Uniform is considered to be a vital part of life at The Kingsway School. We ask you to ensure that your child adheres to all school uniform regulations, including the manner in which they wear their uniform.

The vast majority of students are always well turned out and a credit to their parents. The very small minority who give rise to problems, tend to do so in very specific areas. To avoid misunderstanding and to maintain our high standards of appearance, the following clarification is given.

Please also see the detailed school uniform policy on the pages following

  • Shoes: Plain black leather shoes only.
  • Jewellery: No jewellery or badges, other than those approved by the school, may be worn. Students may wear gold or silver studs, one per ear in the lower lobe. No other studs are allowed.
  • It is recommended that students do wear a watch.
  • Trousers: Must be school approved trousers – no jeans,canvas, chinos or corduroy allowed.
  • Make-up: Make-up is not permitted.
  • Outerwear: Denim, leather, camouflage jackets, coats with large or unsuitable logos or lettering and HOODIES OF ANY SORT ARE NOT ALLOWED.
  • Football Club Clothing: Coats, hats, scarves etc. which explicitly form part of the support for football teams are not to be worn.
  • Haircuts: Hair should be kept tidy with a sensible style and length. Please refer to school policy.

Would parents/guardians also note that aerosol type cans are not permitted in school. This covers deodorants and hair sprays.

Students should be provided with a suitable bag to carry their belongings. Plastic bags and handbags are not appropriate.

We hope this information will help in providing guidance in the standards we expect. If, before expensive items are bought, you have any queries about uniform, please contact either Mrs Maxey or the appropriate Pastoral Co-ordinator.
