The School Uniform

Chudleigh Knighton School Uniform

Aims and Objectives of Our Uniform Policy

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a sense of community and belong towards the school
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by the majority of parents
  • Is designed with Health and Safety in mind


The School Uniform


The school has a clearly defined uniform that all the children wear.  The uniform is an integral part of the school ethos.  As a school we have a logo which appears above and is embroidered on our school sweatshirt and PE t-shirt.

Second Hand Uniform

Second hand uniform sales are held periodically and organised by the school's PTFA if you would like to know when the next sale is being held please speak to a member of our PTFA Committee.


Jewellery and Make-Up

The school has an agreed policy for the wearing of jewellery.  Children may have a maximum of one pair of earrings (studs or sleepers and one in each ear) and may wear a watch (not a SMART watch - any watch that can link with the internet or take photographs etc.)

Children will be asked to remove these during PE lessons for health and safety reasons.  If earrings cannot be removed, please provide your child with surgical tape to cover the earrings.

No jewellery or accessory is permitted, including bright coloured or large earrings.

Make-up, including nail polish should not be worn.



Long hair must be tied back.

Hair accessories should be subtle with no beads, large bows are permitted.

No extreme hair styles or hair cuts (eg less than grade 2 in length, mohawks, tram lines or patterns cut into the hair or colour added to the hair.


The Role of Parents and Carers


We ask all parents and carers who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy.  We believe that parents and carers have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork.  One of the responsibilities of parents and carers is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is in good repair.

The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities.  If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents or carers want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.


NB. The school has used the DFE non-statutory guidance on school uniform and agrees with the guidance given in the DFE booklet which states:


'The school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.  The Department strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can install pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, schools ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote gppd relations between different groups of pupils.  The Department also encourages schools to have a very clear position about appearance such as hair colour, style and lenght and the wearing of jewellery and make-up'
