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.

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

PE/Games Kit

For indoor PE, children should wear black shorts and a white t-shirt or a Shirley school green house logo t-shirt . Shirley junior school PE sweat jumpers and PE house t-shirts can be purchased from Skoolkit in Totton. They do not need plimsolls as indoor PE is done in bare feet.

Outdoor games lessons take place all year round therefore in cold weather children will need a pair of tracksuit bottoms or joggers, preferably a Shirley sports jumper or tracksuit top.  They should wear sports socks, black shorts and a plain white tee shirt (no logos) or green house t-shirt.  For outside games lessons children should wear trainers (no logos).

Please provide your child with a named washable bag for storing PE and Games equipment. All equipment must be named.

All jewellery must be removed for PE and Games lessons unless it is being worn for religious reasons. Jewellery which is being worn for religious reasons must be covered by a sweatband, headband or by tape during PE and Games lessons.

Long hair must be tied back during these lessons, regardless of gender.

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 P.E. bag on his/her peg.

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.
