Uniform - Albury
We feel that the wearing of our school uniform is an important aspect of our school. It encourages a community feel and relates to the values we endeavour to impact to our children, including those of taking pride in themselves and their appearance, and of collective pride and ownership of their school. Our uniform looks smart and is very practical (no arguments in the morning about what to wear!) and we encourage all pupils to wear it.
Uniform is not required for the pre-school children, however, we would suggest they wear old clothes that are easy for them to manage (when getting changed, using the toilet etc), perhaps track suit trousers and a loose fitting top.
For the Early Years children (Pre-school, Nursery and Reception) they will also require a weather appropriate hat, coat, wellies, PE kit, water bottle and a snack.
All items of clothing and equipment should be clearly named.
Please can you make sure your child/children come to school dressed correctly.
(Although below uniform is separated into a boys and girls option we recognise the right to personal choice and so if a person choose to wear uniform from either selection this is accepted at our school).

Jewellery (including make-up, gelled hair etc) is not allowed. The only exceptions are stud earrings, medical identification tags and items following recognised cultural traditions. Stud earrings must be removed for PE and this is the child’s responsibility. Children may wear wrist watches. However, the school is not responsible for watches or items of personal property lost or damaged during the school day.
All children must come to school with neat, tidy and brushed/combed hair. If hair is long, it must be neatly tied back at all times.
Lost property is kept in the blue box in the corridor. Items not collected at the end of each term are either recycled or thrown away. Please label all of your child’s clothing and equipment clearly with their name.
We like to encourage our children to wear correct school uniform, preferably with the Albury logo, as this gives the children pride in the school they attend and helps to identify our children when out and about.
