Uniform

Children from Reception to Year 6 are expected to wear the academy uniform and we expect parents to support us in this. We believe that uniform is a way of bringing the children together that helps them express pride in their school. It is also an important preparation for future expectations in secondary school.  All items of clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Our uniform is:

  • Red sweatshirt or cardigan (non-decorative) 
  • White polo shirt
  • Black or grey trousers or skirt/pinafore.  Jogging trousers and leggings are not allowed.
  • Sensible footwear.  Open toed shoes are not appropriate due to health and safety reasons.  Bare feet are not allowed; children must wear socks or tights.

Uniform with the Academy logo can be ordered at the main office.  Please note that all uniform must be paid for at the point of ordering.

Uniform is not designed to be in line with current fashions.  It is by nature a more plain and simple way of dressing to suit the purpose of school. It also does not change depending on the trend of the time or particular style that is popular.  Uniform extends to appropriate accessories such as socks, tights and hair ornaments and style of dressing.

Socks and Tights

These should be a plain block colour (white, black, grey or red) and not patterned e.g. stripes or pictures.

Hair Ornaments. 

Children with long hair should tie this back to keep it tidy and for hygiene purposes. Bobbles, clips, hair bands and ribbons should be for the purpose of keeping the hair tidy and not for decorative reasons.  Large bows, clips or decorations are not appropriate and children will be asked to not wear these. These items are often fashionable and therefore are not part of school uniform.

Style of Dressing

Leggings and jogging trousers are not acceptable. If children wear boots for school these should be tucked under trousers. Knee high boots are discouraged as these are fashionable rather than practical.

Summer

Black or grey shorts may be worn as well as a simple, un-decorative, red gingham dress.

P.E

Children need appropriate clothes for P.E. lessons in order to carry out the activities safely and comfortably. At Viewley Hill we require children to wear a P.E. uniform of plain red shorts and plain white t-shirt.  These are stocked in school and can be purchased from the main office. Children also need suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls as lessons are frequently held outside. We suggest that P.E. kits are brought in a labelled bag and remain at school for the week in case there are timetable changes which require the P.E. lesson time to be altered.

Please do make sure all uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
