School Uniform

At Whitegate End we believe that a school uniform encourages self-respect and belonging and supports the ethos of the school. We expect all children to wear our school uniform.

  • Royal Blue sweater / jumper or cardigan
  • White shirt, blouse or polo shirt,
  • Grey skirt or pinafore dress.
  • In summer a blue and white check dress maybe worn.
  • Grey, white or black socks
  • Black sensible shoes (or boots in inclement weather)

 

  • Royal Blue sweater / jumper
  • White shirt or polo shirt
  • Grey trousers, long or short.
  • Grey, white or black socks
  • Black sensible shoes (or boots in inclement weather)

 

For nursery children:-

  • Royal Blue sweater/jumper
  • White polo shirt
  • Black track suit bottoms
  • Grey, white or black socks
  • Black shoes with velcro fastenings

 

All of the above items, except those displaying the school badge, can be purchased in the major chain stores. The items displaying the school badge, namely the polo shirt, sweater, jumper and cardigan, are available from a range of providers.

 

To avoid lost clothing, it is essential with so many identical items of clothing that parents label every item of their child’s clothing and shoes.

 

Trainers may be brought to change into for lunchtime playtime.

 

Children should have a coat suitable for the weather conditions.

 

Long hair (on or below the shoulders) must be tied back. Shaven heads and those with shapes cut in and tram lines should not be worn( as a general rule barbers should not use anything less than a number 3).  It is impossible to predict trends in hair styles but parents should avoid the temptation to try the latest styles or hair colours which can end up being a distraction in school and lead to inappropriate behaviour.

 

 

For safety reasons children are not allowed to wear jewellery, including earrings and studs. Pupils (or parents), will be asked to remove any jewellery items that are worn to school. Parents are asked to wait until the start of the summer holidays to have ears pierced so that the ears can heal before the pupils return to school. 

 

Children may wear a sensible wrist watch. 

 
Always Badges are an important part of the School Ethos and should be worn at all times once awarded.


All of the above items, except those displaying the school badge, can be purchased in the major chain stores. The items displaying the school badge, namely the polo shirt, sweater, jumper and cardigan, are only available from Top Form on King Street, Oldham, or from the Education Shop for those parents who can claim clothing grant.
