We hope all children feel that wearing their Cliftonville uniform is a badge of pride, creating an identity for our school and bringing together our whole community. We are very grateful to the support from our parents and carers who ensure that children have the correct uniform on every day. Mrs Harper, with help from some fabulous parent helpers, keeps a stock of good quality second-hand items which helps to keep costs down for our families. Children must not wear trainers to school; all children must have black school shoes.
We have invested in lockers for all the children, so that they can be supported in looking after their belongings.
Hair cuts should be age appropriate and suitable to the school environment – hair should not be dyed, unless temporarily for non school uniform days, and short hair should not have patterns or words shaved into it.
This wording was suggested by our Parents' Forum and agreed by the Senior Leadership Team.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS:
Children move around the building to go to sets, the library, assembly and out on the field/playground. Unless items are labelled correctly we have very little chance of re-uniting them with your child. It is also, understandably, frustrating for parents who are trying to find labelled uniform amongst a huge box of unnamed items. Every child has a named locker and between staff and parents we need to teach them to take responsibility for their belongings. If, by mistake, you end up with someone else’s named uniform at home, please return it the next day.
WE CANNOT STORE UNNAMED LOST PROPERTY.
IF IT ISN’T NAMED AND IT ISN’T CLAIMED IT WILL BE THROWN AWAY.
