We are proud of our uniform at Wantage CE Primary School and we expect to see every child, from FS1 (Reception Class) up, wearing our school uniform every day.
OR Plain grey, full-length, trousers of a suitable style, tailored appropriately.
Unacceptable trousers include those wider than shoes, skinny trousers, jeans, chino style trousers and those with large exposed buttons or zips.
OR Plain grey shorts of a suitable style which must be knee length (or just above),
tailored appropriately. Unacceptable shorts include those wider than shoes, lycra, jeans, chino style shorts and those with large exposed buttons or zips.
You can order our uniform online. Visit the Mapac website to view the range and purchase through the store to be delivered to your home or school.
For swimming all students will require a swimming costume, a towel and a swimming hat. Boys are not allowed to wear long shorts in the pool and girls must wear a one-piece costume.
Football boots are permitted for activities such as football and rugby. It is not necessary for pupils to have them.
One small plain stud in each ear lobe only – no other studs are allowed. A watch may also be worn. Ideally both will be removed for PE but, if a child struggles to remove their earrings they may cover their ears with a suitable fabric eg, micropore tape.
Any hair accessory must be plain red (no bows, names, sparkles etc).
Must be of a sensible length, style and a natural colour (at the discretion of the school). Extremely short razor lines cut into the hair, non-natural colours, fully or partially shaved hair, or excessive hair gel are unacceptable. Long hair will ideally be neatly tied back but must be kept off the eyes at all times and securely tied back for PE lessons.
No make-up should be worn during the school day. Nail polish is not permitted. Temporary tattoos are not permitted. Pupils wearing nail polish, temporary tatoos or make-up will be asked to remove it immediately.
If in any doubt about any aspect of the dress code, please ask a teacher or member of the office staff before committing to a purchase or allowing your child to commit to a change in appearance!
Please note that failure of any student to comply with school uniform regulations and dress code will result with the student being loaned and expected to wear ‘spare’ uniform which will be provided by the school. Parents are expected to wash and return the loaned items within 3 working days. Pupils with inappropriate hair styles or other personal changes may be required to work in isolation until they comply with the school’s uniform policy.
The 'Friends' frequently run second hand uniform sales of good quality clothes at a fraction of the new price.
