School Uniform

School Uniform

 Please find below the uniform expectations for our school.  At Folksworth we believe that the wearing of school uniform is important for a number of reasons:-

  • It gives the children a sense of belonging to the school community;
  • It should engender pride;
  • It offers each child the chance to come to school without the pressure of competition among peers to be the best dressed or to have the latest hair fashion;
  • It is the safest and most suitable clothing for the activities of the school day;
  • It fosters the work ethic of the school.
Please ensure that all uniform is named.
 
 
Please note that children should be wearing at least one item of uniform displaying the Folksworth logo at all times.

Jewellery

The wearing of jewellery in school presents a number of difficulties in terms of health and safety, peer pressure and security. The only jewellery that may be worn are simple stud earrings in pierced ears. Please note that these will need to be removed or taped over for P.E. and games lessons. If your child is able to read the time, he/she may wear a basic watch to school – again, these will need to be removed for P.E. or games.
