Humberstone Junior Academy
Required School Uniform can be purchased from the Office
Dear Parents & Carers,
I am writing to say how pleased I am that the vast majority of children have arrived at school dressed smartly in the correct uniform and ready to learn. Thank you for your support with this; it is a very positive way to start the term. Wearing the correct uniform really does contribute to school ethos and helps children to feel part of the Humberstone Team.
As a reminder to parents: The school uniform policy states that all children MUST wear:
RED ‘Humberstone Junior Academy’ sweatshirts or cardigans with our logo ( NO OTHER RED TOPS OF ANY DESCRIPTION ARE PERMITTED)
GREY trousers or skirt / pinafore dress (Not black)
Plain White polo shirt ( with OR without school logo) or plain white shirt/blouse
Black / Brown or Navy school shoes /no trainers/heels/white soles/logos or flip flops
PE Kit : black or red shorts / white t-shirt / plimsolls
I must also remind you of the school policy regarding makeup and hair:
‘Children are not permitted to wear make up to school at this age. Children’s hair must be neat and tidy. It is advisable for children with longer hair to tie it back for school for health and safety reasons. Extreme haircuts, shaved hair designs, Mohicans, dyed colours etc. are not appropriate for school and ARE NOT PERMITTED’.
The school uniform policy was agreed two years ago after consultation with parents and school governors. Parents and governors overwhelmingly voted for a compulsory policy and the school has a duty to ensure that all children are dressed accordingly. The policy has been available on the school website since it was agreed and a reminder letter stating the policy clearly was sent home last year also.
It has been noted that there is an increase in the number of children who have arrived for school wearing trainers this year. Whilst the trainers children are wearing may be black, the policy clearly states that trainers are not to be worn and there are to be no logos. Trainers are easily identifiable as they are not in the style of a school shoe, often branded as Nike, Adidas, Vans, Converse or any other named brand. Please ensure that your child is not wearing trainers for school in the future.
I appreciate that there may be some families where there are specific issues relating to finances or other concerns, if this is the case please contact the school office where we will try to be of every assistance to you.
Thank you for your support.
Miss A Williams
