The school offers the following uniform that incorporates the Green Oaks Logo through our uniform supplier Brigade http://www.brigade.uk.com [search for Green Oaks Federation]:
- School jumper
- School Cardigan
- School tie
- PE T-Shirt
We have made every effort to ensure uniform is affordable and not unnecessarily branded as we are aware this can place an unreasonable burden on families. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like support with purchasing uniform of for more information on high quality second hand uniform options.
Other essentials include:
- Warm, waterproof coat with hood
- Sunhat in hot weather
Children will need to bring a coat to school every day as they go outside to play in all but the most extreme weather.
Please make sure all school uniform is clearly labelled to avoid missing items. Any unidentified clothing is placed in Lost Property and families are welcome to come in and look for lost items after school if they wish.
For health and safety reasons all children must change into different clothes for Physical Education activities.
They will need:
- Black shorts
- Green T-shirt
- Plain tracksuit or sweat shirt and joggers [black/grey/green] for outdoor games
Please send your child’s PE kit to school each week in their school rucksack or in a labelled drawstring bag.
The majority of uniform, including rucksacks can be bought from our on-line service and information on how to do this is available from the school office.
Very good quality second hand uniform can also be purchased through the Friends of Green Oaks. Please ask at the school office or contact the Friends of Green Oaks for more information.
Jewellery and watches
Children should not wear jewellery to school as this can easily be lost or cause injuries.
If it is necessary for your child to wear earrings please make sure that they are studs to reduce the risk of injury. Similarly, if your child has to wear a medical bracelet please inform the school office and your child’s class teacher. The school cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injuries caused by wearing jewellery to school.
Haircuts and hair accessories
Any hairbands or clips should be simple and in colours that match the school uniform.
Please ensure that haircuts also reflect the community and reputation of the school. We, therefore, discourage hair colouring, shaved patterns, or excessively spiked hair!
The school is fully inclusive and recognises that there may be a need for some pupils to wear head wear or deviate from the agreed school uniform for religious or cultural reasons. We will always seek to work with parents to understand different cultures and religions and to ensure that all of our pupils are welcomed and feel part of our community.
Toys and personal belongings
We do not allow children to bring toys or personal belongings to school unless asked to do so by the class teacher as these can be lost, damaged or cause a significant distraction to themselves or others!
Occasionally a child needs a cuddly toy or something familiar during a difficult time. Please make sure that you inform your child’s class teacher if this is the case and they will make sure that there is a safe place to keep it at school.
Children are NOT permitted to have mobile phones in school under any circumstances.
