Uniform 

At Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School the policy is that all pupils wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours.

Some items of uniform can be bought from Mapac, our uniform provider, whilst the majority are easily available, at very competitive prices, at local shops including supermarkets.

The school’s uniform will change from September 2021, but pupils are still able to wear the previous uniform of jumpers and cardigans until September 2022.

Uniform Policy

The full school's uniform policy is available here.

Jewellery

For health and safety reasons we do not allow pupils to wear jewellery at school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears and small objects of religious significance.

Pupils are required to remove any items of jewellery during PE lessons to prevent them from causing injury. Please note: staff are not permitted to remove earrings.

If parents/carers are considering having their child’s ears pierced, we would request that this is done at the start of the summer holidays. This will allow the ears to heel so that earrings can be removed for PE lessons.

Watches

Wrist watches or fitness trackers may be worn, but only for the purpose of telling the time and/or counting steps. ‘Smart’ watches and fitness trackers linked to mobile phones are not permitted.

Hair Accessories

Hair bands, ribbons/bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be plain and either burgundy, blue, black or white in colour. Hair bands should not have large flowers attached.

Make-up and Nail Varnish

Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school.

Hairstyles

Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school.

The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and pupils should not have decorative patterns or ‘tram lines’ cut into their hair or have their hair coloured or dyed with extreme colours.

For health and safety reasons and to ensure it does not distract from learning, we advise that long hair be tied back.

Footwear

For health and safety reasons we do not allow pupils to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels. All pupils are required to wear plain black shoes without logos as stated in the uniform list.

Please do not send pupils to school wearing canvas shoes, loose slip-ons or trainers.

Please only send your child to school in lace-up shoes when they are able to tie their own laces.

Clothing

Trousers must be school uniform style – not jeans material, skinny, leggings, jeggings or baggy.

Shorts must be school uniform style and approximately knee length.

Skirts should be about knee length.

Only plain white, grey or black socks (not multi-coloured or patterned) or grey or black tights should be worn to school.

Uniform for Pupils entitled to Pupil Premium

All pupils who are eligible for pupil premium are entitled to a pack of uniform each academic year, which includes a polo shirt; sweatshirt/cardigan; PE t-shirt; PE shorts and a PE bag.Parents/carers of pupils entitled to free school meals, should complete an order form and return it to the School Office in confidence.

Book Bags

When a child joins the school, they will receive a book bag free of charge. When pupils move up from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2, they will each be given a KS2 book bag free of charge.

The Friends of School kindly provide the book bags for new pupils and the pupils moving into Key Stage 2.

The Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 bookbags are also available to purchase from Mapac.
