School Uniform

Uniform / Dress Code at Golden Valley

 

The colours of the school’s dress code are yellow, grey and white. The following lists should guide your purchase of items of school dress to encourage uniformity and a true sense of collectiveness amongst the children. Uniform items with embroidered logos are available from School Togs in Nailsea Town Centre; other plain items are available from most high street retailers and stores.

 

BOYS

Grey or yellow sweatshirt with embroidered school logo

White shirt/polo shirt (embroidered polo shirts available)

Grey trousers or shorts 

Grey socks 

Dark coloured shoes

 

GIRLS

Grey or yellow sweatshirt or cardigan with embroidered school logo

White polo shirt/blouse (embroidered polo shirts available)

Grey pinafore, skirt or trousers (appropriate for school – not fashion items)

Grey or white socks or tights

Dark coloured shoes (school style – no fashion heels please)

In Summer months, a yellow/white checked or striped Summer dress can be worn as an alternative to the above. No leggings should be worn as part of regular school uniform, including Summer dresses.

 

Trainers should not be worn as everyday shoes for any child unless it is a PE day (see below).

 

Grey fleece jackets with the school logo are available to buy

 

Hair and Make-Up

Hair dying/colouring is not appropriate for school (unless there is a special reason such as a school charity event). Similarly, extreme haircuts, excessive use of hair products or motifs shaved into hair are to be avoided during school terms.

Hair bands and accessories should be plain and simple and not overly decorative.

Make-up, including nail polish, is not appropriate to be worn by pupils to school.

 

PE Clothing - Updated for September 2020

From September 2020, on days that your child has PE, they must wear the new regulation PE kit to school. This is to minimise any risk when changing and to maximise the time available for PE lessons.

 

There is still a requirement to have a plain T shirt in your child's House colour and plain black shorts, but in addition, grey tracksuit bottoms and a grey sweatshirt should also be worn. These should also be plain and without any logos. There are many high street or online retailers that sell these items at reasonable costs and we hope you will support us with this change.

 

On PE days only, your child should wear trainers to school.

 

(For girls in Years 5 and 6 only, plain grey leggings can be worn in place of grey jogging bottoms.)

 

Swimming

All Year 4 children will take part in week-long block swimming lessons at two points in the year. Girls should wear one-piece swimming costumes (no bikinis) and boys should wear swimming trunks, not loose-fitting shorts. A swimming cap is required; these can be purchased from the Year 4 teachers for 55p.

 

Jewellery

The only jewellery permitted in school are stud earrings and a watch. Earrings (small studs only) need to be removed for all PE activities after they have been pierced for 6 weeks or more. Where a child has newly pierced ears, tape or plasters must be provided from home for covering to take place.

 

All long hair (boys and girls) needs to be tied back for every PE session.

 

PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL SCHOOL CLOTHING IS CLEARLY NAMED!
