We believe that a school uniform is important as:
- It looks smart.
- Wears well.
- Contributes to a sense of belonging and community.
- Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
- Fosters a feel of pride.
- Is designed with health and safety in mind.
We ask that all children wear the uniform and encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school. The uniform is designed to be practical, maintainable and good value for money.
Hair accessories such as slides, ribbons, bobbles, etc, should be fairly simple and if possible in school colours.
For safely reasons, we ask that all children do not wear jewellery into school.
At East SILC, we would like our pupils to wear the following clothing and apparel:
- White polo shirt
- Navy jumper/ sweatshirt
- Dark coloured trousers/ sweatpants
- Dark coloured footwear
- White or blue t-shirt
- Dark shorts/ dark sweatpants
- Trainers with light coloured soles
- Dark sweatshirt/ zip tracksuit top in colder weather.
For health reasons, it is important that children and young people are properly dressed for physical activity. PE kit should be kept in a clearly labelled drawstring bag.
We know that some children and young people may struggle to wear some of these items of clothing so we understand if your child may need to wear alternate items of clothing or footwear depending on individual needs and circumstances.
Please can you ensure that all of your child’s belongings are clearly labelled so that any mislaid or lost items can be returned home as soon as possible.
If you wish to order any school uniform, please complete the form from School Trends here – Please enter the postcode of the site your child goes to. It is not compulsory to purchase the uniform from School Trends as the generic apparel needed for uniform can be purchased from various outlets.
