The Footwear

Shoes should be of a sensible school design and colour, bought bearing in mind the need to care for your children's feet rather than for fashion. Please remember when choosing school shoes for your child that they will have to walk up and down a number of staircases during the average school day, and that some parts of the school are quite a long way from each other. Trainers or plimsolls are not acceptable classroom wear, and neither are high heeled shoes or open-toed sandals or flip flops, since neither of these provide a suitable level of support in a building with so many stairs. In particularly severe, cold or inclement conditions boots may be worn but children must change into their usual shoes once in school.

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 plimsolls or 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 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.


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.
