School Uniform

School Uniform

At Laureate, we expect all children to wear the correct school uniform:

 

Girls:

  • Bottle green sweatshirt/cardigan/fleece1 and white polo shirt
  • Knee length grey skirt, pinafore dress or school trousers2
  • Green and white checked dresses may be worn in the summer
  • ‘Sensible’ low black shoes

Boys:

  • Bottle green sweatshirt/fleece1
  • White polo shirt
  • Grey school trousers2
  • Grey socks
  • Black shoes

NB1 A plain bottle green school sweatshirt may be worn if families are unable to purchase a sweatshirt embroidered with the school logo.

NB2 Jeans, leggings, jeggings etc. are not considered school trousers; please be advised that some shops advertise ‘school trousers’ which do not match our uniform policy.

Nursery:

In addition to the above, we offer the following alternative options for children in our Nursery, if you prefer:

  • Bottle green t-shirt (long or short sleeved)
  • Black or grey leggings or jogging bottoms
  • Full zip fleece

PE (Reception to Year 6):

  • Green Shorts
  • T-shirt in the colour of your child’s House
  • Plimsolls
  • PE bag

A plain white t-shirt may be worn if families are unable to purchase a House t-shirt.

Please note that, for safety reasons, we expect all children with long hair to tie their hair back during PE lessons, and when using some specialist equipment in science, art, food technology etc.

ALL clothing should be clearly marked.

Ordering Uniform

All embroidered items can be purchased online, including many of the above items and a wide range of other, optional items such as jackets, hats and bags:

Please note that all orders from both companies can only be placed online; while both companies will deliver orders to the school, we will not be holding stock or taking orders at the office.  Please liaise directly with the relevant company if you have any queries regarding uniform.

The PTA hold regular ‘nearly new’ uniform sales.

Jewellery and Watches

Jewellery should not be worn in school. Earrings are not allowed, except for children with pierced ears, who may wear studs on those days when they do not have swimming or PE. If you intend to have your child’s ears pierced, please ensure that this is done at the beginning of the summer holidays so the holes are healed before the autumn term begins and earrings can be removed for PE lessons.

Children may wear an ordinary watch but responsibility for its safe keeping belongs to them, and the school will not be held responsible for any losses.

Make-up and Nail Varnish

Pupils are not permitted to wear make-up in school, including nail varnish. Any pupil wearing make-up will be asked to remove it by the following day; should pupils fail to do so, the school reserves the right to provide the pupil with cotton wool pads, nail varnish remover etc. and ask the pupil to remove the make-up in school.
