At King William Street C.E. Primary School we encourage all of our learners to take a pride in their appearance. Our school policy is that all children wear school uniform when attending school and when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We feel that wearing a school uniform fosters a sense of identity and belonging, promotes the ethos of the school and is a way of showing that the children are ready, respectful and safe.
We have thought carefully about our school uniform and have chosen it to be comfortable and practical for primary aged children whilst also being affordable for families.
Our school uniform is:
All of our school uniform and PE kit can be bought from high street shops and supermarkets. Children can wear a royal blue sweatshirt/cardigan or jumper with or without the school logo.

Accessories and Jewellery
Hair accessories such as slides, ribbons, bobbles, etc, should be fairly simple and in school colours.
Hair style should avoid being extreme in style and we ask that children do not have their hair dyed/coloured.
Children must not wear makeup.
Children are allowed to wear one pair of plain, small stud earrings in the lobe of each ear. These must be removed by the child before PE lessons. If they are unable to remove earrings themselves, please provide your child with plasters or tape which they can use to cover up their own earrings before PE lessons.
Watches may be worn but these must be removed for any PE activity. Smart watches or any other type of watch that can access the internet may not be worn.
Any unidentified items of school uniform will be taken to the Fishbowl and placed in the Lost Property container. Children are encouraged to look here to reclaim lost property, on the understanding that the found item will be clearly named. Children can become upset as a result of lost clothing. Please help us to reunite lost items of clothing with their owners by labelling items with your child’s name.
