School Uniform & P.E Kit
When our children wear school uniform and PE kit, it portrays a very positive image of Christ Church CE Academy, particularly when the children visit other schools or take part in sporting activities across Kirklees. Not only do the children look smart in their school uniform, reinforcing the high standards we have in school, but the fact that all the children are wearing exactly the same garments for PE ensures that no child is targeted or finds themselves in a vulnerable situation in respect of any peer pressure or ‘competition’ with regard to ‘branded’ clothing or football shirts. Keeping it plain and simple also keeps it inexpensive for parents and carers.
Christ Church CE Academy uniform consists of:
- dark blue embroidered school sweatshirt/cardigan
- embroidered school polo shirt or light blue plain polo shirt/shirt
- dark grey/black trousers or dark grey/black shorts (no jogging bottoms)
- dark grey/black skirts or dark grey/black pinafore dresses (no leggings)
- blue gingham dresses
- plain black shoes or trainers (no white or coloured stripes/flashes)
- plain socks or tights in accordance with the uniform colour scheme (black, grey, dark/light blue, white)
- all these items should be labelled to ensure any lost items can be returned
- trainers/non-slip pumps
- plain dark shorts
- plain white round necked T-shirt or polo shirt
- dark jogging bottoms and tracksuit top for outdoor sport in colder weather
- no jewellery must be worn
- all these items should be labeled to ensure any lost items can be returned
Children who do not wear full school uniform and PE kit on a daily/weekly basis will not be fulfilling the non-negotiable targets as part of their ‘Proud Pupil’ status. This will impact greatly upon the rewards, roles and responsibilities open to them as a Proud Pupils.
School sweatshirts and polo shirts are available from Reception. We would ask that parents use their discretion, dressing their children appropriately in practical garments which are appropriate to the season. We ask that all garments have clear name labels. Please can you also ensure that you send your child with an appropriate coat and footwear particularly on rainy or cold days. In snowy weather, please provide wellington/walking boots. In sunny weather, please put sun cream on your child and ensure they wear a sun hat.
For health and safety reasons, no jewellery may be worn in school with the exception of wristwatches and small stud earrings, which must be removed during physical education and swimming lessons. It would be helpful if your child left their earrings at home on P.E. and swimming days. In the event that your child has recently had their ears pierced and cannot remove their earrings, we ask that you send in written notification that you are responsible and give us permission to put plasters over the earrings during the lesson.
Long hair should be tied back for health and safety reasons. Thank you for your continued support in this matter.
