Irresistible learning at the heart of the community

Uniform Information

Our children wearing the school uniform with pride

Wearing school colours gives children a sense of identity with the school, which helps to encourage a community spirit. We expect all children to wear the school uniform and thank parents for supporting this.

 

The school colour is red and we encourage children to wear it as much as possible. All branded clothing can be ordered from Skoolkit. The school accepts both branded and plain unbranded uniform. Please note that many supermarkets and other clothing stores sell unbranded school uniform such as trousers, skirts, plain white polo shirts and dresses. Good quality second-hand uniform is also available at school. If you are unsure of which size to order, or have any questions about school uniform, please contact the school office.

 

Please remember that all items must be marked with your child's name.  The uniform consists of the following:

 

  • White or red shirt or polo shirt
  • Red school sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece
  • Grey or black trousers (no jeans or jogging bottoms)
  • Knee length grey skirt, pinafore dress or trousers/culottesGrey or black shorts
  • Red check dress for summer
  • White, grey or black socks
  • Red, white, grey or black tights/socks

 

Shoes/Boots

  • All shoes/boots need to be flat and suitable for use on the field or playground, enabling your child to run, turn and jump with ease
  • Winter shoes/boots should be black/brown
  • In the summer, sandals are permitted
  • Trainers, Crocs, flip flops and high heels are not permitted

 

Jewellery/accessories

  • Ideally a red plain baseball cap or summer hat                                                                                        (mixed colours, sequins and large branding is not permitted). Alternatively, a plain coloured hat.
  • Sensible hairclips/hairbands may be worn

Sports Wear

Children need to ensure they bring in their PE kit in a suitable bag or drawstring bag. It is most successful if they bring in at the beginning of the term and the staff will send home at an appropriate time in the half term to be washed and brought back for the next PE lesson: 

 

  • White Weeke PE t-shirt or house colour plain t-shirt 
  • Red/black shorts
  • Black/red jogging bottoms for outdoor winter PE
  • Black/red sweatshirt for outdoor PE (a different sweatshirt from ordinary uniform)
  • Trainers

 

As a school we have purchased a number of plain white t-shirts which will be given out to those children who do not wear the correct PE kit and the expectation will be that the t-shirt is returned, washed, the next day.

Summer Time is here!

As the warmer months approach, we'd like to kindly remind you of the importance of maintaining consistency in your child's school uniform attire, even during the summer season. Ensuring that your child wears the correct school uniform, including red plain sun hat or cap and appropriate footwear, is crucial for several reasons:

  1. Sense of Unity: Uniformity in attire fosters a sense of unity and belonging among pupils, promoting equality and reducing distractions in the learning environment.

  2. Identification and Safety: A consistent school uniform makes it easier to identify children, especially during school outings and events. Additionally, appropriate footwear ensures safety during physical activities.

  3. Sun Protection: A red plain sun hat or cap serves as a protective measure against the harmful effects of sun exposure, helping to prevent sunburns and heat-related illnesses during outdoor activities.

 

By adhering to the school uniform guidelines, you not only support the school's values but also contribute to the overall well-being and safety of your child. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that your child is dressed appropriately for school throughout the summer months.

Uniform - Updated Information

At Weeke Primary school we do not have a Uniform Policy. However, the governing body and staff work closely to ensure that the expectations set consider the cost and protected characteristics of individuals or groups. If a parent or carer wishes to express any concerns regarding the approach or just want to talk through, please contact the school office or speak to your child's class teacher.
