We take great pride in our school and expect that our children are dressed in the correct uniform every day. We believe that this instils a sense of belonging as well as creating a purposeful atmosphere within school. We ask that parents support this by ensuring that the children have the correct uniform at all times and that this is smartly worn.
Girls: Black trousers, skirt or pinafore dress, white blouse/polo-shirt, dark brown Abbot’s Hall sweatshirt/cardigan. Brown or yellow gingham dresses may be worn in the summer.
Boys: Black trousers or shorts, white shirt/polo-shirt, dark brown Abbot’s Hall sweatshirt.
All children should wear sensible black shoes (not trainers), that are not canvas or open toed.
Abbot’s Hall School sweatshirts are on sale from Inces, Ipswich Street, Stowmarket.
All children will need to have black shorts and white t-shirts to change into for PE. Children should have black plimsolls for inside PE and trainers for outside lessons. Warm, dark coloured tracksuits will be needed in the colder weather and sun hats in the warm summer.
Jewellery, rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets can be dangerous to both the wearer and other children during playtimes, PE, games or swimming and should not to be worn to school.
Children with pierced ears may wear small studs but these should be removed for PE. If parents are considering having their child’s ears pierced, the beginning of the summer holidays is advised to allow time for the ears to heal before returning to school in September. Please note that staff are not permitted to remove or replace children’s earrings. Children unable to remove their own earrings will have to cover them with tape before taking part in any physical activity however this does not include swimming. The school swimming service does not allow earrings to be worn.
We request that in the warmer, sunnier months parents apply long lasting sun cream in the morning before coming to school as staff are unable to do this.
