At Fielding Primary School our children are proud to be members of our school and wear our uniform. The uniform has been designed to be practical for a primary school while reflecting the high standards expected at school – it is to be worn with pride at all times.
We feel that it is important that children learn to dress smartly and appropriately. They grow up at Fielding understanding that most secondary schools and later in life, businesses, require smart, professional dress.
We look to parents to work with the school to ensure that children come to school always maintaining a high standard of dress and with at least a minimum of the correct colours in their clothing.
We value learning so highly that we do not send children home to change. However, we hope that we do not have to deal with uniform transgressions.
Judgements about acceptability of uniform and appearance can only be made by school staff and ultimately the Head Teacher.
All children are expected to wear uniform:
in summer, from the start of the Summer term until Autumn half-term, blue & white gingham style summer dresses may also be worn.
To allow outdoor play to take place in wet weather, pupils are expected to have suitable warm and waterproof clothing in school at all times:
Branded and/or designer items of clothing are not to be worn.
PE kit / 'uniform' is worn for the whole day on a child's allocated PE day. These arrangements minimise lost property and maximise time taking part in sport and exercise rather than changing kit. PE uniform to be worn to school:
Jogging bottoms or shorts maybe worn for outdoor sessions all through the year; shorts to be worn for indoor sessions. Shorts may be worn under jogging bottoms.
* Marlborough (dark) grey jogging bottoms are stocked by our uniform supplier, see below, but can also be purchased from any other supplier. When purchasing new items, please check uniform expectations.
Patches are awarded to pupils to recognise individual achievement for Values-based education, sport and music. Patches should be sewn on to the Fielding sweatshirt or cardigan:
