School Uniform

We believe that pupils really feel a sense of belonging by wearing a uniform. 

They take greater pride, not only in themselves, but also in their learning within the School.

We do, therefore, have a School Uniform (all of which should be clearly named).  Although some items can be purchased with the school badge from Graduates in Orpington High Street, these items are optional and can be substituted with plain red jumpers/cardigans or plain white polo shirts that can be purchased in most high street stores.

Children in reception have the option of wearing red tracksuit bottoms to encourage independent dressing and toileting.  Reception pupils should wear polo shirts and should not wear ties.   Please also make sure that they have black Velcro/buckle fastening shoes rather than laced up shoes.

Years 1 and 2 are welcome to start wearing shirts and ties.  Year 3 and above should wear long or short sleeved cotton shirts with the school tie.  Shirts must be tucked in and top buttons done up. 

Year 6 pupils have a special tie to differentiate them from the rest of the school, which is available from the school office. 

Shoes should be black or navy although in the summer red or white sensible sandals are allowed.  Black trainers are not acceptable footwear.  

                                                         

                                                            Year R-2                                                      Year 3-6

PE GAMES AND SWMMING

On PE days, the children will come to school in their PE kit and stay in it all day. This can be a red or navy tracksuit (red shorts on warmer days) with a white GSG logo t-shirt and white trainers that have Velcro fasteners (no laces)

 

When we advise your child will take part in swimming (usually Summer term), we ask that pupils wear ‘regulation’ swimwear (not bikini/long shorts (above the knee), etc.) swim hat and a towel, brought in a named bag

 

For Art and Craft – Please provide some protective clothing – art aprons with sleeves can be purchased but an old shirt would suffice.

PE GAMES AND SWIMMING KITS

Each child will have a named PE bag in which to put the following items, also clearly named:-

  • Red shorts and white T shirt
  • Plimsolls -  Trainers are not suitable for indoors apparatus as the stiff sole prevents gripping
  • Plain navy blue tracksuit (no ‘branded’ items please)

Earrings, which can be especially dangerous, are to be removed by children for PE lessons. Children must be able to remove and replace their own earrings or parents should remove them on PE days.  (We ask that pupils do not have their ears pierced during term time, as earrings have to remain in for 6 weeks and this is not suitable for swimming, games etc.  ONLY small studs in the earlobe are acceptable to wear to school). 

When swimming, we require pupils to wear ‘regulation’ swimwear (not bikini/long shorts (above the knee only), etc.) and a swim hat.

 

PRE-LOVED SCHOOL UNIFORM

Children out-grow their uniform so quickly, and this uniform is often donated to the school. Our SHA regularly hold pre-loved sales after school where good quality second hand uniform can be purchased for a small donation.
