Our children have all too much pressure over their appearance and can be encouraged to be overly aware of how they look when young. We want our young people to be interested in enjoying learning, fascinated by their amazing world, getting on with each other and playing. It is wrong to encourage children to judge themselves or other people on their outward appearance.

This is the main reason for our having a school uniform at Rudston Primary School.

In line with our aim of developing a safe, happy and caring environment in school and supporting the diverse needs of pupils, our uniform allows children some choice.

ALL children NEED:

  • a maroon and silver jumper or cardigan with school logo
  • a polo shirt in Foundation and a white shirt and school tie from Year 1 to Year 6
  • grey trousers, shorts, pinafore or skirt
  • A rain-proof coat
  • Flat supportive shoes (no backless shoes, trainers, ballet style pumps or high heels)

FOR PE ALL CHILDREN NEED:

  • a PE bag
  • a maroon T shirt with school logo
  • maroon shorts with school logo
  • tracksuit for Infant and Juniors (see below)
  • pumps/trainers for outdoor games
  • no football kits or branded items with large logos

During year 2015/2016, the Rudston P.E. kit was optional for children but following parent and pupil consultation, the school tracksuit is now part of our school uniform as of 2016/17.

This means that the children can have longer doing PE rather than spending time changing during some of their PE session.  It also addresses the issue of some children (particular in the upper key stage) getting more self conscious changing together.

Infants – Sweatshirt and jogpants combination comes in the school colours, and is embroidered with the white Rudston logo.

Juniors – The polycotton lined track top and bottoms combination comes in the school colours, and is embroidered with the white Rudston logo.

IN ADDITION PUPILS CAN CHOOSE FOR THE SUMMER TERM April (after Easter)  – July:

  • a summer school dress in pink and white for the girls or a short sleeved blouse
  • a polo shirt for the boys or a short sleeved shirt and tie
  • a school cap

Items are sold via school office or local school supplier

Appearance

Children’s time in school should be free from the pressures of being overly concerned with outward appearance so they can focus on developing their inner qualities and think and learn about the world.

  • No jewellery please, stud earrings may be worn if unavoidable, the child must be able to remove them him/herself for PE (if you must have your child’s ears pierced please do so at the beginning of the summer holiday)
  • No make~up, nail varnish, spiked or gelled hair ~ we are interested in inner beauty!
  • Long hair must be tied back ~ headlice are very fond of primary schools and infections are less likely when hair is under control.

Children spend a long time in school and we want them to have healthy and happy feet! Black shoes are required and we do ask for styles that help our children keep active at playtime. Children of all ages enjoy running and playing on the climbing equipment.

  • No trainers can be worn in school
  • Shoes should be flat and provide good foot support
  • Boots should not be worn in school and in winter children should bring indoor shoes if walking in boots
  • No ballerina style pumps for girls ~ they fall off and are dangerous at playtime
  • Sandals should have a strap at the back and provide good foot support
  • Trainers, flip flops and crocs are not appropriate footwear in school

There’s no such thing as bad weather . . .

. . .only the wrong clothes!
We play out in drizzle and cold weather. Children need a waterproof on all but the sunniest days. Children need a coat when the weather is cold. A vest helps them keep warm in the long lunchtime play. In Summer they should bring sun cream if they are very sensitive to sunlight and a sun hat.

If we are too hot or too cold we get grumpy, then we fall out with people and do not learn well.
