At Orchard Junior we believe it is important to dress smartly.
There is a pride in appearance and a tidy image is presented to visitors and the community.
Skoolkit are our uniform provider for embroidered items (click link).
The main part of our uniform is the bottle green top, available as a sweatshirt or cardigan, and embroidered with the school logo.
A white or yellow polo shirt should be worn by all children, preferably embroidered.
Trousers, shorts or skirts should be dark grey in colour.
Skirts should be at least knee length, and shorts should be to just above the knee.
Girls, in the Summer months (April to October), are allowed to wear a green checked dress.
Sensible, traditional school shoes should be worn during the school day (no boots, trainers or sandals.)
COVID PE Kit requirements: Normally children should not wear any of their main school uniform as part of their PE kit. However, during COVID, on PE days only, children should come to school wearing their school jumper/ cardigan (not a hoodie/ sweatshirt) on top of a simple white t-shirt to help keep them warm. Either dark plain shorts or dark plain tracksuit trousers should also be worn.
The School's usual PE kit requirements are: a simple white t-shirt and black shorts. Plain, dark coloured (dark grey, blue or black) tracksuits are advisable for outdoor sports on colder days.
"Short shorts" are not appropriate.
Jewellery: with the exception of watches and single stud gold earrings, should not be worn.
Earrings must be removed or taped for PE lessons.
Haircuts: should be simple and traditional, in keeping with our school uniform.
Fashionable hairstyles are not appropriate for school, including unnecessarily large hair accessories, dyed hair, tramlines etc.
We ask that hair accessories are small, plain, practical (i.e. they are actually holding hair back) and simple.
PLEASE ENSURE ALL ITEMS OF SCHOOL UNIFORM, INCLUDING PE KIT, ARE FULLY NAMED WITH PERMANENT INK.
