Uniform

School Uniform

We believe that the children’s appearance helps to set the high standards of behaviour and personal achievement we expect at Yeoford School. We would like all children to wear school uniform, as this encourages a pride in the school and a feeling of belonging to the school community. The uniform is:-

BOYS
WINTER - School sweatshirt or royal blue jumper. Grey or black trousers.White or royal blue polo shirt. Black shoes or boots.
SUMMER - Grey or black shorts. White or school polo shirt. Black shoes.
 
GIRLS
WINTER - School sweatshirt or royal blue jumper. Grey or black trousers or skirt. White or royal blue polo shirt. Black shoes or boots.
SUMMER - Blue and white checked school dress. White or school polo shirt. Black shoes.

We would also strongly suggest, for the purposes of hygiene and to avoid distraction in the class, that hair which is long enough to be tied back, is done so. Preferably in a plait or bun.

Children change for P.E. several times a week, so it is essential for him/her to have P.E. kit in school at all times. Children must have suitable footwear for P.E. Trainers are recommended, and you may wish to provide football boots and shin pads for Class 3 children so that they can play football on the pitch. The remainder of the basic P.E. kit is school T-shirt, and blue or black sports shorts. In winter you may wish to add jogging bottoms, tracksuit top, hat (and even gloves) for football sessions, and in summer we recommend adding a sun hat, sunscreen and a bottle of water. Swimming kit is needed when we go swimming – a swimming cap is not necessary but please could children with long hair have some means of tying it back so that it does not get in the way. We appreciate that some children feel more comfortable wearing goggles. These may be worn at the teacher’s discretion. 

Please could all items of school uniform be clearly labelled with the child’s name, so that lost property can be returned to its owner. 

We also request that, for health and safety reasons, rings, necklaces and earrings should not be worn.
 
School Uniform can be bought from the school office. Fleeces, jumpers, cardigans, book bags, polo shirts and t-shirts can all be purchased. Please contact Mrs Slee in the office for further details.
