School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of the school and setting an appropriate tone. It instils pride, supports positive behaviour and protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way. Above all, we believe that appropriate school uniform supports effective teaching and learning. This policy has been developed by staff, in conjunction with the School Council.
In order to maintain a strong sense of identity, children are required to wear school uniform at all times. Below are the official school uniform garments for Lower Peover CE School, the uniform consists of:
Pale blue blouse/shirt and school tie or pale blue (sky) polo shirt with logo
Navy blue V neck pullover / sweatshirt or cardigan with logo
Plain grey skirt / pinafore dress
Plain grey trousers
School Fleece with logo
Reversible waterproof/ fleece school coat with logo
Light blue (sky) polo shirt with logo
Grey trousers or shorts
Light blue check Gingham check dress
White Socks (with Gingham check dress)
Grey socks (with trousers or shorts)
White T shirt
All clothes, shoes and lunch boxes must be named. P.E. clothes should be kept in a small drawstring bag. Please do not send your child to school with a large sports type bag as space in the cloakrooms is at a premium.
