Uniform

It is our belief that school uniform is an important aspect of the School’s ethos as it gives the children a sense of identity and a sense of belonging.

We aim for the highest standards in all aspects of school life.  I am sure you will agree that wearing the correct uniform gives clear and important messages to both the children and the local community regarding how we value our school.

Castilion logo uniform can be ordered from the company MAPAC.

Jewellery, wristwatches, make-up and hair:

Nursery and Reception:

No earrings or wristwatches of any type are permitted in the Nursery and Reception classes. 

Year 1-6:

Jewellery: It is dangerous to wear when taking part in any physical activity. For this reason children must not wear jewellery to school (the only exception is simple, small non-jewelled ear studs). Bexley Council recommendations, teachers cannot be responsible for helping children remove items of jewellery e.g. earrings or for looking after them. Children who cannot remove their own ear studs mustn't wear them on a day they have indoor or outdoor PE.

Wristwatches: should be small, plain and dark in colour.  Large, colourful wrist watches are not permitted.  

Haircuts: Only sensible haircuts are permissible. Skin-head, Mohican, motif haircuts, dyed hair and coloured extensions are not permitted. Children may wear plain beads but these must be tied back. Hair accessories should only be worn in order to keep hair tied back, they should be discreet and plain coloured (black/white/green).

Nail varnish and make-up MUST NOT be worn.   

Swimming

Please bring the following items:

  • Swimming costume or trunks (Bermuda shorts and bikinis are not allowed)
  • Towel
  • A cap will be provided
  • DO NOT bring any kind of body cream or lotion to apply after swimming

School Book Bags & Pencil cases

  • A book bag (in which reading books, homework and letters can be kept) is to be brought to school and taken home every day. 
  • All books and equipment must be kept in the book bag.
  • Backpacks/haversacks are not permitted for all children, all equipment should be kept in the book bag. 
  • Children should not bring pencil cases into school. 

Protective clothing

Each child will need an old shirt or similar, for use during art/craftwork.

This can be stored in the classroom and taken home regularly for washing.

Hijab

Children whose religion requires them to wear a hijab can wear these in white, black or bottle green only.

It is essential that you clearly mark each item of clothing with your child’s name so that misplaced items can be returned to the correct child.  Obviously with so many children wearing similar clothing it is impossible to trace unnamed items.

Stamptastic offer personalised stamps with your child's name that can be used on most materials (an alternative to sewing/ironing name tags yourself). If you place an order with Stamptastic, quote our school code - SE288QA - this will help raise extra funds for the school at no extra cost to you.
