At Shirley Junior School, children wear PE kit as uniform

Taking pride in school is important and looking smart is one way of showing this. School uniform gives a sense of belonging and also makes clothing your child more straightforward. Children should be in school colours at all times. This academic year, 2021-2022, children will wear their PE kit as the uniform, please see below for details of the PE Uniform below.

We appreciate your efforts in maintaining a high standard of appearance.

All Shirley Junior School uniform can be purchased from Skoolkit in Totton, Southampton or online, or My Clothing online.

The Footwear

Trainers are the current footwear for school.  

Swimming

Swimming is a compulsory element of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 children and Year 5 children visit a nearby swimming pool. If they are unwell or are suffering from infectious conditions, verruca or open wounds, a letter asking to be excused is all that is needed.

Art

All children should have a named apron or old shirt to wear when they are engaged in Art and Craft or other practical activities. This can be kept in your child's classroom.

Jewellery and Watches

For safety reasons children are asked not to wear any jewellery (apart from watches and religious jewellery) to school. If earring studs have to be worn, for safety reasons they should be removed for PE lessons or, if not possible, taped over by a parent that morning. Long hair must be tied back during PE lessons, regardless of gender.
