Wearing school uniform can encourage a sense of belonging and pride in our school and it eliminates the competition which often arises with ‘fashion clothes’. In Calside School we strongly encourage the wearing of school uniform and we are grateful for the ongoing support of parents with this matter.
Our smart but comfortable uniform allows flexibility for the wearer and consists of:
- Grey or black trousers/skirt/pinafore
- Pale blue polo shirt with the school logo
- Royal blue sweatshirt with the school logo
- Blue blouse/shirt
- School tie
- Grey jumper/cardigan
- Blue gingham dress
Fleeces and waterproof jackets with the school logo are also available.
School uniform is ordered through the online uniform service at www.uniformeasy.com/5940923
The school have no responsibility for orders placed on the website and any queries would need to be addressed to Uniform Easy directly.
If families do not have access to the Internet, please speak to the school office staff.
The school is mostly carpeted and has under floor central heating. We therefore ask that all children change into soft-soled shoes when indoors (e.g. gym shoes or sandals) and have a shoe-bag (a carrier bag will do) in school at all times.
In order to protect pupils’ clothing we would ask parents to provide an old shirt or similar for pupils to wear during art work.
For indoor physical education, pupils are asked to wear shorts plus a change of t-shirt and suitable gym shoes which are well fitting and in good condition. (Please note that football strips are not acceptable because they inevitably cause arguments between children.) Please remember that if your child has outgrown his/her school shoes then it is likely that he/she will also require new gym shoes. In the interests of safety, children will be asked to remove watches, necklaces, bangles and ear-rings before a PE lesson.
The children will also be involved in P.E outdoors: hence the children would require extra layers including jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt, outdoor trainers and a waterproof.
Names on Your Child’s Clothes
All school uniform, P.E. kit and clothing should have your child’s name on them. Lost property is kept in the Janitor’s Office, but items all look very similar!
