Uniform is a requirement and worn at Roseberry to develop a sense of pride in being a member of the Roseberry Primary School community. Wearing uniform also prevents clothing becoming the focus of unkind comparisons based on cost and fashion and has a significant impact on the way children behave.
School logo sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, fleeces and PE kit are available to order from Elizabeth’s Embroidery via their website or via school. Uniform orders are placed regularly each term. There are a selection of sweatshirts in school to try for size. The child’s initials can be embroidered on to the uniform.
In addition, non-logo royal blue sweatshirts and cardigans, pale blue and white shirts, polo shirts and blouses can be bought from supermarkets or clothing stores.
In addition, all children will need a PE bag and a school book bag.
Please ensure that all items of clothing are named (label inside on tag, handwritten on tag, etc).
- No jewellery, body piercing or tattoos to be worn in school. Parents wishing to have their child’s ears pierced should do so at the beginning of the summer holidays in order to allow healing to occur before earrings are taken out.
- Football shirts, coloured trainers, sportswear and jeans are not suitable for school and should not be worn at any time.
- Hair should be smart and clean and suitable for all activities. Long hair needs to be tied back for PE activities. Coloured hair, patterned trimming and closely cropped styles are not appropriate to a school environment.
Personal Property and Lost Property: School cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property – clothes, own equipment, toys, money or watches.
School provides all the equipment that the children need in school.
Lost property is regularly displayed for the children. Parents who wish to check the lost property can do so via the office. Lost property is cleared at the end of each term and sent to a charity shop.
