At Christchurch Primary School we strive to achieve a strong sense of community. It is important that we all feel part of this community and we encourage all our pupils to wear school uniform. We would therefore ask that you ensure your child wears their school uniform daily.
Our uniform consists of:
- Red sweatshirt with school logo
- Black fleece jacket
- White polo shirt
- Black jogging bottoms
- Black knitted hat
- Summer cap
- Black or dark grey skirt / pinafore dress
- Black or dark grey shorts / trousers
- Summer dress – red & white check
- Headscarves – red, white or black
- P.E. bag
- Book bag – for ease of storage within classrooms we would ask that your child has a school book bag in which to bring home reading books.
You can buy uniform from the following shops:
Rupen School Uniform Shop
98-100 Meads Lane, Ilford. IG3
0208 590 3734
Lucilla School Uniform Shop,
180 Cranbrook Road, Ilford. IG1 4LX
0208 554 5133
All clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name. This makes it much easier to return a lost item to its owner.
Shoes We particularly ask that all children wear sensible flat shoes. Court shoes or high heels are strongly discouraged, both on the grounds of safety and also because they do not allow children to run and play freely. Trainers that are worn outside are not suitable for apparatus or floor work in the Hall. Shoes with Velcro fasteners are preferable for younger children. During the warmer weather, socks must be worn with open toe sandals.
In the interest of safety, jewellery should not be worn. If children have pierced ears, they should wear only studs, as other types of ear ornaments are unsafe in school. Staff will not be responsible for watches, should you allow your child to wear one.
Pupils are not allowed to wear smart watches that have phone or wifi connectivity to school.
P.E.Wear Your child will need a set of clothes to change into for PE lessons. This should consist of a white T-shirt, a pair of black shorts and pale grey jogging bottoms. These are all available from the school shop. In addition your child will need a pair of black plimsolls (the type with elasticated fronts are best for young children). These should all be kept at school in a bag with a drawstring top, all clearly labelled with your child’s name. Carrier bags are unsuitable and therefore not allowed.
We would like to inform parents that watches and jewellery may not be worn during P.E. sessions.
If, for religious reasons, your child cannot wear the recommended dress for P.E. you should provide an agreed alternative and will be asked to sign, for insurance purposes, a form stating this is your decision and responsibility.
Headscarves If your child wears a headscarf we ask that this is in keeping with our uniform policy. Please ensure that headscarfs are plain and are red, black or white in colour.
