School Uniform

Information regarding our school uniform policy.

We like pupils to wear the Hollesley School colours of a red sweatshirt or cardigan with a white shirt or white polo shirt and grey/black trousers, pinafore or skirt. Red checked dresses may be worn during the summer months.

For P.E. children will need black shorts, a plain white T-shirt, a pair of trainers and a tracksuit for colder weather.  Children should come to school in their PE kits on the days when they have PE.

Further information can be found in our Uniform Policy on our Policies page.

Outside Clothing

We use our school grounds for learning as well as play, throughout the school year. Therefore please provide your child with a pair of outdoor shoes (old trainers/wellies). These are kept in school at all times. The youngest children find wellies the easiest for changing. Outdoor trousers are also advisable during the winter.

Our Jewellery Policy

Children are not allowed to wear any jewellery in school for safety reasons. One pair of stud/sleeper earrings only are permitted, and these should be removed for PE lessons, swimming and sports activities both at lunchtime and after-school as serious injury can occur if a child falls on their ear. To avoid confusion, sleeper earrings have a smooth front with unusually short posts and screw on backs.

If a child is unable to remove their earrings for sports activities please ensure that they do not wear them to school on days when they are participating in sports otherwise they will be excluded from these activities.

In exceptional circumstances, for example if a child’s ears have just been pierced, a parent may request that their child is allowed to put tape over the earring providing some protection, however this is not as safe as removing them completely.  If the school is to use tape in such special circumstances, written consent from the parent is required in advance.
