark green or white t-shirt*, plimsolls or dark-coloured (preferably black) trainers with discrete logos only

A plain grey, navy or black tracksuit for colder months (leggings are acceptable for PE)

Plain drawstring PE bag with QI logo*

Ear tape, if required, to cover stud earrings

Footwear

Plain, flat or very low-heeled shoes in black, grey or dark brown.

Shoes should be securely fastened with laces, a buckle or Velcro and children should be able to do this independently.   

Sandals may be worn during the summer but open toes and heels are discouraged due to the lack of protection offered. 

Any boots need to be changed for school shoes when your child reaches their classroom and placed on the wellie rack outside.

Headwear

We encourage children to wear caps* or sun hats when playing outside during sunny weather. Hats and headscarves are to be removed indoors.

Book Bags

Due to space limitations and risk of trip hazards, we ask that children use the slim-line QI book bag* or alternatively a small, plain, drawstring bag. Sport bags are acceptable with discrete logos only.

* QI logo preferred but optional.  These items can be bought at cost from the school office.

Uniform Order Form

 Denim, sports trousers and fashion wear are not permitted.

Jewellery and Watches

Discrete ear studs are permitted but, to prevent injury, these need to be removed or covered with ear tape during P.E. Standard watches may be worn (ideally analogue to aid learning) but gadgets such as Fitbits or iWatches etc are not permitted as they are a distraction in class and are an expensive item to lose or damage.

Hairstyles and Decoration

Long hair on both girls and boys should be tied back with a simple, dark-coloured accessory. Simple headbands and small bows in black, white or green are acceptable. We ask that elaborate or extreme hairstyles or decorations are not worn in school.  Shaved styles or tram lines are not permitted – minimum grade 3 please.

Make Up and Nail Polish

Make up or nail polish is inappropriate for school and children are not permitted to wear this. Please ensure children’s nail varnish is removed before coming to school.
