Uniform

The Governors at Deanwood believe that maintaining a high standard of appearance through the wearing of uniform is a crucial element of our school. Uniform gives children pride in the school, puts them in the right frame of mind for work and makes them feel part of our community.

The school does not have uniform for sale but elements of our uniform which incorporate the school emblem are available to purchase. The school only holds a sample of stock for sizing purposes. Alternatively, uniform can be purchased at any clothing shop or online here.

Uniform

Our uniform consists of:

  • A navy blue sweatshirt,  fleece, reversible waterproof fleece or cardigan – with or without school logo
  • Pale blue polo T-Shirts with or without logo 
  • Pale blue school shirt

For Girls:

  • Navy blue or grey skirt, trousers and pinafore dresses
  • Pale blue or navy blue school summer check dresses
  • White socks, or tights in navy blue or grey

For Boys:

  • Grey or black trousers, or long school shorts in the summer

 

 

PE Uniform

Children will require an appropriate PE kit for PE and games activities. On days their class does PE, children will come to school in their PE kit. Your child’s class teacher will ensure that parents and children are aware of their PE days so that you can plan accordingly. In order to ensure that high standards of school uniform continue to be maintained, it is important that children wear the correct PE kit as follows: 

  • Plimsoles will be worn for inside games or bare feet. Trainers can be worn for outdoor PE.
  • White round neck plain T-shirt
  • Navy blue or black PE shorts
  • Navy blue or black plain tracksuit bottoms are permitted in the winter

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears or small objects of religious significance. Earrings must be removed for PE and games therefore please do not get your child’s ears pierced during term time. We will ask the children or parents to remove these objects during PE and games.

Footwear

We require all children to wear black school shoes, no trainers, no heels, no boots. Flashing lights on shoes are not acceptable as they can be distracting.

Hair Styles

Children’s hairstyles should be smart and appropriate for school. For the safety and welfare of the children, long hair should be tied back with a plain hairband.

School Meals

Children at Deanwood have the following lunchtime options:

School Meals
