At Runwell Community Primary School we seek to promote a strong sense of community and belonging, and believe this is enhanced by our pupils wearing a consistent uniform.  We believe that this uniform should be practical and fit for purpose, enabling children to learn and play in an unencumbered way whilst still looking smart and promoting a sense of pride in their appearance.

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories should be appropriate for school wear and matched to the school colours of blue and white.  For safety reasons overly large bows and elaborate hair bands, clips and extensions should not be worn.   Hair bands and clips should lie close to the head.

Religious Observance/Medical Conditions

If you wish for your child to wear any other/additional items for the purposes of religious observance or due to medical requirements please make the school aware so that your child is not challenged by staff for non-adherence to the policy.

All participants in a PE lesson (children and staff) should always wear appropriate clothing for the activity being carried out. It is important that this kit is available in school every day and taken home as appropriate to be washed.
