Uniform

All parents, teachers and children can identify themselves proudly with Marchwood Junior School. School uniform is one way in which this sense of identity is helped. The vast majority of parents support us in this endeavour and the turnout in school is very smart. None of the items on our list should cost more than children's normal day clothes and the range offers some choice.

Boots which involve a lot of lacing are unsuitable for school as they often double changing times. Shoes, with high or narrow heels, flimsy sandals or 'flip-flops' are also unsuitable as school wear. Several items of uniform are available from the P.T.A. – please ask at the School Office.

ALL ITEMS OF SCHOOL UNIFORM MUST BE NAMED.

P.E. Kit

It is important that children change for P.E. and begin to develop a sense of personal hygiene.

The School P.E. kit consists of a yellow school T-shirt* and blue shorts. Indoor work takes place in bare feet (the P.E. Inspector recommends that Plantor warts should not prevent bare feet work). Plimsolls or trainers are needed for outdoor work and a tracksuit or jogging pants and sweatshirt would be useful.

Children in the Upper School may play football on the field and should wear trainers, football boots or old shoes. They will also need a change of socks. Jewellery must not be worn for P.E. for safety reasons.

Please supply a drawstring bag for P.E. Kit. It is important that P.E. Kit is in school ready for use every day. Please get into the habit of your child bringing it in on a Monday morning, keeping it in school all week and then taking it home for washing on a Friday.

Overalls

As some of our work involves painting or making activities an overall is essential. An old shirt, reversed with elasticated cuffs is ideal. During the year, we have to deal with a fair amount of lost clothing which is very time consuming and sometimes impossible to return.

PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF SCHOOL EQUIPMENT CLEARLY AND CHECK FROM TIME TO TIME.

Jewellery and Toys

Jewellery should not be worn at school as it is unsafe during P.E., Games and playtimes. Children with pierced ears must only wear studs. Earrings are not suitable for school and can cause very unpleasant injuries in play or games. Children will be asked to remove any type of earring or stud before participating in P.E. or games.

If you do have your child’s ears pierced could you please have it done at the very beginning of the Summer Holiday as participation in games and P.E. during term time is very difficult when children have been told to keep studs in newly pierced ears. If they cannot remove their earrings for P.E., please provide your child with medicated tape to cover them.

Please try to keep the number of non-essential items brought to school to a minimum as they do present problems of supervision. Mobile phones, radios, Walkmans and cassette recorders are not permitted at school.

We are not able to accept responsibility for items which are lost, although we do all we can to recover them within reason
