The school strongly encourages the wearing of school uniform because it is practical and hard wearing and helps promote a sense of belonging and a pride in the school.
School colours are royal, light blue and grey. Clothing in these colours is available from chain stores or mail order catalogues. Sweatshirts, polo shirts and fleece jackets embroidered with the school badge must be ordered through our uniform suppliers Stevensons as well as a plain, royal blue shower proof fleece jacket and shoe bags. Book bags and shoe bags are available to purchase from the School office.
Each child will be provided with a T-shirt in their house colour, pair of shorts and a draw string bag, also in their house colour. This coloured PE kit will enable the children to feel part of their 'house' and the school whilst also looking smart when representing the school at external events and Sports Day.
Please provide tracksuit bottoms and a jumper to enable them to participate in outdoor PE lessons comfortably. Otherwise they will wear their school PE kit. Please supply a pair of trainers or plimsolls for them to use in PE which would need to be labelled with your child's initials. All PE kits are to remain in school and will be sent home each half term to be washed.
There is no compulsory uniform in the Nursery, but school colours are as above. School sweatshirts must be ordered through Stevensons as per School uniform paragraph above. We encourage children to dress themselves as this boosts their confidence, so please choose clothes for them for Nursery that are easy to put on, fasten and take off.
To help us keep the school clean and protect the carpeted areas, your child will need a change of shoes for indoor wear. Stevensons also sells the old-fashioned style shoe bags, which can be left on your child's peg - http://stevensons.co.uk/School/HoltsmereEndSchoolHemelHempstead/Browse
We actively encourage children to take home school books to read to or with parents and adults. A book bag will protect and prolong the life of our books. These strong nylon bags can be purchased from the school office.
ALL school and Nursery clothing should be clearly marked with your child's name to avoid confusion and loss. Sew-in tapes are preferable to ink marking, which soon wash off. You can order Wovina name tapes via the school office. We encourage care of belongings, but cannot accept responsibility for their loss or damage.
Jewellery is best not worn for school. For children who have pierced ears, simple studs please as ornate and sleeper-type earrings are dangerous in P.E. and have to be removed.
