The school colour is navy blue. Governors and parents have agreed that the following basic clothing is required:
- Navy blazer
- Navy cardigan/jumper, sleeveless jumper or sweatshirt
- White shirt and tie
- Navy or grey trousers or skirt or pinafore
- Black sensible shoes
We encourage a smart appearance, with shirts buttoned fully and tucked in, and ties secured neatly up to the neck. Children should not wear jewellery, apart from plain stud earrings in pierced ears. It is not acceptable for a child to wear makeup or nail varnish, or to have any unnatural hair colour. Watches may be worn, but these must be the child’s sole responsibility.
Children should keep their kit at school all week. We ask that kit bags are small and easy to store, a drawstring bag is ideal.
The recommended kit consists of:
- White t-shirt
- Black PE shorts
In Key Stage 1, no footwear is worn for gymnastics and indoor PE, suitable footwear can be worn in Key Stage 2. For outdoor sessions children will need plimsolls or trainers. Children may wear tracksuits on chilly days. For safety reasons, children with long hair must have it tied back and watches and earrings must be removed.
School uniform is ordered directly from Tailormade in Daventry at www.customkit.co.uk Click on school and corporate wear and you will see the Welton logo.
We provide children with basic writing materials. Older children may be encouraged to use their own writing and drawing equipment, but this is not essential. We do ask that children keep these in small containers which are stored in their trays at the end of the day. Children will need a bag to carry their equipment to and from school. For storage reasons we ask that these are appropriate and modest in size! A Welton book bag is available through the PTA.
Children who wear glasses should bring a case to keep them in when they are not wearing them.
All items of clothing and equipment must be clearly marked with the child’s name. Name labels are available from the PTA and will even be sewn in for a small charge!
Lost clothing, which is un-named, is stored in a metal container in the KS2 cloakroom area. Other items are handed in to the Office or given to a class teacher. Money that is unclaimed is placed in the School Fund.
