School Uniform

We firmly believe that our uniform promotes a sense of pride in The Vineyard School and gives the school a strong and positive identity in the local community. School uniform is compulsory.

EARLY YEARS

All Early Years children must have a plain navy or black jacket;   a pair of plain navy or black waterproof trousers and a pair of wellington boots to be kept in school.

School UniformOutdoor Clothes
Our weather often changes throughout the course of the school day and unfortunately summer cannot be relied upon for warm and sunny weather. Please ensure that your child brings a coat and at least a sweatshirt during summer months. Children can be very unhappy if they are cold during break times.
School Bags
Reception, Y1, Y2 and Y3
Children in these year groups should bring a book bag, and a drawstring P.E. bag. Please note that the backpacks are not permitted in these Year groups as they do not fit into the cloakroom cubbyholes.
Years 4, 5 and 6
The older children have lockers so backpacks are suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. These children will also need a drawstring P.E. bag.
All these bags are available online from Mapac with the school logo. Bags of a similar size or smaller (plain/dark colours preferred), are also permitted.
Jewellery
In the interests of your child’s safety, please ensure that jewellery is not worn in school other than for religious reasons. Young children are physically active in school and accidents can result from earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets and braids being caught or pulled. Children may wear wristwatches providing that they take personal responsibility for them.
Earrings must be small studs in the ear lobe only.
 
P.E. Kit and Arrangements
 

 PE Uniform
 

 
  • Plain navy shorts
  • The colour T-shirt appropriate to their house team
  • Sweatshirt appropriate to their house team (winter only)
  • Navy track suit trousers (winter only)
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Drawstring bag
  • Change of socks
 
All children must have a complete set of PE kit in school in a named PE bag. If a child does not have their PE kit at school, they will not be able to take part in PE and a reminder will be sent home.
The children must have a letter from their parent/carer if they can not participate in a PE lesson because of an injury.
Children should never do PE indoors in stockinged feet because of the danger of slipping. In gym and dance lessons, barefoot work is preferable.
Children should not wear jewellery, unless for religious reasons (and then it should be taped). If stud earrings are worn, they must be removed before PE, or covered with a plaster which should be included with their PE kit.
Children with long hair should have their hair tied up.
Labelling
It is essential that all items of school clothing, including trainers, are clearly labelled with your child’s name. This helps your child look after their belongings and prevents them from becoming upset over lost items. Remember that all school sweatshirts look the same!
