Parents rightly expect the school to enforce high standards of behaviour, dress and appearance.  It is implied that acceptance is given by parents to the School Rules and Regulations when they are enrolling their son or daughter to Theydon Bois Primary School.

All children must adhere to the uniform regulations. Uniform should be worn properly both at school and when travelling to and from school.

Children should remove any items of outdoor clothing on entering the school buildings. This includes coats, hats, scarves, gloves etc.

The Senior Leadership Team and teachers at Theydon Bois Primary School will monitor children’s uniform on a regular basis. The school stocks a range of uniform which are deemed as acceptable which can be lent to children, if necessary, and if children are not dressed in the correct uniform.

PE kit including a PE sweatshirt or tracksuit and pair of socks, should be stored in a simple, named, drawstring bag which should remain at school at all times.  (A PE bag with the school logo is available if required.)

Key Stage 2 

Come to school dressed in PE kit on the days they have PE lessons or sporting activities.

 

All children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day as we know this helps their concentration and improves learning, therefore, children are encouraged to keep a water bottle on their desk.  You can either send in your own bottle or alternatively a water bottle with the school logo and space for your child’s name and class is available from the school office for a charge of £2.50.

 

Swimming Kit should be brought in to school on your child’s swimming day during the Summer Term and the first half of the Autumn Term.

 

Reception children will need a pair of Wellington boots, to stay in school, for gardening and outdoor activities.

Art and craft - Please provide your child with either an overall or an old shirt for art and craft activities to protect their uniform.

 

Second hand uniform

A big selection of second hand uniform is available from the school office for a donation.

 

Hair

Long hair ( below shoulder length)  should be tied back. Hair accessories should be minimal, plain and in school colours. Hair should be kept out of children’s eyes using headbands, clips and slides; again plain using school colours.

 

Personal property

All items of clothing and personal property should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Any unmarked lost property is kept for a reasonable period of time in the lost property box. Please ask your child to check there if he/she loses anything. Neither the school nor the Trust cannot accept responsibility for the personal property of children so please ensure that your child does not bring in any valuable items or unnecessary amounts of money.

 

Jewellery

Jewellery is not allowed, as it can be dangerous in school. Stud earrings are tolerated, but must be removed during PE. Watches may be worn, but should be named in some way, (initials in Tippex or nail varnish) and removed for P.E. The Local Authority health and safety policy states ‘that all jewellery and other personal adornments constitute a hazard and must be removed before the PE lesson’. 

 

Health and Safety Update
Essex County Council have recently reminded schools about the ruling regarding pupils taking part in PE. All pupils must remove their earrings before taking part in PE lessons. We are no longer allowed to put tape over children’s earrings and all earrings must be removed. This must take effect from the start of the summer term 2014, we have been advised that schools who fail to follow this will invalidate their insurance provided through Essex County Council.
