The uniform has been devised in response to numerous requests by parents. It solves the problem of “What shall I wear today?” It ensures the children are always dressed sensibly. It is a unifying factor. We believe it also helps towards creating a good ‘tone’.
The Governors expect the co-operation of parents in ensuring that the policy on uniform is adhered to.
Chartham Primary School uniform is as follows:
· Navy blue cardigan or sweatshirt with school logo
· Light Blue polo shirt
· Grey trousers
· Grey tailored shorts
· Grey skirt
· Blue/white check/stripe summer dress
· Grey, white socks, navy tights
· Black, flat, formal footwear
It is essential to mark all items of uniform with your child’s name.
School sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, PE t-shirts, shorts, baseball caps and hats are all obtainable from www.yourschooluniform.com. If parents have difficulty with ordering uniform online, please contact the school office. Most of the uniform can also be purchased in supermarkets.
We would also like to encourage your child to bring a book bag to school for their reading books and the scrap books which are used for communication between home and school. These can also be purchased from www.yourschooluniform.com.
· White t-shirt
· Navy shorts
For personal hygiene and safety, all children change for Indoor PE and wear plimsolls. For health and safety reasons, earrings may not be worn for any PE activity.
Suitable outdoor PE kit for winter (in addition to t-shirts and shorts) could include track suits, jogging bottoms or sweatshirts.
From Year 3 children will attend swimming lessons for a term, during the year and will need to bring in a basic swimming kit with a costume, towel, hat and goggles. Whilst half the class go swimming the other half will attend forest school and will need to bring suitable clothing for this activity. Forest school children will go outside in most weathers and depending on the time of year may need waterproof clothing and wellington boots or a hat and sun cream.
