Stocksbridge Junior School believes that a consistent school uniform policy is vital to promote the ethos of the school and provide a sense of belonging and identity for all pupils, regardless of their protected characteristics or socio-economic circumstances.

This policy lays out the measures the school has taken to ensure a consistent, fair and inclusive uniform policy, and to implement a uniform that reflects the needs of all pupils, and is affordable and the best value for money for the school and pupils’ families.

School uniform is as follows:

  • A navy blue sweatshirt, cardigan or hoody embroidered with the school logo.
  • A white or navy blue polo shirt. Embroidered with the school logo preferred but a plain, unbranded polo shirt is permitted.
  • Plain grey, navy or black trousers/shorts/skirt.
  • Dark sensible footwear, this may include trainers but not high heeled shoes.
  • Children are required to change into indoor footwear (pumps or plain slippers) before entering the classroom.
  • Jeans/Denim clothing (including skirts and shorts) are not allowed.
  • Tights must be plain black, navy blue or grey.

It is our uniform policy that our pupils take pride in their appearance, which includes wearing t-shirts tucked in. Children are not permitted to wear make-up or any jewellery other than a small pair or stud earrings and a watch if they wish.

PE Kit

It is also important that children have suitable PE kit for health, safety and personal hygiene reasons. Children are asked to wear their PE Kit to school only for their specified PE day(s) each week.

  • A PE t-shirt representing their House colour embroidered with the school logo:
    • Wharncliffe (Red)
    • Ewden (Blue)
    • Hunshelf (Green)
    • Broomhead (Yellow)
    • Alternatively, an unbranded white t-shirt is permitted
  • Plain navy or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms.
  • A navy blue PE hoody embroidered with the school logo*. (Alternatively, children may wear their normal school sweatshirt).
  • Trainers.

*Logo Leisurewear can embroider a hoody with your child’s initials for an additional cost. School has requested that Logo Leisurewear only embroider initials and not full names to safeguard the identity of our pupils when wearing their hoodies outside of school.

Pupils’ Belongings

Parents are requested not to allow their children to being valuables to school. Insurance cover is not provided against loss, damage or theft of personal property of pupils and therefore, we cannot take responsibility for any such items. Children often have to being money to school, for example, money for snack stall or or for fundraising events etc. Parents are asked to ensure that the child has a secure place in which to keep such money.

Lost Property

All clothing and personal possessions belonging to your child must be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

When it is not possible to return clothing or personal possessions to the rightful owner, items are placed in lost property. We regularly attempt to reunite lost property with the owner. Items which remain unclaimed will be passed on to charitable causes towards the end of each half term.
