Uniform 

All pupils are expected to wear school uniform.  The uniform has been chosen so that it is reasonably inexpensive to purchase, durable and easy to obtain.  The stockist is Skoolkit which has an online shop (www.skoolkit.co.uk) and a store in The Meridian Centre, Havant.

A high standard of appearance is usually an indication of good discipline, self-awareness, and responsibility. These are positive points which we would want to emphasise to the growing child. The uniform comprises:

Boys - Winter

  • School royal blue polo shirt with embroidered school badge
  • School royal blue sweatshirt with embroidered school badge
  • Grey trousers (no jeans) or grey shorts
  • Grey socks 
  • Leather shoes (black - not trainers)

Girls - Winter

  • School royal blue polo shirt with embroidered school badge
  • School royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with embroidered school badge
  • Grey skirt, pinafore dress or trousers (no jeans)
  • Grey socks or grey tights 
  • Leather shoes (black -  not trainers)

Boys - Summer

  • School royal blue polo shirt with embroidered school badge
  • School royal blue sweatshirt with embroidered school badge
  • Grey trousers (no jeans) or grey shorts

  • OR Summer dress (pale blue and white checked dress)

PE Kit

  • Navy blue or black shorts

  • Tracksuit (preferably navy blue or black)

Please note that PE kits stay in school and will be sent home each holiday for washing.

Other:

Jewellery - In the interests of safety, the wearing of jewellery is not allowed. Only earrings of the ‘stud' type may be worn in plain silver or gold only. Studs must be removed for P.E. without exception by the child or covered with school tape. We recommend that ear piercing should take place at the beginning of the summer holiday so allowing time for healing.

Watches may be worn, but the school cannot accept responsibility for any damage or loss that may occur.  Please ensure they are named.  During PE watches must be removed and placed in the teacher's drawer. However, such items are not the responsibility of the school and we discourage children from wearing expensive jewellery or watches on the premises.

Hair – long hair when it reaches below the shoulders must be tied up.  Fashion items or items which compromise safety are not permitted in children's hair.  Ribbons or hair accessories must be blue in colour and kept minimal.

Make up and nail varnish are not permitted.  

Shoes should be sensible and comfortable (no trainers except for outdoor PE). Shoes with spiked or high heels should not be worn. Open-toed shoes are discouraged for Health and Safety reasons (crushed toes) and sling backs are not allowed.

Bags – A school rucksack is available from Skoolkit.  A draw-string bag should be provided so that PE and Games clothing may be kept safely. Bags should be of a reasonable size, as larger styles are very difficult to store.

All clothing should be clearly labelled, and outdoor coats should have strong loops to ensure they can be hung correctly on pegs.

The St James' Association organises a second-hand uniform stall a few times each year.
