Welton CE Academy

At Welton CE we continually strive and motivate our students through a rich and inspiring curriculum.
“We are a forward-thinking school rooted in the community – everyone learning and growing in faith.”
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit”

Uniform

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.

PE Kit

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

Other Equipment

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 Friends of Welton’.

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. 

Lost Property

Lost clothing, which is un-named, is stored in a metal container outside the front office.

Other items are handed in to the Office or given to a class teacher.  Money that is unclaimed is placed in the School Fund.
