We believe that school uniform encourages a pride in our school and a sense of unity. The uniform consists of grey trousers or skirt, white polo shirt and navy pullover or cardigan or sweatshirt and white socks. The summer uniform for girls is gingham dress in blue; the boys may wear grey shorts in the summer.
Trainers must not be worn in school but retained for outdoor P.E. activities.
Black shoes with low heels should be worn in school. High heels are not acceptable for reasons of safety.
Shorts, tracksuits, t-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts can be bought from school at a price of: -
Sweatshirt £10.00 Cardigans £10.00
Polo shirt (with Westlea emblem) £7.00
Book bags can also be purchased for £5.00
This is not to be worn in school for reasons of safety. If, however, parents have objections to removing earrings from pierced ears then a letter should be sent in to school explaining this.
P.E. kit is as follows:
i) Gym work: - Navy plain shorts with white T-shirts or leotards for girls, black or white pumps, (elasticated pumps are easier). Trainers/pumps must not be worn on gym equipment, as this is not considered safe.
ii) Outdoor games: - As above in general although tracksuits may be worn in colder weather.
iii) Football: - Football boots must be worn as damage can be done to the feet in trainers. Tracksuits can be worn for training. Shinpads are also needed.
iv) Netball/ hockey/tag rugby: - As for gym although trainers and tracksuits can be worn.
A pump bag with a drawstring is suitable for keeping all P.E. clothes in.
All clothing should be clearly labelled clearly with your child's name.
