Parents should appreciate at the outset that we attach great importance to the wearing of the correct (as described) uniform. The school uniform should also fit and not be over-large or too small. Articles of uniform bought from other suppliers or mix-and-match arrangements are not acceptable.

Parents should note that all boys are expected to have their hair trimmed to a point where it finishes above collar height and above and behind the ears and eyes.

Girls should have their hair tied back neatly if it is longer than shoulder length, and hair accessories should be in accordance with school colours (dark purple or green).

Pupils should not have their hair shaved, dyed or cut in an unusual or eccentric manner.

Official supplier

The school’s official uniform supplier is John Lewis. You can purchase The Pointer School uniform here.

School Bags

The school office holds a stock of backpacks which come in two sizes.  Parents may choose to purchase one of these to use for all purposes, e.g. Books, PE items, swimming kit (for which a plastic carrier bag should also be provided) and to take on school trips and visits.  Or there is a designated book bag which is available from the school outfitters, Whitehall Clothiers, specifically for the transportation to and from school of books.

Name tapes

Please note that your child’s name should be placed by means of a name tape or permanent ink on all items of clothing and equipment. Young children often misplace personal articles and this simple procedure will certainly help our staff in identifying clothing/equipment.

Coats and blazers

Parents should also be aware that it is mandatory that all boys and girls wear their blazers (in the correct size) to school throughout the year. Furthermore, from the Autumn half-term to the end of Spring Term the school coat or waterproof must be worn over the top of the blazer. An ‘either/or’ policy does not exist.

Second-hand uniform

It may be of interest to some parents that the school has a small stock of good quality second-hand uniforms. Second-hand uniform sales occur once a term or by appointment. Please contact the school office for more information.
