We encourage all of our pupils from Reception upwards to wear school uniform. We believe this gives them a sense of pride and belonging to Headlands School. Items of school uniform displaying the school badge, including book bags, can be ordered through a third party.

Points to Note

• Please ensure that zips and buttons are not too difficult for your child to manage.

• Please consider the suitability of footwear for wearing all day in school and running around on a tarmac playground. Shoes should be of a closed toe design and black in colour. High heeled and/or open toe shoes are dangerous and not appropriate.

• PLEASE LABEL ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME

Jewellery

The only permitted jewellery that may be worn is:

• One pair of stud earrings (no other piercings are permitted)

• A sensible wristwatch (not a smartwatch)

All jewellery must be removed during practical lessons, e.g. PE lessons / swimming lessons. If children cannot remove their own earrings, then this should be done at home on the day of PE. Jewellery is the responsibility of the pupil and not the school. Lost or damaged items will not be refunded.

Make-Up

Children are not allowed to wear make-up. If a pupil attends school wearing make-up they will be required to remove it. False nails and nail extensions are not permitted; only clear nail varnish may be worn.

Hairstyles

Pupils are requested to have suitable hairstyles with natural coloured hair. Shaved patterns in hair e.g. tramlines, names, logos etc are not permitted. Long hair should be tied up. This is to avoid health and safety risks and ensure that children’s vision is not impeded. Large, excessive hair accessories should not be worn; however, small hair clips or plain headbands are acceptable. Hair extensions are not permitted.

School Bag

Pupils should use an appropriately sized shower proof bag to carry their reading book and reading diary to and from school; book bags are preferable as these are easily stored in classrooms.

Large bags / rucksacks are discouraged for day-to-day lessons due to restricted space in cloakrooms and children’s pegs. School bags featuring inappropriate images, slogans or phrases are not permitted. Key rings, charms and sensory toys should not be attached to bags; these items can be distracting for children during the school day. The school encourages pupils to bring non-valuable bags to school. The school will not be liable for lost or damaged school bags.

Water Bottle

All children should bring a water bottle into school every day: this can be refilled by children whenever necessary during the day. Water bottles must be labelled with the pupil’s name.
