Message for parents


Provision for Pupils of Key Workers only (children highlighted in the government key workers document) from Friday 27th March and during the Easter holidays will be at Shute Primary School – 01297 33348 or email

The government are advising that, “If it is at all possible for children to be at home they should be”.  Using the school as a care provider should be the last option and only if you cannot keep your child safe at home.  The aim of closing schools is to minimise social interaction and to stop the spread of the virus.

School Uniform & Dress Code


The school uniform is as follows:

School Sweatshirts or Cardigans Royal blue with embroidered school name *
Shirts/blouses White tailored style or white polo shirts
Trousers/skirts Grey or black
P.E. Black shorts or black joggers/leggings for winter
Royal blue T-shirt *
Summer Dresses Royal blue gingham
Shorts Tailored grey or black

* Sweatshirts, Cardigans and PE tops are available from the school office (subject to availability)

All children should have trainers for PE and a draw-string bag in which to keep their P.E. kit in.

Policy Statement on Code of Dress


When pupils are neatly and appropriately dressed, pride in the School is encouraged.


  • To aid corporate identity and sense of community
  • To help parents avoid conflict over dress and reduce cost
  • To alleviate socio-economic distinctions and extreme gender stereotyping!
  • To minimise risks to health and safety.

Broad Guidelines:

  • It is expected that all pupils will wear the school uniform.
  • Suitable footwear should be worn (trainers are not acceptable for normal classroom wear)
  • Appropriate clothing must be worn for activities such as P.E., Games, Art & Craft, swimming, cookery and for other outdoor activities.
  • In the interests of safety, dangling earrings and jewellery are not permitted (except watches – provided that owners of the bleeping variety can switch them off promptly when required to do so by a member of staff).
  • All school clothing (this includes vests, pants and shoes for the very young) should be  clearly marked with the child’s name.  If this is not done, we will put the child’s initials on a suitable label.
