- grey trousers or skirt
- maroon sweatshirt or cardigan
- white polo shirt
- black shoes or trainers
- red checked dress (spring/summer)
- plain black or navy joggin bottoms (winter)

The sweatshirt, cardigan and white polo shirt embriodered with the 'Shirland Primary School' logo should be ordered online at www.just-schoolwear.co.uk .A fleece jacket and book bag, both with the school logo, are also available.
The grey trousers or skirts may be purchased locally at many supermarkets or clothing stores. Eeach child is provided with a school cap/sunhat and water bottle by the PTFA (there is no charge for this).
Please label all clothing, especially school polo shirts, sweatshits/cardigans and outdoor coats. It is very difficult to return lost clothing that is not named.
In the interest of your child's safety and hygiene, it is recommended that they bring the following PE kit to school in a bag (not plastic please) clearly marked with their name and class name.
- 1 pair of navy or black shorts (not long length)

We ask that PE kits are taken home at the end of each term for a wash. Please note that hooded tops are NOT allowed for safety reasons. Alternitively, their school sweatshirt/caridagn may be worn.
During the summer months we ask all parents to ensure that their child brings a hat to school and also has applied sunscreen before coming to school.
Hats/Hair Coverings: Children may not wear hats, caps, handkerchiefs, bandanas, scarves, or other head coverings indoors at school. Exceptions can be made for religious and/or medical reasons.
Hair: Hair should be neat, brushed and tied back if long –for both girls and boys. It should not have tramlines, dyed elements, Mohicans or similar.
Piercings: Earrings if worn must only be small studs and either be removed by the child or left at home on PE days. If ears have been recently pierced, earrings may be taped up with Micropore tape supplied by the family and kept in their school bag. Facial piercings are not permitted.
Necklaces/Chains/Watches: Necklaces and chains are not permitted. Watches can be worn, but must be removed by the child for sporting activities. Exceptions can be made for religious and/or medical reasons.
Feet: We like the children to wear sensible flat shoes or black trainers. It is advisable that the children bring Wellington boots on snowy or very wet days, as we like to be able to go out in all weathers. Heeled shoes are not acceptable.
Hands/Nails/Make up: Children may not wear bracelets armbands, or multiple rings. Nails should be free of any artificial enhancements or colour. Make up is not permitted.
Non-Uniform Days: A non-uniform day allows a child to express his/her individuality through their attire. The expectation is for the child to wear garments that fit appropriately and are non-offensive. Any article of clothing that is deemed inappropriate for a non-uniform day, will result in the child being required to change. Sometimes for school trips other clothing is requested, please consider appropriateness for the weather conditions expected.
Health and Safety: For safety reasons jewellery must not be worn in school. Only watches and stud earrings may be worn if necessary but they must be removed for P.E. lessons by your child. If your child has recently had their ears pierced, then they will need to cover their ears for PE sessions. We also ask that you sign a form so that your child is allowed to use surgical tape.
