Our School Uniform
At St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School we have high expectations of our students when it comes to their personal appearance, and we are pleased to say that children are very smartly dressed and wear their uniform with pride.
The purpose of our school uniform is to:
- Creates a sense of community and belonging
- Promote a sense of pride in the school
- Is practical and smart
- Makes children feel equal to their peers.
Please see below expectations for boy and girls throughout the year.
Summer: School dress in light blue check
Clothing for PE / After-school clubs
All items are available from local supermarkets and Lyons School shop, Enfield: https://www.uniform4kids.com/collections/stedmundsschool
Unusual or extreme hair styles are not acceptable. We do not allow shaved in initials, motifs or excessive hair extensions. Boy’s hair should be smart. If you are in doubt about a particular style please consult school staff before making arrangements. Long hair should be tied back with hair accessories being discreet and be white, navy or blue.
For safety reasons children should not wear jewellery. The only exceptions are stud earrings, which during PE lessons, should not be worn, so they do not present a hazard to your child or others working alongside them. If the stud earrings cannot be removed, tape must be applied before they come to school. Staff have the right to change a child’s physical activity, if earrings cannot be removed or are safe. Teachers should not remove or fit children’s earrings. Children should remove their own earrings and if children are unable to remove their own earrings then they should not wear earrings on the days that they have PE.
We have nearly 420 children at St Edmund’s, all of whom wear the same style and colour of uniform. When items are mislaid, it is a challenging task to reunite them with their owners unless they are clearly marked with a name. Please use a permanent marker or sewn in label to do this.
Please note that unclaimed items will be donated to West Lea charity shop in Edmonton Green at the end of each term.
