Jewellery   Children should not wear any jewellery to school other than watches and ear sleepers or studs.  We cannot accept responsibility for accidents or loss.

PE Clothing

The children have PE twice a week, so it is essential for reasons of safety and hygiene that    

they have suitable clothing at school to change into for these lessons.  This should consist of:

Indoor PE Kit

  • Red, Blue or White t-shirt
  • Gym shorts (i.e. no belts, buckles or zips)
  • Plain leotard if preferred for apparatus work

Outdoor PE Kit

  • Trainers (socks, if heading to the field in the summer term)
  • Plain t-shirt and gym shorts or tracksuit bottoms

Both kits should be clearly marked with child’s name, and kept in a named bag. 

NO JEWELLERY to be worn for PE lessons (this includes earrings or studs).  Long hair must be tied back.  These are important safety measures which we are required to enforce.

If studs cannot be removed it is essential they are covered with micropore tape.

Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly marked with name and class to ensure safe return in the event of loss.

School Uniform

The school has a simple and practical uniform which all children are strongly encouraged to wear. This helps to ensure that the children are dressed in a safe, suitable and smart way. It helps to create a sense of equality between the pupils themselves as well as identifying them as Downs Junior School pupils to the outside world. A simple uniform supports the school in remaining special and helps everyone concentrate on the main business of teaching and learning.

We hope all parents will support the school and send children in school uniform.

Guidelines

  • Navy or Red Sweatshirt
  • Navy, Red or white polo/t-shirt or white shirt/blouse
