School Uniform at Ashlands

At Ashlands it is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in school organised events.

Our policy is based on the notion that the school uniform:

  • identifies the child with the school
  • promotes a sense of pride
  • generates a sense of community and belonging
  • is practical and smart
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and is good value of money
  • is designed with health and safety in mind

 It is very important that all items of clothing are clearly named

The only item the school requires to bear the school logo is the sweatshirt or cardigan. Other items of uniform are available with the logo but they may also be purchased from high street retailers without the logo e.g. plain white polo shirts.

Listed below is the list of Ashlands School uniform your child is expected to have.

 Role of parents

We ask that all parents of children at Ashlands support the school uniform policy.

We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and that it is clean, is in good repair and is named.

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in school with the exception of earring studs and small objects of religious significance. We ask the children to either remove these objects during PE or cover them with a plaster to prevent the risk of injury. For the safety of the children and to prevent the risk of injury shoes with a heel, platform soles and flip flops are not allowed due to the danger of tripping whilst running in the playground. For the same reason we would prefer children not to wear open-toed sandals but if this is not possible we ask that they wear socks.
