Primary

Primary School Uniform - Term 4

All parents and students are reminded that students are permitted to wear Summer Uniform from the beginning of next term. There is a two week changeover period where students may wear either summer or winter uniform, but all students are required to be in summer uniform from Monday 17 October. 

Please ensure you are familiar with the following requirements for Term 4 uniform: 
School hats are compulsory for all outdoor activities for students in ELC-6 from Monday October 3….the first day of Term 4  
Blazers are not required with summer uniform BUT when travelling to and from school, the blazer should be worn as the outermost garment if required, not the school jumper.  

During the two week changeover period from winter to summer uniform, students must wear either full winter or full summer, not a combination of both. 
Please supply suitable sunscreen for your child and teach him/her how to apply it. 
As an Independent School we take pride in the way our students are dressed and we ask all parents to support us in this, especially in the Primary years when children have little or no say over their uniform. If parents make the effort to get the uniform correct, the children will follow this example when they are older. 

Yours Sincerely, 
Luke Barnewall 
Acting Head of Primary
