At Castle Hill Primary School we have a strict uniform policy. The uniform is continually enhanced by pupil input and is supported by all. There is no exception.

Uniform is available from Greenways Newsagents in Winklebury, Skoolkit in Basingstoke town centre, M&S and now Tesco (using the F&F Uniform Embroidery Service).

To order through Tesco use this link Tesco Uniform and select Castle Hill Primary School and by doing so CHPS will benefit from 5% cash donation as well as you earning Clubcard points.

Please be aware: Tesco has today announced the closure of it’s general merchandise and clothing website, Tesco Direct, which will cease trading on 9 July 2018. We wanted to let you know that Tesco’s Uniform Embroidery Service is unaffected and products will still be available at https://www.tesco.com/direct/ues

Please note:

For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery. The only exception to this rule is where children have just had their ears pierced, in these cases the ear-ring studs need to be covered with a plaster until such time that they can be removed altogether. Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.

Hair bands, ribbons/bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be plain and in the school colours blue, red or black. Hair bands should not have large flowers or bows attached.

Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of school hours function, for example a school disco.

Personal Belongings

There are a few items that should not be brought into school for safety reasons. These obviously include things such as matches, knives, personal stereos, jewellery, money, collectable cards, expensive toys or precious items, as well as any other dangerous articles. Electronic equipment, such as mobile phones, smart watches, fitbits and hand held games are not permitted in school (see information below).

The school cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage to any personal items brought into school.
‘Smart’ Watches, Mobile Phones and other electronic devices.

 

Dear Parents

As agreed by governors and our Student Senate, please be aware that, although we encourage children to wear watches into school, we do not allow your child to wear a ‘smart’ watch, or any watch that has the same functionality as a mobile phone or PC, on the school site.

Additionally, can we remind parents that mobile phones are not permitted in school.  The only exception to this ruling is when it has been agreed that a child is permitted to walk some distance to and from school, and the parent feels that they should have one for contact in an emergency.  In this instance we request that we have this in writing prior to the arrangement commencing, where possible this phone should be a basic model and not a smartphone.  On arrival, the phone should be handed to your child’s class teacher, who will return it at the end of the school day.

Please note: the school accepts no liability for loss or damage while on school premises, and if it has been found that a phone is being used inappropriately on school grounds, it will be confiscated.
Any mobile phone/device/smart watch which is used without the permission of a member of staff will be confiscated and kept in a safe place by the school until appropriate arrangements can be made for the collection of the phone/device/smart watch. The child will be dealt with in accordance with the school behaviour policy.

Under no circumstances should a mobile phone/device/smart watch be used to record still or video images, or to record audio whilst on the school premises.

The above stipulations are part of our safeguarding and child protection protocols and your compliance is requested for the safety and well-being of the whole school community.

Thank you in advance for you support.
