Our School Uniform
Children will need their blazer in school every day. They will need to wear their blazer at the start
of the school day and for formal occasions. Children will be sent home wearing their blazer at the
end of the day. During the day, especially when taking part in messy play, blazers will be taken
off. We will endeavour to help the children to keep them as clean as possible.
Children will need an appropriate outdoor coat to be worn on top of their school blazer when
the weather requires this. A red RFPS weatherproof coat is available, but is not a compulsory item.
Children will need sun hats and sun cream as appropriate in the summer. Please apply sun cream
before the school day starts as we cannot do this at school.
Long hair must be tied back. Girls may wear one pair of small gold or silver studs. These will need
to be taken out or covered for P.E., so it is more convenient if they don’t wear them at all. Children
may wear a sensible watch, but no other jewellery unless it is of specific religious significance. No
nail varnish or make up should be worn at school.
Children will not need to bring any equipment to school such as pencil cases, books or personal bags. Everything they need will be provided for them. Children should not bring additional items to school as these can easily get lost and distract children from their learning. Occasionally children will be asked to bring in things which are relevant to a school topic or activity, in these cases please make sure that all these items are carefully labelled.
RFPS book bags
Reading is a crucial part of children’s early development. At Rugby Free Primary School we will be using the Read Write Inc programme for reading and phonics development. As part of this, children will be set daily reading tasks to complete at home. It is therefore crucial that every child has a RFPS book bag which is brought to school every day in order that these skills can be developed. RFPS book bags can be purchased from the school.
RFPS PE kit bags
Children are encouraged to keep their PE kits in school. They should be stored in a RFPS kit bag. RFPS kit bags can be purchased from the school.
All items must be clearly labelled. Items do occasionally go missing at school. We will only be able to help you in finding items if they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
