Uniform


SCHOOL UNIFORM

At Moordown St John’s, children wear a uniform to foster a sense of belonging and corporate identity. We want them to take a pride in their appearance, always looking smart.

Our school outfitters are CJI Clothing. Parents are, however, at liberty to purchase standard items (eg. trousers, skirts, blouses, shirts etc) elsewhere if preferred.

All children’s clothing (including underclothing and footwear) must be labelled with the owner’s name.

Appearance

Jewellery

  • We strongly discourage the wearing of any form of jewellery in school as it can easily cause physical injury and get lost.
  • Loom bands, friendship bracelets and other wrist jewellery should not be worn in school.
  • Only plain, non protruding ear studs are permitted (one per ear). For safety reasons they should be removed/taped over on days when there is PE, games or swimming.

Hair, Nail Varnish and Tattoos/Transfers

  • We require that all children’s hair is neat in appearance and tidy : Long hair should be tied back with a plain and simple navy blue or red fastening . Elaborate hair ties (eg big bows or flowers) are not permitted.
  • Pupils should not come to school with ‘extreme’ hairstyles, bold colour changes or ‘over gelled’ or ‘over moussed’ hair. Similarly patterns shaved into the hair are not acceptable.
  • Children should not have painted nails or tattoos/transfers in school.

Clothing

  • Please note that pupils are not permitted to wear fashion items
    (eg: sweat shirts, hooded tops etc.)
  • We encourage the wearing of Moordown St. John’s baseball caps(navy with red logo) in the sunshine.
  • Trainers are not permitted to be worn in school instead of school shoes. If children cannot wear shoes for a medical reason then we must receive a letter of explanation and children may wear their black plimsolls.

If your child is unable to meet the dress code requirement at any time we would appreciate a letter to keep us fully informed.
