School uniform

The Department for Education strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils.

School uniform is required for Leigh Beck Primary School pupils. All items of clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name.

Our school uniform consists of a maroon sweatshirts embroidered with the school logo (which is encouraged) or alternatively, plain maroon jumpers, cardigans, sweatshirts are also permitted. Maroon school fleeces can be worn as a jacket outside. White shirts or blouses or polo shirts are to be worn with black tailored trousers or skirts. Children need to wear black shoes. No jeans, tracksuit style trousers or trainers are permitted. 

During the summer term, black tailored shorts may be worn. Summer dresses can be red and white gingham check. Sleeveless, low necked or cropped tops and short skirts/shorts are unsuitable as are peddle pusher style or lycra shorts.

PE Kit

White (plain) T shirt / black shorts, trainers or plimsolls. Children should change footwear for PE. Earrings are not to be worn during PE lesson for Health and Safety reasons. Children need to be able to remove these themselves, or to attend school without them on PE days. 

Sun Protection 

There is medical advice that excessive exposure to sunshine when young can cause problems in later life. The best protection is clothing and Health Authorities advise that children wear suitable clothing with a hat and are protected by sun cream of at least factor 15. 

Protective Aprons

An apron to protect clothes during craft activities should also be provided and kept in school - an old adult shirt worn backwards is perfectly adequate.
