School Uniform

The smart appearance of our children is a reflection of the high standards we expect in all areas at St John’s Infants. We therefore expect all children to wear correct school uniform.

Grey trousers, Grey skirt or pinafore; Navy blue sweatshirt/sweat-cardi with the school crest; White polo shirt, plain or with the school crest; White/Grey/ Navy Blue socks/tights; Black shoes.

All clothing must be clearly marked with your child’s name.

The official school polo shirts, sweatshirts and sweatcardis are available from Urban Design, Rock Ferry or The Wirral Uniform Shop, Birkenhead Precinct.

Sensible flat shoes are essential for health and safety reasons. Trainers and boots are not permitted as we wish to maintain a smart appearance. Coloured, stripy or patterned sock/tights are also not permitted.

Children are expected to wear hair in a neat and acceptable style. Hairstyles judged by the Headteacher to be extreme haircuts, such as shaven or part-shaven heads, including patterns and mohicans are not permitted as they are deemed inappropriate for young school children. Large colourful hairbows are not allowed to be worn in school. Hair bows/embellishments must be small and in the school colours of blue and white.

Summer Uniform

In the summer term (after Easter), parents may choose to adopt the summer uniform, particularly if it becomes very warm.

Blue checked or striped school summer dresses or grey shorts with white polo shirt, plain or with school crest with sweatshirt/sweat cardi; Navy blue tank tops with the school logo may also be worn instead of a sweat shirt/cardigan if you prefer; Closed-toe sandals - Please note that open-toe sandals are not permitted for health and safety reasons.

PE Kit

Your child will need a drawstring bag, clearly marked with their name, in which to store their PE kit. This kit consists of plain navy blue shorts, plain white t-shirt and a pair of black school pumps with an elastic gusset or Velcro fastening.

Jewellery

Following the advice of the Local Authority Health and Safety Guidelines, the wearing of jewellery by any child in school is not permitted. This includes earrings, watches, necklaces and rings. As well as the risk of accidental injury from wearing jewellery in school, we cannot take responsibility for loss or damage to items of jewellery.
