School Uniform

school uniform

At Haydonleigh, we believe in having a school uniform as it can support positive behaviour and discipline; it can encourage identity with, and support the ethos of the school, and helps nurture cohesion between different groups of pupils. Our school uniform is an established feature of our culture which supports our ethos and ensures that our students are dressed for success. 

Regarding religious headwear, our advice is that the wearing of the hijab or jilbab does not present a health and safety hazard to either the wearer of the garment or other pupils. We kindly request that pupils wear a slightly shorter-length jilbab to ensure the child’s mobility and safety in the playground and ease of participating fully in all activities.

Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name. This is especially important, as uniform items look similar and can easily be confused for another child’s. The school cannot accept responsibility for any lost items.

Haydonleigh Primary School reserves the right to make a judgement on the suitability or unsuitability of pupils’ hair and appearance.

Our policy is for children not to have styles that may cause a distraction to other children or raise health and safety concerns. This means no extremes of style or colour.

  • Extreme hairstyles, such as mohawks and patterned or brightly coloured hair are unacceptable.
  • Pupils with designed hairstyles, such as cornrows, may be exempt from the rule above on cultural or religious grounds, taking into consideration each person’s scenario.
  • Pupils with long hair must ensure that this does not impede their vision, cover their face or provide a health and safety risk 
  • Bandana style headbands and flowers or excessive hair accessories are not to be worn, including 'holiday' braids; however, plain hair clips, bands or bows that match the school uniform colours are acceptable. 

Parents of children with inappropriate hairstyles/colour will be contacted by the class teacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

T-shirt top in House Colour (yellow- Panthers, blue- Tigers, red-Cougars or green- Pumas)

Earrings and jewellery will need to be either removed or covered



In line with most secondary schools, we will be adopting a policy of children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 wearing their PE kit to school on designated days. For these year groups only the PE kit will consist of:

  • Light grey plain Hoodie (with or without the school emblem)
  • House Team coloured t-shirt
  • Black jogging bottoms or shorts (plain – no stripes etc – very small emblem acceptable – no football club shorts)
  • Trainers (No daps)
  • Deodorant (Years 5 & 6 only)

Children are to wear PE kit to school on the 2 days each week when the class have PE. 

If a gymnastics unit is being taught, teachers will advertise this on the website, through texts and with children, as shorts will be required for these sessions.  These can be simply worn or worn under jogging bottoms if cold. 

It is considered that the wearing of leggings may present too many issues – some are very thin (see-through), different lengths, different fabrics etc, therefore all children should wear jogging bottoms, please.
