Orchard Park Community Primary School

A place where children are empowered to reach their full potential, with the highest possible aspirations and passion for learning. With values and respect, our children are confident to move from our nurturing environment to explore and succeed in the wider world.

Uniform

Orchard Park has a school uniform and we expect all children to wear it. Parents can purchase school uniform via the online payment system Pay360 Education. After payment, the item of uniform will be sent home with your child. If an item is not in stock it could mean a wait of up to three weeks.

Earrings in School

Children are not allowed to participate in PE if they are wearing jewellery.  This also includes swimming.  National Guidelines state that it is no longer safe to cover earrings with tape.  The reason is because of potential tearing of the earlobe but also the very slim chance that the post of the earring could damage the neck which is where the brachial nerve is running directly to the brain.  There are anecdotal cases of children wearing earrings with plasters over them being hit with a ball and coming off worse with nasty injuries.  For these reasons we ask that, whenever possible, children are not sent to school wearing jewellery (especially on PE days)

 

Items not to be worn to school

Jeans
Hooded tops (children will be asked to remove these when inside the school building)
Sportswear such as labelled jogging bottoms, t-shirts with sports logos
Flip flops or other sandals with no back to them
Boots or shoes with high heels
 

All clothing and other personal items brought to school by children should be clearly marked with your child's name.
