Wearing school uniform is part of the ethos of the school and there is an expectation that all children will come to school appropriately dressed and wearing uniform. It helps us to feel like we belong!
Items with an embroidered school logo are available from Border Embroideries Items without the school logo, in matching colours are widely available and are acceptable alternatives. School do hold some previously loved uniform and the Friends of Dean hold regular sales of previously loved uniform for small donations.
Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times. The uniform is for all pupils from Nursery to Year 6.
The following items make up our uniform:
- Sweatshirt or school fleece
- Pale blue or white polo shirts (with or without school logo).
- Dark trousers or knee length skirts
- Blue, grey or black tights to wear with skirts or shorts in colder weather
- Dark appropriate footwear (no trainers)
In summer term only:
- Blue gingham checked dresses, or dark knee length shorts in warmer weather
The PE uniform is as follows:
- Blue t-shirt (with or without school logo)
- Black or blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms in colder weather
- A pair of indoor pumps/trainers with non-marking soles, and a pair of pumps / trainers they can wear outside.
Pupils’ hair should be neatly groomed and tidy at all times. Long hair on both girls and boys should be tied back neatly. Small hair bows or headbands are permitted although may need to be removed for PE
Children are not permitted to wear any jewellery to school apart from a watch. If children have their ears pierced they should wear small studs. For sports and PE all piercings should be removed or covered (both over the front and back of the ear), and hair should be tied back. The school will not provide coverings for piercings. Pupils may wear a watch (with no sound effects, cameras or games) but they must be removed for P.E., swimming or other sporting activities undertaken with school (on or off site). Pupils unable to participate in PE activities due to being unable to remove or cover jewellery will participate in the theoretical side of the session but will not participate in the active part of the session.
Please ensure all uniform is labelled.
The Local Governing Body hope that these guidelines will be supported by all parents and that having a school uniform will make it easier for parents since the children will know what they are expected to wear each day.
Children should have their P.E. kit in school every day, including a pair of indoor pumps/trainers with non-marking soles, and a pair of pumps / trainers they can wear outside. Children with long hair should wear it tied back.
