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

– white shirt/polo shirt/blouse
– red academy sweatshirt with the academy logo or red cardigan
– plain white short or knee-length socks or black/grey tights
– black shoes or black trainers
Children also need a school book bag and PE bag.

Jeans and jewellery are not considered suitable for school wear. Stud or very small sleeper earrings are the only types acceptable and for safety reasons these must be removed for PE and swimming activities. 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.
All pupils need an outdoor kit: pupils spend a lot of time outside for PE, all year around and PE isn’t 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. Label everything with your child’s name. 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)
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)
A SEPARATE - PE BAG
Please put all items in a named PE bag. The PE bag needs to be separate from the rucksack or book bag that a pupil brings into school so that the kit can stay in school.
KEEP IT IN SCHOOL
PE kit needs to stay in school for the duration of the half-term. Do not send it in weekly or just on the PE day. If a kit needs washing, please send it back in directly. This will avoid kits being forgotten. For covid-safety kit and uniform are stored neatly on the pupil’s chair when changing and no kit can be shared.
EARRINGS, WATCHES AND HAIR
Provide tape for a child wearing earrings. Pupils have to use the tape themselves, so remove earrings or tape ears at the start of the day if your child cannot do this. Staff are not able to remove earrings. Shoulder-length hair must be tied back; provide a scrunchie in the PE kit, or tie back before the start of the day.
