Uniform

Here at St. Robert Southwell we feel uniform is a very important aspect of the school. The discipline of adhering to a uniform code is extremely valuable for children both now and for their adult life. The children’s appearance is a joint home/school issue and parents have a vital role in encouraging their children to wear the uniform correctly and “wear it well”. We have a real pride in all our children and believe that a smart uniform will do our children justice both in school and as ambassadors for the school when out on trips.

Haircuts

Haircuts and styles are part of the uniform policy.  Long hair must be tied back and fringes should be clipped away from the eyes.  If you choose to have your child’s hair cut very short, please time it so that on their return to school, it has grown back sufficiently to meet the school requirements.  It should be of one length , with no steps, no shaved symbols and no lines.  Girls should have hair extensions and colours, etc removed before their return to school.

To ensure the children understand that this is part of the school uniform policy, children whose hair cut/style is not acceptable will be kept off the playground and may be withdrawn from school trips until the issue has been resolved.

Shoes

Your child needs black school shoes that they can fasten and put on independently and a pair of black plimsolls in their PE bag.

Coat

We go outside whatever the weather, so please make sure that your child has a black coat with them that is suitable for the weather, i.e., a light raincoat, thick winter coat etc.  You may purchase a school waterproof jacket from the school uniform supplier (optional). The coat must have your child’s name clearly marked on it, with a permanent pen OR a printed label.

You can purchase the school uniform from Mayfair Sports Shop on Kingsbury High Road.

ALL the uniform worn by the children MUST have their name clearly marked on each item, using either a permanent marker OR printed name labels. The reasons that we ask for everything to be labelled are:

  • It helps your child to feel more secure in finding and looking after their own belongings
  • It helps staff to get any items that may be lost back to their owners

We ask that you check the labels from time to time.  Often they fade or start to peel off.

Book Bags

Your child will need a school book bag, which is red with the school logo on it. This can be purchased from the school uniform supplier, or from the school office.

 Summer Hats

These are red with the school logo on the front.  They can be purchased from the school uniform supplier, or from the school office.

Winter Hats

Winter hats are red with the school logo on the front.  They can be purchased from the school uniform supplier, or from the school office. Children can also wear plain red or black gloves in the winter and a plain red or black scarf.
