The wearing of uniform gives children an idea of corporate identity and also eliminates any element of competition over clothing. Our uniform is practical, washable and the children like wearing it.
Please note the following guidelines when ordering uniform:
EYFS & Key Stage 1 (Foundation, Y1 and Y2)
Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 need to wear a school crested round neck jumper or cardigan, white polo shirt and school book bag.
Key Stage 2 (Y3-5)
When the children move up to Key Stage 2 (Y3-5) they have the option to wear a school tie which needs to be worn with either a crested v-neck jumper or cardigan and white shirt, or they can continue wearing a round neck jumper or cardigan with no tie if they prefer.
Key Stage 2 (Y6)
Children in Year 6 will wear a tie and collared shirt along with our new Heatherlands Year 6 blazers. These have been gifted to the school by the Friends of Heatherlands to ensure that everyone in year 6 has the opportunity to wear one proudly.
Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a rucksack to school which can be purchased on the high street.
Non-logo items such as shirts, polo shirts, trousers, skirts, shorts (Summer term only), summer dresses (Summer term only) etc can be purchased on the high street.
Uniform consists of:
Sensible black shoes should be worn (or closed toe sandals for warmer months). Trainers are not suitable for every day wear.
Children are required to wear black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoor PE in all year groups. For outdoor PE, trainers or plimsolls are necessary. Navy blue or black tracksuit bottoms (plain, without logos or patterns) must be worn in cold weather along with the Heatherlands sweatshirt or cardigan they have for their school uniform. For inter-house sports matches or on sports day your child will need to wear a t-shirt that matches their house. This will be Red - David, White - George, Blue - Andrew from September 2021.
The Friends of Heatherlands sometimes organise second hand clothes sales.
All clothing MUST be named. Found, un-named items of clothing go into the lost property box in the front office. Periodically this is cleared and un-named, unclaimed items of clothing will find their way into the next second-hand clothes sale, or will be used as spare clothing for children who need another set of clothes during the day.
If any additional clothing is needed for trips you will be notified in advance.
Looking smart, feeling proud!
Jewellery and make up
We do not encourage the wearing of any jewellery. However, if stud earrings are worn, these must be removed for PE by you or your child for safety reasons. No other jewellery, nail varnish or inappropriate hair accessories should be worn in school, with the exeption of a watch or that of religious significance.
Hair should be neat and tidy. Any hair longer than collar length must be neatly tied back. Closely shaved haircuts or patterns shaved into hair are not allowed. Unnatural coloured hair, coloured hair braids and temporary/henna tattoos are not allowed.
Please ensure all items are clearly labelled with your child's name, so that any lost items can be returned. The lost property box is located in the office meeting room.
The school cannot take responsibility for the loss of or personal damage to personal articles or valuables. Therefore, please discourage your child from bringing his/her most treasured possessions into school. Unfortunately they may get lost or broken and the child can become distressed. Jewellery and watches can present a particular problem and in many instances are safer left at home.
We’re the sports leaders with some news,
We’re here to talk about the kit you choose.
We need to show we’re the smartest school,
So wear the right stuff and we can be cool.
This is what we wear when we have PE,
It’s the Heatherlands rules for you and me.
No logos please they just won’t do,
Just plain T-shirts and tracky bottoms too.
So come on everyone and wear the right thing,
For exercising, run and jumping.
We need to be smart everyday,
Because we know it’s the Heatherlands Way!
Thank you. We hope you like it.
