SCHOOL UNIFORM

2.1 Introduction

School uniform is closely related to school discipline. A smartly dressed pupil, wearing the correct uniform, comes to school in a positive frame of mind, ready to work. Pride in oneself, and in the school, is an essential element in giving the pupil a positive self-image. These concepts are important for the pupil to be happy at school, to feel a sense of belonging. It is for these reasons that we recommend to parents that the pupil be dressed in the correct items of school uniform. Pupils must be fully dressed when leaving school i.e. shoes and socks on, shirts tucked in and ties worn with long pants/tunics.

NB All items must be clearly marked. Printed name tapes are inexpensive and are available from the stockists.

Red, grey and white

2.4 Girls' Uniform

3.2 Boys:

School regulation grey shorts, red collared shirt with school badge, white takkies (No black or brown takkies), only white, ankle length socks are permitted. No secret socks to be worn. Plain black Speedo swimming costume and a red swimming cap. School sports tracksuit.

3.3 Sports Tracksuit:

The school sports tracksuit is an essential item for all pupils who are representing our school in a sporting activity. The tracksuit may be worn to school on Physical Education days.

3.4 Sports Uniform:

Each particular sport has dress regulations appropriate for the activity. It is imperative for our children to look their best at all times. Half the battle is won when a sports team arrives correctly kitted out, looks smart and portrays a team which shows unity, is motivated and ready for any challenge.
Uniformity Is Our Standard.

CLOTHING SHOP

Parents are encouraged to donate items of school clothing in good condition to the school clothing shop. These items are sold at a very reasonable price and the proceeds go towards school funds.

SCHOOL BAGS

Only the official black Rynfield Primary School bags are permitted. The pupil's name should be clearly printed on the inside of the bag. Bags may be purchased from Rynfield Drapers. No colourful or brand name bags are permitted. No caddies are permitted as they do not fit in the classrooms nor through the turnstiles

MANNERS

A high standard of behaviour is expected of pupils at all times. Respect should be shown, for example, in the following ways:

  1. Greet all members of staff and be respectful towards all staff members.
  2. Greet and display a helpful attitude to visitors to the school.
