We have School uniform for collective smartness, to develop a sense of pride in belonging to St Francis School and for social reasons. The uniform is designed to be practical and suitable for the children’s working day in school. We hope that parents will support our policy.
All items of clothing must be labelled with your child’s name.
- Navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan preferably with the School logo
- White shirt or blouse or white or navy blue short-sleeved “aertex” shirt preferably with the School logo
- Charcoal grey school trousers or shorts, skirt or pinafore dress
- Navy and white checked dress
- White or grey socks, blue or grey tights
- Sensible, low-heeled black shoes
- Sun hat to be worn as appropriate
Physical Education (P.E)
Each child is placed in a house and they wear their specific house coloured round neck T shirt.
We have four houses: Longleat (yellow), Bowood (red), Lydiard (green), Avebury (purple)
P.E. Kit – House T-shirt, plain black shorts, dark trainers, royal blue sweatshirt and joggers (alternatively black or navy joggers)
Bags – school book bag to school or a small backpack.
Lunch boxes should be small.
Every child needs a named water bottle. The children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day (alternative (non-fizzy) drinks are only permitted with lunch)
Longer hair must be tied up. All hair accessories must be small and preferably in school colours.
The determining factor is to keep the children safe.
Children may wear watches, but these must be removed for PE and some other activities.
Only small stud earrings may be worn and these must be removed or covered for PE session.
No other jewellery unless agreed with the Headteacher for a medical or religious reason.
