At Leasowes Primary School our appearance is of the utmost importance to us and makes us feel like we belong. It also supports our attitude to learning and develops pride in ourselves. Linking to our school charter, if we look smart, then we think smart and act smart.
All pupils are expected to wear the uniform in full to school every day. Please read the attached letter carefully as some of our stipulations may vary to ones set by other schools attended by siblings.
Please see Forest School section for Forest School kit list.
Leasowes Primary School Uniform
At Leasowes we wear white collared shirts (long or short-sleeved), together with our school tie. A school tie must be worn at all times. A full tie or a clip-on tie is available to purchase from school or Crested Schoolwear. A blue school cardigan or V-necked jumper with the school logo must also be worn. This is accompanied by a blue tartan skirt/pinafore dress or black trousers (no leggings or jeans). Cardigans, jumpers, skirts and pinafore dresses can also be purchased from Crested Schoolwear based in Stafford town centre. Black tights and black socks with sensible black shoes or plain black boots for the winter months (no trainers or pumps).
Please note that our PTFA, for a small donation, sell good quality second hand uniform. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries. See flyer below.
Changes During the Year
We encourage everyone to wear our main school uniform all year round. However, in the summer, children are able to wear black shorts or blue and white checked summer dresses with white socks.
Sports kits are an essential part of physical education. They ensure children remain safe whilst being active and are key for personal hygiene. Children will be expected to wear a blue t-shirt with logo, black shorts or skort, black socks and a Leasowes hoody is optional. We encourage children to wear inexpensive trainers, we do not stipulate a colour. Additional warm clothing e.g. tracksuit where necessary.
The wearing of jewellery in school is not permitted with exception of one pair of plain studded earrings and watches. This is to ensure the health and safety of the children. Children are not allowed to wear any jewellery for PE and must be able to remove earrings by themselves as staff are not allowed to assist or tape them up. Therefore, if children are unable to remove their own earrings, please do not allow them to wear them on PE days. Please remember that PE is a legal requirement in which children must participate. With this in mind, we suggest that children having ears pierced do so at the beginning of the summer holiday.
Hair and Accessories
We expect hairstyles to be presentable and smart without being too extreme. Long hair must be tied back for PE. During lesson time, we encourage hair to be tied back so not to hinder their learning. Accessories, such as headbands, need to be sensible in appearance and size.
Label All School Uniform
At Leasowes, we constantly encourage children of all ages to be independent and responsible for their own belongings. However, we are aware that this is not always easy. Therefore, please ensure that all uniform is clearly labelled. Without this, it is almost impossible to return uniform to the correct child.
