Uniform

School Uniform Policy

 

We expect all parents to provide school uniform and adhere to the school uniform policy.  We expect pupils to wear their uniforms with pride and expect shirts to be tucked in and cardigans/sweatshirts not to be tied around the waist.

 

Purpose of a school uniform:-

  • To give a sense of belonging and unity to the school.

 

  • To enable children to concentrate on their education and not be preoccupied with fashion.

 

  • To enable all children to come to school and not be confronted by peer pressure.

 

  • To assist parents so that children do not make a fuss over what they are going to wear for the day.

 

The school uniform is gold.

 

Availability

All items of Holy Trinity School uniform are available from Valentino’s in Knaphill:

You are also able to purchase grey trousers, skirts, pleated culottes and pinafores from chain stores and children’s outfitters. Boys’ trousers and shorts should be the classic design (not ‘cargo style’).  Pinafores / skirts / pleated culottes must not have any form of embroidery on.

 

Good quality second hand uniform can also be purchased fortnightly through the Holy Trinity School Association (HTSA).

 

Girls

Girls wear: white blouses or polo shirts (with or without Holy Trinity logo), grey pinafore dress, grey pleated culottes (skirt length style) or grey skirt, yellow striped or gingham dresses, Holy Trinity gold sweatshirt or Holy Trinity gold cardigan, white socks or grey or black tights.

 

Black/navy/dark blue or brown school shoes with laces, slip-on, Velcro or buckle fastening are acceptable.  Lightweight shoes are acceptable for the summer months.  No sandals, as these generally provide poor foot support and protection and are inadequate on wet playgrounds!

 

  • No fashion shoes of an exaggerated type are to be worn
  • No other colours
  • No suede
  • No boots
  • No high heels or platforms
  • No sandals
  • No trainers (except for use in Games lessons)

Boys wear: white shirts or polo shirts (with or without Holy Trinity logo), grey trousers or shorts, gold Holy Trinity school sweatshirt, plain grey socks.  Black/navy/dark blue or brown school shoes with laces, slip-on, Velcro or buckle fastening are acceptable.  Lightweight shoes are acceptable for the summer months.  No sandals, as these provide poor support and protection and are inadequate on wet playgrounds!

  • No sandals
  • No trainers (except for use in Games lessons)

 

P.E Kit

For Physical Education lessons, boys and girls wear white T-shirts (with or without Holy Trinity logo), and black shorts (not cycle shorts) or skorts. Children work barefoot indoors unless they have a foot infection, but will need either plimsolls or trainers for school field / playground lessons.  Trainers may be worn for games lessons only or at breaktimes when outside but not within the school building.  There is no uniform tracksuit.  However, a tracksuit, i.e. jogging bottoms and sweat top is necessary for outside games in winter.  A change of socks for children is necessary for outside games.

 

Children should not borrow other children’s PE / games kit.

 

Coats

We do not specify a uniform coat but during the winter it is important that children have their coats in school.  As well as break time and lunch time there may be other times when pupils are working outside the classroom and for all these occasions they will require a coat.

 

Hats

We encourage the wearing of a hat during the summer term for protection against the sun.   A hat with the school logo may be purchased from the school office.   Children may wear hats to school at other times of the year if they wish to do so.

 

Art/craft shirts

All children should have protective clothing for use in art and craft sessions.  Old shirts are useful for this, especially if elasticated at the wrists.

 

Jewellery and make-up

Make up and nail varnish may NOT be worn in school and we do not allow the wearing of jewellery except a watch and plain stud earrings.  Children who cannot remove and replace earrings themselves should not wear them on P.E days.

 

Girls should wear regular hair / Alice band or clips and not over-sized hair bands and bows which can be a distraction.

 

No child is permitted to wear any form of jewellery, including ear-studs, during a P.E lesson.  If you are likely to have your child’s ears pierced, IT IS ESSENTIAL to have this done at the beginning of the summer holidays so that P.E. lessons are not missed.  It is irresponsible if parents allow ear-piercing which prevents their children from fulfilling National Curriculum requirements.

 

Body adornments e.g. mimic tattoos, hair braids / beads and body piercings are not acceptable in school.
