School Uniform Purchase
Parents can purchase uniform online from our dedicated webpage on www.yourSchoolUniform.com. There is no minimum quantity but orders will incur a Post and Packing charge unless they are over £70.00. Parents could order together to save on this charge.
The School Office will hold one example of each size in case you have any queries about sizing, although the website gives quite clear sizing guides. Any uniform ordered can be delivered to your home address or to School (during term time) which ever is the most convenient for you within 7 – 10 working days. The website is a one stop shop for all uniform requirements such as trousers, skirts, socks, shirts etc.
If you do not have a computer to order online you will be able to order via the School Office by cheque payable to “Castle Camps Primary School Fund” and we will order from YourSchoolUniform.com for you on the 15th day (or nearest school day) of each month, term time only.
For safety reasons we ask children not to wear jewellery in school. Children who have pierced ears may wear small studs to school if they are capable of taking them out and putting them back in by themselves. Studs will need to be removed for PE, games and swimming. Ear piercing should be seriously considered by parents before being undertaken. If decided upon, we would suggest that it is done at the beginning of the summer holiday so that studs can be removed by the start of school in September. Watches may be worn, but fitbits are not permitted in school.
NAIL VARNISH & MAKE UP
Please ensure these are not worn in school.
HAIR Hair accessories such as slides, ribbons etc, should be simple and in the school colours. Long hair for both girls and boys should be permanently tied back so that it does not interfere with their learning. Extreme styles of hair are unacceptable. These include: unnatural colours (for example red/plum/purple tinted), two tone/dip-dye hair. Shaved lines, shaved patterns and/or distinct/sharp changes in length in the hair are also not acceptable. Any changes in length should be graduated throughout the style.
MOBILE PHONES & ELECTRONIC GAMES
Mobile Phones and Electronic Games are not permitted in school. Expensive toys are also discouraged. Children should not bring items to school without parent/carers knowledge.
Please Note: Children will not be allowed outside:
In the summer if they do not have a sun hat
In the winter if they do not have a coat.
