School Uniforms

AtWest Kidlington Primary School and Nursery, our school uniform policyis based on the notion that a school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school.
  • Engenders a feeling of community and belonging.
  • Is practical and smart.
  • Identifies the children with the school.
  • Is not distracting in class.
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
  • Is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents/carers.
  • Has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Theschool does not allow children to wear jewellery on health and safetygrounds. However, there are two exceptions:

  • 1 pair of stud earrings in pierced ears
  • Small objects of religious significance where this has been agreed with the headteacher.

Inboth cases, we ask the children either to remove these objects duringPE and games lessons, or to cover earrings with a plaster.

Childrenshould not wear makeup or coloured nail varnish.


Theschool strongly advises that children do not have extreme haircutsthat could serve as a distraction to other children. Examples includepatterns shaved into hairand dyedor highlighted hair.

Weadvise that those with long hair wear it tied back in school toreduce distraction, be comfortable on hot days andinPE, andto reduce the spread of headlice.
