West Kidlington Primary & Nursery School For Parents

School Uniforms

At West Kidlington Primary School and Nursery, our school uniform policy is 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.

Jewellery

The school does not allow children to wear jewellery on health and safety grounds. However, there are two exceptions:

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

In both cases, we ask the children either to remove these objects during PE and games lessons, or to cover earrings with a plaster.

Children should not wear makeup or coloured nail varnish.

Hair

The school strongly advises that children do not have extreme haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children. Examples include patterns shaved into hair and dyed or highlighted hair.

We advise that those with long hair wear it tied back in school to reduce distraction, be comfortable on hot days and in PE, and to reduce the spread of headlice.
