If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Smith.

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
· promotes a sense of pride in the school;
· engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
· is practical and smart;
· identifies the children with the school;
· prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
· makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
· is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
· is designed with health and safety in mind.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school; this is because we think that this footwear is appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform. We require all children to wear shoes as stated in the uniform list.
School jumpers, cardigans, ties, coats and PE Kits can be purchased from Broadbents in Middleton.
Full uniform must be worn on non PE days. On PE days, children should come dressed in PE kit and a school jumper or cardigan. We now strongly recommend that parents choose trainers as the safest, most comfortable and user-friendly footwear for school. Black trainers can be worn every day and used for PE lessons. It is important that children access all playtime activities safely; children who do not wear trainers may not be allowed to play on the full range of equipment.

Up to (and no more than) one pair of small stud earrings may be worn. This is at parents’ own risk. Pupils may wear a watch (analogue-not digital- is best); this must be removed for PE lessons. School will not be responsible for loss, injury or damage to these items or for children injured as a result of wearing them. ‘Smart’ watches which have messaging/ photo facility absolutely may NOT be worn at school- this is a safe-guarding issue.
