School uniform is currently not compulsory at West Oxford however children are expected to dress smartly as well as for comfort and practicality.
We aim to encourage children to take pride in their personal appearance and have regard for standards of personal hygiene. Appropriate, well fitting, low healed footwear should be worn so that they can run and jump around safely at playtime.
We do require all children to have a school fleece or coat to be worn on school outings and walks around the locality.
Children must change into PE kit for PE lessons. PE is an important and compulsory part of the curriculum. If a child comes to school without their PE kit a letter will be sent home informing parents. If your child is fit and healthy enough to attend school they are therefore able to take part in PE lessons; exception from PE lessons will only be granted if a valid reason is given by the parent, via a note.
The school uniform, should you opt for your child to wear it is;
Fleece with the school logo*
Polo shirt with school logo*
Grey or black trousers, skirt, shorts or pinafore
Green sweatshirt with school logo*
All children are expected to change for PE for reasons of hygiene and safety and in view of this it would be helpful if you could equip your child as follows:
White T-shirt (plain or with school logo)*
Black/Navy shorts (jogging bottoms and sweatshirt for outdoor PE on colder days)
Trainers or plimsolls
Swimming Kit (year 4-6 only)
Swimming trunks/swimsuit, swimming hat, towel
ALL CHILDREN SHOULD CARRY THEIR PE & SWIMMING KIT TO AND FROM SCHOOL IN A NAMED DRAWSTRING BAG*.
NO CARRIER BAGS PLEASE.
* school wear is available from the school office, please fill in a Uniform Order Form
Please ensure that children have suitable clothing for the weather i.e. waterproof coat in wet weather, hat in hot weather.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NAME ALL YOUR CHILD’S CLOTHING, COATS, FOOTWEAR AND BELONGINGS ETC IN PERMANENT MARKER OR WITH PURPOSE MADE LABELS (see below for suppliers).
We aim to have zero lost property.
