School uniform plays a vital role in promoting the ethos of a school, providing a sense of belonging and identity and setting an appropriate tone for education. By creating a common identity amongst all pupils, regardless of background, a school uniform can also act as a social leveller.
The “Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Act 2021” states that all stipulated school uniform items must be affordable for all and any branded items, purchased through uniform suppliers, offer value for money. This statutory guidance came into effect in September 2022.
The Aspire Uniform Policy, formed in part by parent/pupil voice, ensures each individual uniform offering across the trust is in line with this legislation and helps maintain the balance between affordability and upholding of school ethos and identity.
Our school colours are yellow and black.
The children wear yellow school sweatshirts (school logo optional), black trousers/skirts and white polo shirts with plain white, black or grey socks / tights and black coloured shoes (not boots) with a flat heel.
Our yellow school jumpers are available to purchase locally from Cornwall Screenprint at the link below:
All other uniform items can be sourced locally
During PE, a plain black jumper (without any logos) will be allowed as an alternative for wearing their school jumper. However, if the black jumper has logos on it, children will be asked to change into their school jumper.
All hair is to be kept tied back with no dyes or colours added and Grade 2 as the shortest cut length.
Jewellery allowed is a watch and one single pair of small, plain earrings.
Uniform Stop & Swap Shop
From Thursday 6th October we shall be running a Uniform Stop & Swap Shop at school, from 8:15am - 9am each week. The 'Swap Shop' will be held in school, please head around towards the nursery entrance where you will see the sign for the swap shop.
We have a selection of used school uniform which is available in all sizes to Sandy Hill families who are trying to source uniform. The items are available free of charge.
As it is a 'Swap Shop' we will happily take in any of your unwanted CLEAN uniform to add to the store for other families to make use of.
