Fairlight Primary & Nursery School

Every individual child achieves

SCHOOL UNIFORM AT FAIRLIGHT

All children are asked to wear school uniform to school every day at Fairlight unless there is a special non-uniform day being held.

At the current time however we have relaxed the school uniform to allow children to wear clothes to school that may be more appropriate to what they are doing (e.g. wear your PE kit all day on the day we have PE to cut down on the bags needed) but also to allow those parents who wish to wash clothes at the end of every day.

WHY WE CONTIUE TO WEAR SCHOOL UNIFORM? 

We pride ourselves on looking smart and well presented, both within school and when on school visits. 

Wearing our school uniform creates a sense of community and belonging. It minimises competitiveness about clothes and ensures that children are appropriately dressed for a busy and active day.

At Fairlight Primary and Nursery School we ask that all children wear the correct school uniform and adhere to our jewellery policy.

As part of the Parent Supportive Code, parents have agreed:

We dress appropriately when attending school and ensure our children do so as well.  We ensure our children wear the correct uniform for school.

HOW WE CHOOSE OUR UNIFORM? 

The choices around our uniform were made by the children to support parents and most importantly children to wear the uniform. 

Black footwear for example allowed parents to choose between "school Shoes" and black trainers. Black or grey trousers or skirts allowed parents to purchase from a range of sources.

We have also tried to choose the easiest styles and colours that ALL major supermarkets stock.
