Christchurch Infant School
Uniform and PE Kit
All children are expected to wear school uniform. It helps children to feel they belong and avoids peer pressure for expensive types of clothing. We encourage children to be independent in dressing themselves so please select designs with the minimum of buttons and awkward fastenings.
Our children wear:
Grey trousers, skirts or pinafores
Yellow ‘polo’ shirts *
School sweatshirts or cardigans *
Red/white checked or striped summer dresses
'School style’ shoes – not open-toed sandals, boots, heels or trainers
Shorts – any colour, but dark blue or black preferred
T-shirt, any colour, but yellow with school logo preferred Plimsolls or trainers. Bare feet are preferred for indoor PE. *
Children may be asked to bring in jogging bottoms for outside PE.
Foundation pupils will not require PE kits in school until the beginning of the Spring Term. During the Autumn they do participate in PE activities but are not required to change.
*All of these items can be found online at www.stevensons.co.uk or alternatively from their shop located at 148-150 Seabourne Road, Southbourne,
Bournemouth, BH5 2JA. PE kit bags and book bags are also needed and available from these suppliers.
Please make sure that all items of uniform and kit are clearly named. Lost property is kept at the school office and is disposed of regularly. The school does not accept responsibility for the loss or damage of clothes and belongings that are brought into school.
Hairstyles – The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.
A Second Hand Uniform stall is available each term for parents to purchase good quality items.
Children are not allowed to wear jewellery to school for safety reasons.
Plain stud earrings are permitted, but your child must be able to remove them her/himself for PE or parents must provide medical tape to cover them up.
If your child wears a necklace for religious or medical reasons, it must be inside their shirt at all times.
Please do not allow your child to wear watches which have large ‘toy covers’ or which play games/make noises as these are distracting in class.
‘Toys and treasures’ should not be brought to school. It causes much distress if these are lost or damaged.
