Please make sure that your child comes to school ready to learn and dressed in full school uniform every day. If there are any difficulties experienced then please let your child’s senior teacher know and they may be able to help support you.
Uniform can be purchased from Rough Cut Casuals Ltd at 16 CHapel Market, Islington N1 9EZ, or online at www.directschoolwear.co.uk
As a reminder the uniform is as follows:
A school T-shirt must be worn by every child, unless they are wearing a tunic or summer dress. School sweat shirts and fleeces are not required, but where such garments are worn they must be the school design.
We are aware that many children like to wear long sleeved T shirts when the weather is cooler and we have provided a long sleeved version of our new school polo shirt for this purpose. Children may wear a long sleeved shirt under their school T shirt as long as the visible parts are plain navy blue.
All trousers, shorts, tunic dresses and skirts must be a plain navy blue or black. Jeans, cords, leggings and tracksuit bottoms are not acceptable school uniform. Knee socks can be worn with shirts and shorts but they should be navy blue or white. Short ‘hot pants’ and mini skirts are not allowed. Children in Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception), where indoor and outdoor learning are continuous, can wear plain navy tracksuit bottoms. Frayed, combat and torn trouser designs are not acceptable uniform.
From April to October half term, blue check summer dresses may be worn.
Children should wear plain black or navy shoes or trainers (Not multi coloured) to school. High heels and boots are not permitted. In the summer school sandals (black or navy) can be worn. Parent choosing open toed sandals should be aware of the risks in the school environment, climbing stairs, running at play times, when making this choice.
Hair and Jewellery
Where possible long hair should be tied back during school time. Head bands and scarves, etc should be navy blue.
No jewellery other than a watch and/or stud earrings can be worn.
Any other jewellery worn will be taken in by class teachers and returned directly to parents.
The school council redesigned the school t-shirt and sweatshirt.The previous t-shirt and sweatshirt design does not need to be completely replaced until September 2013.
Pupils should wear a plain white t-shirt with navy or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms. Pupils should wear black or navy plimsolls or trainers on their feet for PE or Sport.
Our senior teachers check uniform regularly. Please do not be offended if they remind you about breaches of uniform as we as a school feel that the uniform is one of the key elements that have helped develop a sense of Canonbury’s “family” and togetherness in recent times, as well as preparing children for life at secondary school and the workplace where uniforms and clothing expectations are expected.
