Green Street Green Primary 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, and all long hair should be tied back.

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

Shoes should be black or navy.  Black trainers are not acceptable footwear. On PE days, white trainers are required.

Book bags (purchased via Graduates with a logo or a plain red book bag from any online retailer) should be used for items needed. Rucksacks should only come into school on days when a child is attending an extra-curricular sports club.

On PE days, the children will come to school in their PE kit and stay in it all day.

This should be a red or navy tracksuit (red shorts on warmer days) with a white t-shirt (GSG logo is optional) and white trainers (Velcro fasteners and no laces for Reception)

 

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, goggles and a towel, brought in a named bag

 

Forest School clothes should consist of welly boots, old tracksuit and waterproof coat. The class teacher will advise all parents of the dates that the children will participate

 

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

SWIMMING KITS

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

  • "regulation" swimwear (not bikini or long shorts. Shorts should be above the knee only)
  • swim hat
  • swim goggles
  • towel

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). 

 

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.
