Whilst covid mitigations are in place, such as increased ventilation in school, you are welcome to send your child into school wearing extra layers.
The Governors, staff and parents fully advocate a uniform policy for the children of Scoill Vallajeelt. We believe that a school uniform helps pupils to see themselves as part of a community, which is proud of itself and its reputation.
All official items of school uniform bearing the school logo can be purchased from Promenade T Shirts & Embroidery Limited, Queens Promenade (tel 675160).
Please note that there is a STRICT no trainers policy. If your child has to wear alternative footwear for any reason a note must be sent to the Headteacher.
Mid-grey skirts, pinafore dresses, long or trousers (no jogging bottoms or track suits).
White, grey or purple socks or tights.
White or purple polo shirt (with or without the school motif).
Purple sweatshirt or cardigan with the school motif.
Home knitted cardigans in the school colour.
A pair of sensible shoes, but not trainers.
A summer dress (purple and white gingham).
Reversible fleeces, sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, PE bags and book bags are also available. For more details please contact Promenade T Shirts & Embroidery.
Sandals are optional during the Summer months, provided that they meet our agreed uniform policy, which states: ‘Sandals should be flat, secure on the foot, and allow the child to run and play freely so that they do not cause them to trip or fall. In keeping with our usual uniform requirements, sandals worn for school should be plain and either blue, black, brown, or white.’
Remember to clearly mark all clothing and personal property with your child’s name.
A pair of white shorts together with house t-shirt should be worn. Children will be notified of their house colours and we will endeavour to ensure that family members are in the same house.
PE will often be done in bare feet but some activities may require the use of plimsolls. The shorts, T- Shirts and plimsolls must be kept in school in a PE bag. They will be sent home regularly for washing and checking.
Please note that for safety reasons we ask all children with long hair to tie their hair back when using school equipment. This is particularly important during PE and games lessons and when using some specialist equipment in science, art, food technology etc. Hair should be kept neat and in conventional styles. Hair bands, slides etc. should be kept simple.
Jewellery and make up (including nail varnish and lip-stick) are not permitted in school. Children with pierced ears may wear studded earrings, which will need to be taped over by a parent before school for PE sessions. Once the lesson is over the child can remove the tape. Staff cannot take responsibility for removing or replacing studs or for their loss.
Children may wear a watch and will be responsible for it at all times. The school will not be held responsible for any losses. Watches must be removed for PE and games lessons.
No other form of jewellery is permitted unless it is worn for religious or cultural reasons.
