Heavers Farm Uniform Requirements

Please note hoodies are not permitted. They will be confiscated if worn in school. Thank you for sending your child to school in uniform. Uniform helps children feel part of the group and minimises distractions. Flashing trainers, unusual hair cuts and colours, sparkling accessories etc all act as distractions to the children’s learning. ** WASHING ALERT!! The school tie needs to be dry cleaned, please do not wash as this will damage the tie** Please label all uniform and belongings clearly with your child’s name.

Children who go swimming require the correct swimming kit.

  • Swimming trunks must be made specifically for swimming, for example football shorts, or other shorts are not permitted.  Speedo trunks are ideal, but swim shorts must be at least above the knee.
  • All children must wear a swimming hat.

Jewellery

For safety reasons, we prefer pupils not to wear earrings. If they are worn, they must be plain studs, not hooped/glass/diamond-effect/football club emblems etc. Children will be asked to remove inappropriate earrings. For PE lessons, children must remove their earrings themselves, or have them taped. It would be preferable if earrings were not worn on PE days. Other piercings are not permitted. The only other jewellery allowed is that worn for religious or medical reasons, and a named wrist watch for children from Year 3 upwards. Bracelets, neck chains and rings are not permitted at any time.

Hair/Nails

Hair should be tidy.  Long hair must be tied back and children whose hair is not tied back will be asked to do so. No elaborate or extreme hair ties or hair accessories. Children must not wear nail varnish or make-up to school. If they do, they will be asked to remove it.

Undershirts

Whilst we would rather that children did not add to their PE kit in this way, if your child must wear a long-sleeved t-shirt under your PE t-shirt, it must conform to the following guidelines:
  • it must be navy blue or black – no other colours are permitted
  • it must be plain – no patterns, designs or logos
  • it must be tight to the skin – no loose jumpers or loose t-shirts
  • it must not have a visible neckline – no “mock” necks or “polo necks”
If undershirts are not in line with this policy, children will be asked to remove them. Please note: no visible undershirts are allowed under school uniform. (for example, long sleeved “skins” under short-sleeved shirts).

Other

Name tags and printed/woven labels are available to order from www.wovina.com Water bottles (labelled and preferably with a sports cap) are essential and a part of our school uniform. If your child fails to bring a water bottle to school, they may not be able to get a drink until break/lunchtimes.
