Thank you for supporting us with providing your child with the correct uniform. We are proud of how smart the children look. At Gomer Junior School we have a school uniform because we recognise that a consistent uniform approach increases children’s identity and self-esteem, impacting positively on behaviour. It also puts the children in the right frame of mind for working. Additionally, it ensures that pupils are not differentiated one from another because of the clothes they wear to school. We have given careful consideration to the uniform list ensuring that it is readily available and reasonably priced. Children are to wear their PE kit to school on their PE days – please see calendar for these.
PLEASE mark your child’s name in ALL clothing and personal belongings to help us return them if they are mislaid.

Hair: In line with health and safety and to maintain a smart appearance, hair that can be tied back needs to be tied back (in any way you choose) with discrete neutral or school-coloured hair ties / bands.
One natural colour, grade 2 or longer. Extremes of fashion of the colouring or the nature of the cut are not acceptable.
With the exception of a single or a pair of stud earrings in pierced ears or a digital or analogue watch, children should not wear jewellery to school. Fitness trackers are welcomed for time telling and the tracking of ‘steps’. Smart Watches, which are camera and internet-enabled enabled are not permitted in school due to the possible distraction that these devices can pose. Any misuse (e.g. playing a game that some are enabled with) will lead to them not being permitted in school. The school cannot accept any responsibility or liability for mislaid personal jewellery. To help keep your child safe, earrings and watches need to be removed for PE. Therefore, you may wish to advise your child not to wear these on PE days.
