Templars’ School Uniform
We want our children to know that they belong, and share a great sense of pride in belonging to Templars Primary School.
Our uniform is simple, practical and the basic uniform is available at most chain stores. Branded uniform may be purchased from Brigade Clothing (click on link below).
When the weather is bad children can walk to school in any suitable waterproof footwear (including wellies) and then change into their shoes at school.
Plain, white T shirt and black shorts and trainers. In cold weather, pupils may wear a warm, plain, dark track-suit.
Religious Hair coverings
Plain, blue or black or white
Jewellery must not be worn to school. Children who can tell the time may wear a wristwatch. Children with pierced ears may wear simple studs, but in order to comply with health and safety guidance, these will need to be removed during PE lessons.
Hair can be short, long or in between, but long hair including braids (beyond the shoulder) must be tied back for both boys and girls. Extreme hairstyles are good fun for the holidays but not in school and so we do not want to see unnatural colour or shaved designs cut into the hair. Small, plain, blue or black bands/bobbles. No over-sized bows or fashion hair accessories such as novelty head bands.
We maintain a supply of good condition nearly-new school uniform. Please contact the school office and look out for regular sales - details are sent out on the school newsletter.
We are sometimes able to support families who are experiencing financial hardship with the supply of school uniform and with the purchase of school shoes using the Boot Fund. In this situation parents/carers need to speak to the school office in confidence and we will do all we can to help.
Staff are also expected to dress in a professional and appropriate manner and guidelines for the staff dress code is given to all staff annually.
Sensory Needs - Uniform help.
Thank you to a very kind parent who has sourced this info. Some children find labels and seams very uncomfortable. The following stockists are recommended:
Peacocks: Boys and girls pants, vests and socks
Pep & Co: School polo shirts are label free. School trousers are soft labels.
H&M have non-itchy labels
Marks and Spencers offer an Autistic Hour if you call in advance and will lower music and dim lights (as do many supermarkets if you call in advance).
M&S provide: reinforced knees on trousers, Velcro waist (no buttons), up to Age 16, seam-free clothing and label free clothing.
