School Uniform

We are very proud of our school uniform. It contributes much to the ethos of the school.
Wearing school uniform encourages a pride in being a member of Ruskington Chestnut street Church of England primary. It ensures that children are dressed appropriately for school activities. Parents and staff actively encourage the wearing of School Uniform.

Girls

  • Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers
  • White polo shirt with school logo
  • Red or grey tights
  • Red sweatshirt with school logo
  • Black shoes (not trainers)

There is no objection to girls wearing trousers in winter months or to anyone wearing shorts and t-shirts in the summer providing the school's colour scheme is adhered to.
Children are encouraged to bring hats to school to wear outside during the summer.

P.E

For P.E lessons it is essential that the children are correctly dressed in a manner appropriate to the activity. Plain white T-shirt, black or navy shorts and plimsolls. Red T-shirts featuring the school logo can also be purchased from our school office. Children may change into plain trainers for outdoor games lessons only. Tracksuit bottoms and jackets, in a dark colour, are permitted for outdoor PE.

For safety during PE children with long hair need to have this tied up.


Labelling your uniform.
It is essential that every item of clothing and footwear is clearly marked with the child’s name. We will always do our best to recover items that go missing, but unless they are clearly marked it is sometimes very difficult, with many similar items, to establish the correct owner. Items of value should not be brought to school. The school accepts no legal liability to make good any loss.

Jewellery

Jewellery should not be worn at school. Those with freshly pierced ears may wear one set of studs.
