By accepting a place at Hamstel Junior School, parents are agreeing to support their child in the wearing of correct uniform. This creates a calm environment in which children feel organised and prepared to learn. There are occasional non-uniform days throughout the year, usually linked to fund-raising for specific causes. If children arrive at school without the correct uniform, the school may supply them with it for the duration of the day, and you may be contacted.
All school uniform is readily available from 'Crawlers' in Hamstel Road at reasonable prices.
An apron to protect clothes duringcraft activities should be provided and kept in school - an old adult shirt worn backwards and the sleeves cut to anappropriate length is perfectly adequate. Please ensure there is a secure button in the top neck position.
P.E., Games and Swimming
All children are expected to change fully into the correct clothing for P.E., games and swimming.
FOR P.E. and GAMES
Each pupil will require a pair of plimsolls or trainers, a plain yellow T-shirt and maroon shorts.
Amber T-shirts and maroon shorts are on sale at Crawlers.
OUTDOOR GAMES IN WINTER
It is advisable to provide either a tracksuit or a jumper.
All children will require a costume, towel and swimming hat in a waterproof bag.
Hats are available from the school office at a cost.
NOT PERMITTED are:
Large trainer boots for PE or games, cycling or Bermuda shorts for either P. E. or swimming.
P.E. and swimming are part of the National Curriculum and all children participate in these subjects unless we receive a letter from their parents excusing them.
Jewellery and Earrings
In the interests of health and safety we ask that children with pierced ears wear small studs or sleeper earrings and that ALL earrings MUST be removed for PE, games and swimming lessons. Bracelets and necklaces should not be worn but children may wear a watch.
Please make sure that ALL items of clothing and personal belongings are clearly marked/ labelled with the child’s name.
