Uniform

At Howbridge, presentation is extremely important to us. We value how we present ourselves and our work to others.

Parents/carers are able to order the Howbridge uniform from SmartyPants.

If you have any queries regarding uniform orders, please contact the school office.

SCHOOL UNIFORM

The wearing of school uniform creates a sense of unity and belonging and also sets an expectation of high standards. We believe that wearing full school uniform results in a positive attitude to work and improved standards of behaviour, both of which are conducive to a high standard of academic achievement.

We aim to reach the highest standards in terms of achievement and behaviour and expect parents’ full support in our uniform policy.

Physical Education is a compulsory subject in the National Curriculum and all children are expected to take part in PE although they may be excused for medical reasons. In this event a note should be sent to the class teacher requesting the child be excused.

For health and safety reasons children need clothes to change into for a Physical Education lesson.

JEWELLERY

With the exception of medi-alert bracelets and necklaces, only watches and discreet sleepers or studs for pierced ears may be worn. In the interests of the safety of the children, the wearing of any other form of jewellery in school is unacceptable. This includes false nails and nail varnish.

For PE, watches must be removed and all earrings must be removed. Children are responsible for looking after their own watches and earings and the school will not be responsible for any loss or damage. If parents are worried about this, the easiest solution is for your child not to wear their watches and or studs/sleepers on PE days.
