School Uniform

 We want each pupil to have a pride in Chester Park Junior School, in being a member of it and in his or her own appearance.

 Chester Park Junior School has a school uniform based around our chosen colours of scarlet and grey. We expect pupils to come to school dressed appropriately for working.

 We expect pupils to wear the following:

                   Boys – grey or black trousers and a red or grey top.

Girls – grey or black skirt or trousers and red or grey jumpers or cardigans.

 Sweatshirts and cardigans with logos are sold by the Friends of Chester Park Junior School, but clothing of appropriate colours are available at many outlets.

  Extremes of fashion are not allowed, neither are jeans, long skirts or patterned ‘T’ shirts. Footwear should be sensible, allowing the child to move safely around the school. Shoes with high heels and shoes without backs are not appropriate. “Heelies” and other forms of wheeled footwear are not permitted at any time.

 We ask that all clothing be clearly labelled with the child’s name as we generate large amounts of ‘lost property’ that we would prefer to return to rightful owners as we have nowhere to store it.

 The school dress code allows for diversity in the context of race and culture. If there are any questions about this please feel free to contact the school.

School Sweatshirts, fleeces, cardigans,PE t shirts and book bags may be bought from the Friends. Call in to the school office or download a form below. We prefer payment if possible using the online school gateway system if this is not possible however we do accept cash or cheques made payable to "The Friends Of Chester Park Junior School"

P.E. Kit

 

As we are trying to help pupils to develop a healthy attitude to life, we expect all pupils to change when taking part in physical activities.

 Suitable clothing for P.E. includes:

                             Shorts and ‘T’ shirt

                             Track suit bottoms

 As a rule, gymnastic activities in the school hall will be done in bare feet. When games activities are carried out in the playground or on the field, suitable daps or trainers need to be worn.

All P.E. equipment needs to be properly labelled and stored in a suitable bag in school. School Homework Diaries will detail the precise days that each pupil needs to bring kit in for.

 Jewellery

 The wearing of jewellery is not permitted on grounds of Health and Safety. Where families wish for the school to consider allowing a pupil to be able to wear jewellery for religious reasons, this must be agreed with the Headteacher beforehand. In all instances there will be an expectation for the jewellery to be removed for physical activities. If pupils have pierced ears we ask, for safety reasons that these be of a stud type. It is important from a health and safety point of view that these be removed for P.E. activities. Whilst we appreciate there is a period soon after piercing when the studs cannot be removed, we ask parent / carers to show pupils how to do this as soon as possible. Studs can be a health and safety issue in outdoor activities.

 Jewellery, including watches, removed for physical activities are to be handed to the class teacher for safekeeping and will be placed in a lockable box for the duration of the lesson. The school will accept no responsibility for the jewellery.

 Mobile Phones

Whilst the school acknowledges a parent’s right to send a pupil to school with a mobile phone, the school discourages this and will accept no responsibility for lost phones. Where it is unavoidable and a phone has to be brought to school, it should be handed to the school teacher on arrival, having been switched off. It can then be reclaimed on leaving school at the end of the day.
