Our Uniform

School uniform is widely considered to promote an effective work ethic, putting children into the right frame of mind to learn. Uniform helps to take away distractions that may be caused by other pupils’ clothing, accessories or hairstyles. At Tany’s Dell, we celebrate our differences and individuality through children’s talents, skills, relationships, determination and successes. Following consultation with the entire community, the overwhelming opinion was that pupils attending Tany’s Dell should wear a uniform.  Therefore, all pupils from Nursery upwards will be expected to wear the full school uniform clearly labelled with their name.

PE Kit

The Government, through the National Curriculum, requires all children to participate in PE and Games, as well as swimming in Key Stage Two.  Therefore, we do require children to have a change of clothes, including plimsolls, for PE and Games in school at all times. These should all be clearly marked with your child’s name and kept in a drawstring bag. 

 PE Kit for Girls and Boys

  • Black nylon shorts
  • Plain white round neck t-shirt (not polo)
  • Plimsolls for indoor PE
  • Trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE/Games
  • Plain black or grey jogging bottoms & sweatshirt for cold weather (optional)
  • Long hair to be tied back 

 

Apart from the sweatshirt/cardigan bearing the school logo, all items of the Tany's Dell School Uniform can easily be purchased at very reasonable prices from supermarkets, Primark, Matalan, and Marks & Spencer's. Pre-worn items in good condition will also be sold in school once a term. 

 

ALL items of uniform MUST be clearly labelled with your child's name. School staff cannot be responsible for reuniting un-labelled items of clothing with their rightful owner. Your co-operation in this matter is very much appreciated.

 

Jewellery

Pupils are not allowed to wear make-up, nail polish and jewellery.  (Junior children are allowed to wear a watch). The school can take no responsibility for any items worn or brought to school or any accident caused to any child through the wearing of any item of jewellery.  Children who have their ears pierced are permitted to wear stud earrings but no earrings should be worn on days when the child has PE.  We reserve the right to ask your child to remove any jewellery before PE or Games lessons. 

 

Hair

Children’s hairstyles contribute to their overall appearance and as such, are part of the school uniform. In the main, our children’s hairstyles are appropriate, however on occasion, the headteacher has had to remind parents about maintaining a suitable hairstyle for their child at school, especially with regards to hair dye, ‘creative shaving’ and extensions, all of which are not generally allowed. Children with long hair are encouraged to wear hair clips or bands, or to tie it back as this keeps hair out of children’s eyes which can often distract them in their studies. This also helps us with our fight against head lice.

 

 

Worn correctly, uniform conveys a positive image to the general public and can help to instil a sense of pride and of belonging to a community or organisation.  Research has also shown that pupils on the whole are better prepared to work and learn when dressed in uniform. Your help and co-operation in ensuring that your child is suitably dressed for school each day is very much appreciated.
