MMMMM

We consider it important that children attending Dove Bank Primary come to school in an appropriate form of dress, which will not only be functional but will help them to adopt a responsible attitude to the school and the task of learning.

The Governing Body, in consultation with parents have recommended that school uniform should be encouraged and that the standard uniform should be as follows:

Girls:

  • Royal blue sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece jacket with the school logo (available from the school office)
  • White or pale blue polo shirt or blouse
  • Black or grey skirt/pinafore dress/culottes/uniform straight leg or boot cut trousers
  • Black outdoor shoes which may be buckled, laced or slip-on and of an appropriate height for school
  • Black plimsolls – indoor footwear
  • Plain white/dark socks or navy/black/grey tights if desired
  • Blue checked dress (optional for the Summer Term)

Boys:

  • Royal blue sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece jacket with the school logo
  • White or pale blue polo shirt or shirt
  • Plain black or grey trousers or shorts
  • Black outdoor shoes which may be buckled, laced or slip-on
  • Black plimsolls – indoor footwear
  • Plain dark socks

Please note that trainers, sports tops, leggings or jeans are not part of school uniform. So that all pupils look smartly dressed, and part of the ‘Dove Bank Team’ we politely request that such items are not worn to school.

P. E. and Games – The school expects children to come to school with a suitable PE kit:

  • In Key Stage 1 this would ideally be: A pair of blue or black shorts, plain white t-shirt/polo shirt, black plimsolls, blue or black tracksuit/jogging bottoms and tracksuit top/sports jacket, socks (for girls wearing tights to school).
  • In Key Stage 2 this would ideally be: A pair of blue or black shorts, blue or black tracksuit/jogging bottoms and tracksuit top/sports jacket, plain white t-shirt/polo shirt, trainers.
  • Swimming kit should consist of: a swimming cap, towel, a one piece swimsuit for girls or above the knee short/trunks for boys.

P.E. kit should normally stay in school throughout the week; we would suggest however that it is taken home about half-termly for washing.
