At Juniper Hill School we pride ourselves in being smart, well presented and ready for learning. It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to wear their shirts tucked into their skirts, shorts or trousers and to take a pride in their personal appearance.
All of the items in our school uniform are easily available, at very competitive prices, at local shops including supermarkets.
Our Juniper Hill jumper is a branded item with the Juniper Hill logo on it, however, the children can wear plain red jumpers or cardigans if they wish.
All children can wear any of the items of clothing, e.g. both boys and girls can wear trousers, skirts and tights.
A complete list of the items needed for school uniform including those for Physical Education can be found below.
The school has considered the latest non-statutory and statutory guidance on the cost of school uniforms when writing the policy, to ensure the school complies with our obligations under the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Equality Act 2010.

Jewellery, Hair Ornaments, Make-up and Nail Varnish
For many reasons, including safety, we do not allow children to wear jewellery. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears. Children are required to remove any items during P.E. lessons to prevent them from causing injury.
Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.
Hair bands, ribbons/bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be plain and either red brown or black to match our uniform. Hair bands should not have large flowers or other decoration attached. Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school.
Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.

The PTA are sensitive to the different needs of the families in our community and will always give away second hand uniform where necessary / needed.
