School uniform should be worn at all times except for special events or activities where parents will be informed in advance.
For pupils new to the school, a reasonable period of adjustment will be allowed to enable correct uniform to be purchased (for example, uniform from a previous school which isn’t quite in line with ours will be permitted until parents are able to purchase Ringshall uniform)
All items of uniform should be marked with children’s names to ensure they can be returned to the correct owners if they are misplaced.
Our school uniform consists of:
Jewellery, temporary tattoos and nail varnish should not be worn in school at all, with the exception of a single stud earring in each ear. Children must be able to remove their own earrings for PE otherwise they should not wear earrings to school.
Long hair must be tied back with plain hair accessories- hair being tied back helps reduce the risk of head lice.
You can order our uniform online from: www.tesco.com/direct/ringshall-primary-school/8072.school
or by visiting: PGM Schoolwear in Ipswich (01473 212050) who hold stock of our uniform.
Parents may also purchase uniform in the school colours from major chain stores. School badges that can be sewn onto sweatshirts can be purchased from the office priced £2.00.
We require all children to wear school uniform. Hooded tops are not acceptable for indoor wear.
For indoor P.E.
For outdoor P.E.
PE kit should be brought to school on Monday and kept at school until Friday and kept in a named PE bag.
No watches or jewellery may be worn during PE activities for safety reasons. Earrings (studs only) may only be worn in school, only if a child can take them out and replace them without assistance. No tape is permitted to cover earrings for PE; they must be removed. Staff cannot assist with the removal of earrings. Children will not be permitted to participate in PE if they are wearing earrings.
We strongly advise parents do not have their child’s ears pierced in term time as, for health and safety reasons, this will mean they would be unable to access many PE activities. We therefore ask that ear piercing is carried out at the beginning of the summer break, which allows enough time for the ears to heal before returning to school.
