School Uniform


At Fagley Primary School our policy is that all children wear the approved school uniform when attending school, on educational visits and when participating in school organised events outside normal school hours.  We provide a complete list of the items needed for school uniform in our Uniform Policy.  Uniform for PE is designed to ensure the health and wellbeing of our pupils, taking into account whether the activities are indoor or outdoor and to ensure their safety.


Aims and Objectives

Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform;

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Creates a feeling of community and belonging
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with Fagley Primary School and our values
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable, and good value for money
  • Has been designed with health and safety in mind


Key Roles and Responsibilities

  • The Governing Body has overall responsibility for the implementation of the School Uniform Policy and procedures of Fagley Primary School.
  • The Governing Body has overall responsibility for ensuring that the School Uniform Policy, as written, does not discriminate on any grounds, including but not limited to ethnicity/national origin, culture, religion, gender, disability or sexual orientation.
  • The Governing Body has overall responsibility for reviewing the School Uniform Policy.
  • The Headteacher has responsibility for handling complaints regarding this policy as outlined in the school’s Complaints Policy.
  • The Headteacher will be responsible for the day-to-day implementation and management of the School Uniform Policy and procedures of Fagley Primary School.


The Role of Parents

  • We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. 
  • Parents should ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.
  • If any parent has concerns regarding the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the Headteacher.
  • The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.  Similarly, should an item of the school uniform prove problematic for a pupil with disabilities, then parents are invited to draw this to the attention of the Headteacher.  The school will not treat pupils with disabilities unfavourably. 


Monitoring and Review

When monitoring this policy, through its committee work, the Governing Body will:

  • Seek the view of parents, to be sure that they agree with the policy, and support it
  • Consider, with the Head Teacher any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensations;
  • Require the Head Teacher to report to the Governors on the way the policy is being implemented.


The school policy will be reviewed by the Governing Body every three years, or earlier if considered necessary. 


Jewellery - On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.  Pupils are allowed to wear a watch, one earring per lobe – small plain stud only. Pupils are not permitted to wear necklaces (other than for faith reasons) and bracelets / bands or any kind. Please Note: No responsibility can be taken for valuable items worn in school.


Haircuts - For health and safety reasons, long hair should always be tied back for PE.


Hair accessories - Hair accessories need to be small (no bigger than 5cm).


Footwear - All pupils must wear formal, plain black school shoes. Pupils should not wear shoes that are decorative (e.g. diamantes) have coloured/reflective strips or logos, backless sandals, trainers or 'leisure' shoes (we encourage non-branded trainers to promote equality between children).

PE Kit – Every child from Reception to Year 6 will be provided with a PE kit, which will consist of a plain blue t-shirt and blue shorts/leggings and a sweatshirt for outdoor PE.  PE Kits will be kept in school at all times and washed regularly by staff.  Children will need to bring a pair of trainers into school for outdoor PE.  If your child damages their PE kit, parents/carers will need to replace it.
