It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending Dunsville Primary School.
School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of the school.
We believe that our school uniform:
- Is practical and smart
- Promotes a sense of pride in the school
- Supports positive behaviour
- Protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
- White or blue blouse/polo shirt/shirt
- Navy blue cardigan or jumper (with or without logo)
- Grey skirt, pinafore dress/trousers/shorts
- In Summer, blue and white checked or striped dress
All children are expected to wear plain black, sensible shoes that have no logos or coloured decorative elements. Trainers are not allowed. This policy was agreed by the Board of Governors and is in line with expectations at both of the secondary schools we feed.
The uniform with the Dunsville logo is available to order online from the following sites:
For P.E. children are expected to change into a coloured t-shirt and black shorts. Children will be put into a team colour on entry to the school and this is the coloured t-shirt that they will wear in P.E. and games.
Children must bring trainers for outdoor games. Black joggers and sweatshirts can also be worn outside in cold weather.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exception to this rule are watches and plain stud earrings if the children's ears are pierced. No bracelets, rings or necklaces are allowed.Hoop earrings or novelty earrings are not allowed. All jewellery is removed for P.E., games and swimming, and children are responsible for doing this.
A child's hair style should be appropriate for school. Extreme hair styles, such as:
- Shaving the head
- Extreme shaping/styling
- Unnatural colouring, or a combination of colours are not allowed.
ALL items of clothing should be clearly labelled with the child’s name.
