School Uniform

All pupils at St. Aidan's are expected to wear the school uniform. Our uniform has been chosen so it is affordable to our St. Aidan's families and is easy to obtain. Parents can choose whether to buy our school uniform with our badge on it or plain uniform. The choice is yours.

We want our children to look smart in their school uniform. This really reflects the aims of our school and gives everyone a sense of belonging.  Children are not expected to wear any form of make-up in school, for example painted fingernails, false or gel nails, fake tan or eye make-up. It is advisable that long hair is tied back to help prevent the spread of headlice. Extreme hairstyles (e.g. shaving lines, spikes, gel, dye) are discouraged. We find that a neat, tidy appearance helps to create a good work ethic.

Our plain uniform is available to buy at affordable prices in our local supermarkets. We also have wonderful local charity shops, such as Rummage Rescuers, where St. Aidan's pre-loved uniform can be bought.

Each child, when they start in Reception, are given a bookbag (free of charge) with our school logo on. Bookbags are also available to buy at our school office.

Jewellery

As a result of a number of incidents involving jewellery in school, the Governors have decided that in the interest of the children’s safety, no jewellery should be worn in school, other than a watch and ear studs. No ear studs are allowed during PE.  They must be removed or, if within 6 weeks of piercing, covered by the child.

Please clearly label all coats, jumpers and other items of clothing with the child’s name. The school cannot be held responsible for missing items of clothing that are un-named.
