School Uniform

School Uniform:

West Row Academy has a uniform which we expect all children to wear.

The uniform consists of:

  • Grey trousers or shorts  /  Grey or black skirt  /  A pinafore dress  /  A red and white chequered or striped dress;
  • White shirt, polo shirt or blouse;
  • Red academy sweatshirt with the academy logo or red cardigan;
  • Plain white short or knee-length socks  /  Black or grey tights;
  • Black shoes or black trainers.

Please label everything your child wears / brings.

 

Physical Education (PE) Kit:

All pupils need an outdoor kit: pupils spend a lot of time outside for PE throughout the year and PE is not often ‘rained off’.  We want everyone to be excited at the prospect of getting out there and not shivering at the thought.  We have included a waterproof top and this mustn’t be a child’s coat.

This kit is required throughout the year:

  • Light-weight waterproof jacket (kagool);
  • Jogging bottoms (black);
  • Sweatshirt (red or black – no logos, no hood)
  • T-shirt (white with school logo from  https://corporatetiger.co.uk/?product_cat=west-row-primary-school or plain white with no logo)
  • Shorts (black)
  • Plimsolls or trainers (trainers cannot be worn inside, but bare feet are fine — check these fit)
  • Socks (if your child is likely to be wearing tights)
  • Tape for earrings (see below)
  • Hair scrunchie (for shoulder-length hair)

Please label everything your child wears / brings.

 

Children also need a school book bag and PE bag.

Put all of the PE kit in a named PE bag. This needs to be separate from the rucksack or book bag a pupil brings into school. PE kit needs to stay in school for the duration of the half-term.  Do not send it in weekly or just a PE day.  If a kit needs washing, please send it back in directly. This will avoid kits being forgotten and our children missing out.  We ask pupils to store their kit neatly when changing and no kit can be shared. 

Jeans and jewellery are not considered suitable for school wear.

A stud or very small sleeper earring are the only type of jewellery we permit. For safety reasons these must be removed for PE and swimming activities or you must provide tape to cover them. Pupils must be able to use the tape themselves. Removing earrings or taping ears at the start of the day is an option if your child cannot do this.  Staff are not able to remove earrings. Pupils are allowed to wear a watch to school, but they must take full responsibility for it. Watches must also be removed for PE lessons.

For safety, shoulder-length hair should be tied back; provide a scrunchie in the PE kit, or tie it back before the start of the day to ensure pupils are safe.
