We believe that children should take pride in their appearance as well as in the work that they produce whilst at school. We therefore have high expectations in terms of the uniform the children wear and their general appearance. We also anticipate a high level of cooperation from parents and carers whilst enforcing this policy.
The Oakhurst uniform consists of:
White polo (with or without the school logo)
Purple sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece with the school logo
Black shorts or trousers
Black skirt, trousers or pinafore (no leggings or skinny jeans – all tights should be black or white)
Purple summer dress
Black shoes (low heels for girls) – no trainers
PE kits should be kept in school throughout the school week and consist of:
Black shorts/skirt/tracksuit bottoms
All earrings must be covered up and hair tied back.
Please note, all teachers will have a supply of tape and hair bands for children to access before P.E. lessons.
Please inform us if you have any queries about this.
Please do not send children to school wearing jewellery. Only small studs are acceptable and they must be removed before P.E.
In the interests of safety hair longer than shoulder length will need tying back for P.E. It is a good idea to keep long hair tied back generally when in school, as pupils often perform practical tasks during lessons. The school expects all children to have tidy hair, the style of which should not impede their learning. Extreme hairstyles such as tram lines, mohicans and excessive use of hair gel will not be permitted.
Children should not wear nail varnish or temporary tattoos to school.
Uniform is available from Dress My School and Famous School Brands
Dress My School have issued the following information:
For the time being, we will only have one customer inside our premises at a time. It may take us a little longer than usual to answer the door whilst our staff put on clean disposable gloves and a face shield. We will ask you to use the hand sanitizer provided when you arrive. No fitting service will be available, parents and carers will be required to purchase the garment size(s) they believe they need, and if too big or too small once fitted at home, we will exchange the item(s) when returned, as per the policy published on our website. Returned items will be quarantined for two days before going back into stock. Once the customer has left, we will sanitize all exposed surfaces so that they are safe for the next customer visit.
We are extremely conscious of the extra expense that this incurs. We only charge the price that we pay our courier to deliver a small order, and often subsidise the full delivery price on larger orders. To help where we can, we continue to offer free home delivery when name tags or shoe labels are included with the order.
