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.
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 tracksuits 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.
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 (Y3-6)
When the children move up to Key Stage 2 (Y3-6) 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. 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 dresses etc can be purchased on the high street.
Uniform consists of:
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, temporary tattoos, jewellery (other than that of religious significance) and make-up (including nail polish) are not allowed.
Sensible black shoes should be worn (or closed toe brown 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. A navy blue or black tracksuit (plain, without logos or patterns) must be worn in cold weather. Kit should be kept in a bag which will hang on your child’s peg – a named shoe bag with a drawstring is ideal. For inter-house sports matches or on sports day your child will need to wear a t-shirt that matches their house.
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.
