Appropriate Footwear in School

We would like to remind all parents and carers of our uniform policy regarding appropriate footwear for school.

As stated in our parent handbook:

Shoes must be worn at all times, except in specified classes. NO TRAINERS OR BOOTS are allowed.

Shoes should be 'Closed-toed, hard-soled, all black plain shoes with a flat sole'

Black trainers or black plimsolls should be provided for PE and may be changed into at lunchtimes.

There appears to be come confusion about what constitutes a shoe or trainer. Generally, branded footwear such as Nike or Adidas, is sportswear and therefore considered to be a trainer and not a school shoe.

We hope this information will help and we thankyou for your support in this.
