Uniform

 

 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. 

You are able to purchase school uniform in several ways - through Stevensons website http://stevensons.co.uk/School/HoltsmereEndSchoolHemelHempstead/Browse, by calling customer services and placing a telephone order on 01727 853262 Monday to Saturday 9:00am - 5:30pm or by visiting their retail premises at 131-135 Victoria Street, St Albans, Herts AL1 3XS.

P.E.

All children will require a PE kit: a white round necked T-shirt, black shorts, and a pair of plimsolls/trainers. This must be kept in a PE bag clearly marked with your child’s name. This will be kept at school during the week. 

Nursery Uniform

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.


It is advisable to dress children in clothes that wash easily as spills do sometimes happen.  We provide aprons for painting, gluing, water play and cooking but when children are busy working there are occasions when they do get messy.  

Footwear/Shoe Bags

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 

Book Bags

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. 

Belongings

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.
