|All children at Whitehill wear school uniform.
The school uniform is electric blue sweatshirt and gold polo shirt. Both items are embroidered with the school logo. Light grey school trousers or skirts may be worn along with grey tights or grey/white socks. Stretchy fabric or leggings are not permitted. Checked or striped dress in blue and white may be worn in the summer term.
Children will need a weather-proof coat as a practical garment as we will try and get outside at break and lunch even if it is not completely dry.
Long hair should be tied back. No dramatic hairstyles including shaved patterns or dramatic variance in layer length should be worn. Small, plain headbands may be worn.
For pupils with pierced ears, a single pair of small, suitable studs may be worn, at your discretion. The school may insist that these are removed or covered for PE lessons.
Children need substantial footwear at all times and black shoes which have soles with a good safe grip are needed for outdoor wear. Each child should keep a change of shoes in school for indoor wear and we recommend black slip-on plimsolls, as they are cheap and easy to change in and out of. We do want to keep the inside environment as clean and safe as possible.
The school uniform is available from Beat School Uniforms in Hermitage Road.
PLEASE MARK ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING WITH A LAUNDRY PEN OR NAME TAPES.
The P.E. kit comprises of:
Trainers for outdoor P.E. or games.
Indoor P.E. will be carried out in bare feet, for agility and safety.
Jogging pants may be worn in winter but these must be electric blue. Parents may also like to consider an additional school sweatshirt and spare white socks as part of their PE Kit.
There will be opportunities to play football throughout the school and at some stage the question of football boots will arise. Unless your child is playing regularly there is no need to buy expensive boots. In the early stages, a pair of trainers would be sufficient. If a pupil attends one of our football clubs, they must have shin pads which are covered with long socks.
