We pride ourselves in looking smart with our school uniform. Wearing uniform promotes a sense of community within the school and allows children to demonstrate their pride in their school, both within school and when they are out in the local community.
Following the merging of the infant and junior schools to form Cheam Park Farm Primary Academy we are currently redeveloping the uniform and will keep you up to date on any changes. In the meantime you should continue to follow the policies set out below.
You can buy school uniform online at two different websites: Schoolwear Inc allows you to buy uniform quickly without setting up an account; Stitch Design asks you to create an account – the advantage being it will keep your details for future purchases.
Reception to Year 2
Years 3 to 6
* Special ties are awarded for specific achievements and outstanding contributions to school life – these, along with responsibility ties for Year 6, may be worn instead of the standard school tie.
Please mark all clothing with your child’s name, including shoes. All your child’s school wear should be practical and hard-wearing and they should always have an outdoor coat with them at school.
GAMES and PE KIT
Games and PE (including swimming when appropriate) are compulsory subjects under the national curriculum and pupils should come to school equipped to take part in all lessons. If you wish your child to be excused temporarily for health reasons, please send a written request to their class teacher.
In Nursery, Reception and Years 1 and 2, PE kits including t-shirts, shorts, tracksuit and plimsolls should be left in school at all times.
In Years 3 to 6 your child will need:
Games activities take place in the playground or on the field each term and plain tracksuits or jogging bottoms with a jumper (no hoods) are advisable in cold weather.
Please mark your child’s PE and games kits with their name and bring to school in a clearly named drawstring bag to help prevent loss.
Jewellery, hair and make-up
Children are not allowed to wear personal jewellery such as rings, earrings or bracelets to school. In pierced ears, a plain, round stud may be worn but these must be removed for physical activities such as PE and games (including dance, gymnastics and swimming). If studs cannot be removed from newly pierced ears, children will be asked to cover the sharp point of the stud with adhesive plaster.
We do allow children to wear watches but they remain the responsibility of the child at all times. If you would like your child to wear clothing or jewellery specific to a particular religious belief please speak to their class teacher to discuss potential issues of educational standards and security.
For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back at all times. Only green or dark coloured hair bands should be worn. No extreme styles of haircuts or eyebrow shavings are allowed; hair must be of a natural colour and not dyed.
Make-up and nail varnish are not allowed to be worn at school at any time.
