Whinneybanks Primary School

School Uniform

We ask that all children wear the school uniform which is as follows:

  • Bottle Green jumper/sweatshirt
  • Grey or Black skirt/trousers/jogging bottoms
  • White T-shirt
  • ‘Flat, sensible shoes/trainers – it is particularly important that children do not wear shoes with high heels as the children take part in physical exercise every day.  Shoes should be securely fastened to your child’s feet and socks must always be worn.
  • Checked green dresses in summer

For PE all pupils should wear:

  • White or green T-shirt
  • Black or green shorts

Children from Nursery to Y3 should also have a pair of soft PE shoes and are not allowed to wear trainers.

For children from Y4 to Y6 trainers are permitted provided that they have flexible soles. During the winter months pupils may bring a track suit to wear for outdoor P.E provided it is not also worn for the rest of the day.

If children do not wear uniform for any reason they should wear something equally smart in green, black, grey or white. Other colours are not allowed. Children are not allowed to wear sports clothing (such as football strips) or jeans in class.

If they arrive wearing unsuitable clothing they will be given a clean school sweatshirt or T-shirt to wear for the day.

Please note that we do not allow pupils to wear make-up, nail varnish, jewellery (other than small stud earrings), or other items such as indoor scarves in school.

If children are going out of school on trips or to represent the school in competitions they will be expected to wear a school uniform.

To help parents we are now selling bottle green sweat shirts, embroidered with the school logo.

These are available from the School Office at a cost of £8.00. PE kits are also available at a cost of £8.50 (£4.25 Shorts & £4.25 T-Shirt).

Book bags and PE bags are also available for £4.00 and water bottles for £1.00.

The following also provide a full range of uniform complete with the school logo:

It is helpful to school if all articles of clothing have the name of the owner clearly marked. If children lose clothing that is not named, especially coats, it is very difficult to find the item and return it safely to its owner.

The provision of a named shoe-bag of the drawstring type is very useful. Large bags of this sort may be purchased from the school office at the cost of £4.00. Alternatively pupils should bring their P.E. kit in a plastic carrier bag. Parents should note that we do not allow pupils to bring large, expensive sports bags to school.

Children attending swimming lessons should be provided with a towel and costume from home. They should not bring toiletries such as talc or sprays.
