May we inform parents of the Directors’ policy on the Academy’s dress code.
All pupils including Nursery children are required to wear school uniform.
Generally smart appearance is encouraged (e.g. shirts inside trousers/skirts; caps removed in school).
Black or Grey Trousers or Skirt/Pinafore dress
Blue Sweatshirt or Blue Cardigan
White Blouse or White Polo shirt
Plain Black Shoes/Plain Black Trainers/Black Sandals (all footwear should be black, flat, sensible and safe)
Summer weight dress in plain blue, blue check or stripes. Black or Grey Shorts (should be smart school shorts not the PE type)
Nursery children do not need a PE kit.
Children are expected to change into the following: Black Shorts (not knee length), Black Leotard (if preferred), White T-shirt, Trainers or Plimsolls, Tracksuit in inclement weather.
The basic premise for PE clothes is health and safety. If PE kit is not brought to school a spare kit may be provided. In order to be flexible because of changes in weather, PE may take place outside or inside, so please ensure you send your child with their full kit, as outlined above.
It is very important that all clothing and property are clearly marked with your child’s name.
At the discretion of the Principal/Senior Leadership Team, extremes of hair style/colour are not allowed. Lines/shapes or patterns cut into hair and extreme hair colours are classed as ‘extremes’ as are braids/cornrows.
Earrings and other jewellery (except a simple watch) are not to be worn at school. If pupils come to school wearing jewellery we may ask them to remove it themselves, which may lead to accidental loss. For this reason it is much simpler if jewellery is not worn to school. If ears are newly pierced, pupils will be monitored and then we will ask them to remove earrings after six weeks. Earrings must be covered with tape during this six week period for health and safety reasons. Note:- Please ensure any ear piercing is carried out during the long summer break to ensure earrings can be removed in September. Parents may be interested to note that Ridgewood school currently operates a zero tolerance policy on earrings which states that no earrings at any time are permitted.
Make-up/nail varnish/nail art/tattoos – must not be worn in school.
