At Alderley Edge Community Primary School, it is our policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside of school hours.
AIMS FOR SCHOOL UNIFORM:
Promotes a sense of pride
Engenders a sense of community and belonging
Identifies children with the school
It is practical and smart
Makes children feel equal to their peers

Our basic school uniform comprises of the following items:
Grey trousers, skirt or shorts
A plain, white polo shirt (Branded items are available)
A plain navy jumper or cardigan (Branded items are available)
Sensible black shoes NOT trainers

Tel: 01625 500552

A small, functional hair band, clip or bobble may be worn.
Headwear worn for religious reasons must be grey or navy blue.
In winter, wellies/boots may be worn to school, but changed for school shoes when the pupils arrive at school.
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children e.g. shaved designs; unnatural colours; Mohawk cuts.
For health and safety reasons jewellery must not be worn. The exceptions to this rule are for a single pair of plain gold/silver stud earrings, small/discreet wrist watches and small objects of religious significance.
Make up and nail varnish is not permitted.
The school PTA has a collection of pre-loved uniform available.
All uniform should be labelled clearly with your child's name.
Reasonable requests to vary the policy, in particular to meet the needs of any individual pupil to accommodate their religion or belief, ethnicity, disability or other special considerations should be made in writing to the Headteacher. The school will look sympathetically at such requests.
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair. If the school has a problem with clothing that a pupil is wearing parents will be contacted to resolve the issue. If families are struggling with the purchase of school uniform they should contact the school.
The school will consult parents before making significant changes to the policy.
In line with guidance from the Department for Education: Teachers can discipline pupils for breaching the school’s rules on appearance or uniform.
This should be carried out in accordance with the school’s published behaviour policy
Please try and ensure your child/ren wear the appropriate school uniform every day.
