We do encourage parents to support us in ensuring that we maintain high standards of appearance here at school and that their children are proud to be part of Rosa Street School. We ask that parents support us in this and do not allow children to come to school with for example brightly coloured hair, extreme haircuts or inappropriate slogans on clothing. Make up, including nail varnish is not expected to be worn at school.
We do expect children to wear the school uniform colours of a navy jumper/cardigan and blue or white shirt, with black or grey skirt or trousers. Plain black shoes are also encouraged. ‘Trainers’ are acceptable as long as they are not coloured and do not have brightly coloured or white labels, logos markings etc. A variety of uniform items are available to order from school and proudly display our school logo. School coloured clothing is also available from local shops and supermarkets as well as online.
Uniforms can be ordered online by visiting the Emblematic website or My Clothing website these can either be delivered to the school or to your home address. Please note we can only accept cheques in school if you wish to order using the Pupil Order Form
Children do need a change of clothing and footwear to enable them to take part in P.E. lessons. Indoor lessons can sometimes be in bare feet, however appropriate footwear for outdoor lessons is needed especially during the summer term. P.E. kit should be brought to school on Mondays and taken home for washing each Friday.
A school PE kit is available through our school suppliers which consists of t-shirt, shorts and a gym bag. Any t-shirt and shorts can be worn, however they need to be appropriate for physical exercise and not fashion items! ‘Strappy tops’ and football shirts are not allowed.
Please ensure ALL clothing brought to school, including outdoor coats etc are clearly labelled with your child’s name. This means that any lost property can be quickly returned to the owner.
Please send your child to school with a suitable coat for the outdoors which is clearly labelled with their name inside. Please send wellies for the outdoors which can be kept on the welly rack outside. Wellies need to be labelled with your child’s name clearly marked inside. We encourage pupils to make the most of all the outdoor opportunities available and at times this may mean that they come home muddy.
We discourage the wearing of jewellery in school for the health and safety of the children, however a wrist watch may be worn. If absolutely necessary, studs may be worn in pierced ears but children must be able to remove them independently for a P.E. Lesson.
