At Ralph Sadleir we take great pride in our uniform and our pupils are expected to conform to the uniform code. We would like to thank you in advance, for your help and support in ensuring that your child is always smartly turned out.
All children are expected to wear school uniform and a list of items is shown below. In particular, we ask for your support in respect of sensible footwear and the wearing of a plain navy blue (with or without the school crest) or black coat or anorak.
Children with hair past shoulder length or whose fringe is affecting their vision are required to tie it back neatly. All pupils should retain their natural hair colour and not use tints/dyes or hair decorations during term time. Extreme shaved styles or those with patterns will not be acceptable. Make-up, acrylic nails and/or nail varnish should not be worn.
School uniform should be functional not fashionable in terms of safety, durability and comfort, and should be suitable for the weather and school buildings, grounds and furniture.
Apart from watches, which also should be named, no articles of value should be brought into school. Children are not permitted to wear jewellery, except for small plain gold / silver ear studs to be worn in the ear lobe only (no more than one in each ear). Pupils with pierced ears will be expected to remove their earrings for all PE and Games activities. If you are going to allow your child to get their ears pierced then at the beginning of the summer holidays is the most sensible time.
- Mobile phones and other electronic equipment may only be brought in to school with permission from parents and pupils must adhere to the School’s Mobile Phone Expectations.
Each item of clothing, including sports kit should be marked with the pupil’s name in order to help us to return lost property to the owner. Games and P.E. kit should be brought to school on Games and Physical Education days and taken home again. A bag suitable for carrying books and equipment to and from school is recommended and must be black or navy.

A bag suitable for carrying books and equipment to and from school is recommended, preferably black or navy.
Keeping your child’s property safe is their own responsibility. Their teachers are very busy people and, whilst they will do what they can to help return lost items, they have other priorities to deal with.
Every piece of your child’s property should be named and, if so, it should be quickly returned to them directly to their class teacher if it is mislaid. If not, suggest that your child first looks in the ‘Lost Property’ box which is outside the Inside Changing Rooms and in their cloakroom area (preferably before or after school when it is not full of bags and coats).
Every effort is made to find items of property and clothing that ‘go missing’. Items are every often found where the pupil last used them so retracing their steps is a good first move.
