SCHOOL UNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT
Our school uniform gives our children a sense of belonging. It is designed to be both smart and practical. It is expected that children attending Oakwood comply with these guidelines.
Grey school trousers (not leggings), skirt or pinafore and white blouse
White polo shirt with the School logo
Bottle green jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt with School logo
Grey, white or black knee or ankle socks or grey tights (not trainer socks)
Flat black shoes
We recommend that long hair is tied back for safety reasons and to help prevent the spread of head lice.
Hair bands and ribbons etc should be green, white or black.
Children may wear short grey school trousers (not casual shorts), white polo shirt and grey socks.
Children may wear a green and white checked or striped dress, green cardigan and white knee or ankle socks.
Please exercise care when choosing summer shoes as injuries may occur in sandals with open toes or heels.
Please ensure your child has a hat or cap to wear at playtimes in particularly sunny weather. Sun lotion is best applied before school (a long lasting formulation) but may also be sent to school. (Please ensure that your child is able to apply it him/herself and that the bottle is clearly named.)

For health and safety reasons children are not allowed to wear jewellery to school. (Children may wear studs although we strongly discourage it because of the potential risk of injury to the child and others. If studs are worn, the child must be able to remove the earrings or cover them with plasters/medical tape him/herself before PE lessons.)
Children should not wear nail varnish and body transfers to school. Please keep them for weekends.
All items of uniform should be named to make it easier to return them to their owner.
Extra items, such as water bottles, PE bags, green caps and book bags are available from the School Office.
Children have access to drinking water at intervals throughout the school day, but they are encouraged to bring an additional bottle of water that they may drink throughout the day.
