School Uniform

School uniform is widely considered to promote an effective work ethic, putting children into the right frame of mind to learn. Uniform helps to take away distractions that may be caused by other pupils’ clothing, accessories or hairstyles. At Ongar Primary Schooll, we celebrate our differences and individuality through children’s talents, skills, relationships, determination and successes.  All pupils will be expected to wear the full school uniform clearly labelled with their name.

Our current uniform supplier is Createidentitee, click here to order directly from their website or printed order forms are available from the school reception area.

All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

As with all personal property, the school cannot and does not accept any responsibility for any lost earrings or other jewellery brought into school.

Essex County Council advises that it is safer for a child who normally wears glasses to continue to do so for any P.E. activity.  If your child wears glasses please discuss this with their class teacher.  In planning P.E. lessons, teachers will take all reasonable steps to minimise the risk of an accident by considering the activity involved and the child’s role. Parents are encouraged to consider their responsibilities by providing glasses which are softer-edged with shatterproof glass and secured firmly to the head.

Lost Property  -  All items of clothing should be clearly labelled.   This helps children identify their own clothes and assists with reuniting lost property. The lost property is kept in a box in the front foyer but it is often the case that items of clothing have been left in their classroom.  It is always worth checking with your child’s teacher if you are missing any items.
