As our school has a uniform - which parents generally prefer - we do expect every child to wear it.
We sell uniform items with the school logo on direct from the school, including polo shirts with a collar and red sweatshirts, cardigans and fleeces. They can be purchased from FOSNS PTA (Friends of St Nicholas' Primary School) and order forms can be downloaded from the FOSNS pages here or collected from the FOSNS PTA Box outside the school office.
Other items, such as girls' skirts, trousers and dresses, and boys' trousers, can be bought from high-street shops and supermarkets inexpensively.
We ask parents to uphold our uniform policy and maintain the good standards for which our school is known. If you have difficulty affording uniform at any time, please ask at the office as we may be able to help.
For health and safety reasons, children are not allowed to wear jewellery to school except for small, plain, stud earrings.
Clothing for PE should be kept in a named bag on your child’s peg. If for any reason a child is without a kit, they will be expected to wear one provided by the school. For safety reasons, long hair must be tied back for PE and any jewellery removed.
For swimming lessons, children will need a swimming costume, towel and swimming hat. Swimming hats can be purchased from the school office.
Children need a letter from parents if they are unable to participate in PE.
Please do not allow children to wear jewellery to school. This includes rings and earrings. Plain studs are accepted for pierced ears, but not encouraged. They must be removed for days when your child participates in PE/swimming activities, including dance, games and gymnastics lessons. If your child has recently pierced ears, please tape them before coming to school. If your child comes for a lesson wearing large earrings, they will be asked to remove them for the lesson. Teachers cannot remove earrings.
It is fashionable for children to bring very large sports bags to school but this causes us some problems. There is limited space in the cloakrooms, making it difficult to hang both coats and large bags on the pegs. Please keep bags to a sensible size.
