How to order school uniform from Cross Embroidery during the Covid 19 outbreak.

The school is proud of its uniform and all of our children wear the school colours. We firmly believe that smart uniform and appearance are very important.  They provide our pupils with an identity, and signal a belonging and commitment to our school community.  They also reflect the high standards and expectations that we set throughout the school.  We therefore insist that all pupils wear the correct and complete uniform to school, details of which can be found below.

Please ensure your child arrives ready for their school day correctly dressed in the correct uniform and that it is clean and in good repair.

Children need to wear the academy blazer, a navy jumper/cardigan (which can be plain or with the Harriers logo), grey skirt, shorts or trousers, white shirt and a school tie in years 1 to 6, white polo shirt and no tie in Early Years.

Children should be dressed appropriately for the weather. When it is cold, please ensure that your child also has a warm, outdoor coat for wearing to and from school and for outside play during the day.

Whilst we want children to be able to choose their hairstyle we ask that it is not too extreme: no uneven/patterned shaving, natural colours, simple and plain hair bands or bobbles.
All hair past the shoulder (girl’s or boy’s) must be tied up with a simple hair band or bobble.  If a child does not have one, then one will be provided.

It is at the Principal’s discretion that any hairstyle or item of clothing may be banned if deemed to be in breach of the uniform policy. 

Uniform and book bags can be purchased from Cross Embroidery; see their website for details on how to order and store location: Cross Embroidery

Watches and stud earrings (only one stud per ear) are the only jewellery permitted in school. These must be removed for PE and swimming. Children are responsible for looking after their own items and must be able to remove watches and earrings themselves.

Please ensure all of your child’s belongings are clearly labelled.
