School Uniform Policy
Children are required to wear the school uniform at Richard Hill; conforming to it overcomes the need to worry about a child’s everyday wardrobe. It also gives the school an identity of which the children can be proud. It should be worn as intended: to look smart and to be safe - trousers with flaps and loose decorations should not be worn, for example.
Boys: Royal blue sweatshirt or fleece
White polo shirt
Grey long or short trousers
Girls: Royal blue cardigan or sweatshirt or fleece
White blouse or polo shirt
Grey skirt or grey trousers or pinafore dress
A blue checked dress may be worn in the summer term
Shoes: Black school shoes. Socks to be worn at all times (except in PE)
(no open-toed sandals)
Hot Weather: Sun hats are encouraged.
Indoors: White t-shirt, royal blue shorts, white socks
Plimsolls for indoor activities
Please note: Children undertaking apparatus work will be required to do so in bare feet.
Outdoors: Tracksuit or dark, plain joggers and sweatshirt for cold weather
Footwear – trainers (no football boots)
The Wearing of Jewellery
Children are not to wear jewellery for school as it can present a danger to themselves and others. If earrings must be worn they should only be studs, and must be removable by the children themselves for PE and swimming. This is a health and safety requirement.
Hair, which is long enough, must be tied back off the face at all times for safety as well as good hygiene.
