School Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM
We are proud of our school uniform and encourage the children to feel proud to belong to Ryarsh Primary School.  All children will be expected to wear the correct school uniform at all times, and we value highly the commitment of parents in ensuring that our children are correctly dressed for school.  We have no single recommended supplier and shopping around is obviously wise. 
Please name all clothing and personal items.

Jewellery
Children are not allowed to wear rings, necklaces, bracelets or looped earrings at school. Only small, plain studs are to be worn.  The school can accept no liability for the loss of any personal property and these items can be a positive source of danger in such lessons as physical education and craft.  As most pupils have some physical activity almost every day, earrings will have to be removed frequently.  If you are planning to have your child’s ears pierced, please make sure that it is at the beginning of the summer holiday, otherwise the ear will have to be taped during Physical Education – including swimming.  Staff are not permitted to remove children’s earrings, so please make sure that your child is able to do this independently.  Long hair should be tied back. Only plain hair bands or clips (black, brown, green or white) should be worn.  Watches, if worn, should be named – we often see two alike. Nail polish and make-up are not to be worn at any time.

We ensure our children wear protective sun hats, provided by the school, during the summer months.  Y5/Y6 may have a school baseball cap which can be purchased from the school office.

* These items can be purchased from the school office

The PTFA sells second hand (as new) uniform, donated by parents. Please ask at the office for details.
