At Whitchurch Combined School we are proud of our uniform.
A green standard checked dress, not striped - available from most department stores may be worn in summer. This should be a dress not a skirt and top.
The children in our reception class may wear a white polo shirt instead of a shirt and tie. This is more practical for their curriculum activities. Other uniform clothing applies.
For indoor P.E., all children require a white school t-shirt, plain dark green shorts, white socks and inexpensive trainers or plimsolls.
Children are advised to wear an additional bottle green sweat-shirt and black tracksuit for outdoor games in cold weather. Black tracksuits for children in Years 5 and 6 should be worn. Older children using the field for games in winter will need an additional 'muddy' change of kit.
A sun-hat is recommended for outdoor activities in summer. This can also be ordered through the office.
We request that all items of clothing are clearly named.
Children should not wear any jewellery except for simple watches and the smallest possible studded earrings for those with pierced ears - one pair only. County regulations insist that all items of jewellery are removed for P.E. lessons. If ears have been recently pierced they should be covered with tape. Neither make-up nor nail varnish should be worn.
Hair should be tied back if longer than chin level using a black or green band, ribbon or slide. Braids are not permitted. Boys’ hair should be of a reasonable length and tied back if long. Hair gel is not permitted.
The following items are available from school at very reasonable prices:
