What to wear in school
At St. John’s School we have a uniform which we are really proud of. Visitors to school often comment on how smart our children are. You can buy our uniform from Clive Mark Schoolwear in Poplar Road, Kings Heath. Some items are available from the school office. and you can buy some parts of the uniform from supermarkets.
This should be in a draw-string bag (available from school)
For Girls: Blue shorts/games skirt or plain navy joggers, blue t-shirt with logo (available from school) and pumps (not trainers)
For Boys: Blue shorts or plain navy joggers, blue t-shirt with logo (available from school) and pumps (not trainers)
Outdoor PE kit: Plain navy blue joggers and plain navy sweat shirt.
A swimming costume (not shorts or leotard) and a towel in a swimming bag (available from school) or a plastic carrier bag.
Children’s clothes and pumps should be marked with their names.
Jewellery in school
Please do not let your child attend school wearing jewellery. It can easily cause injury or get lost especially during PE or playtime. Children who have pierced ears should only wear studs – but even the butterflies can cause an injury. Anything worn for religious reasons must be removed or covered for PE.
Please do not send your child to school with large amounts of money or other expensive items such as ipods, phones etc. Parents sending any money to school e.g. for dinners or school visits, should seal it inside an envelope and write on it the child’s name, class and what the money is for.
We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to children’s property. You are advised to cover your children’s properly on home insurance. Better still, avoid sending items of value into school.
Lost properly baskets are situated in both Key Stages. This can be located by the library. If you feel that you have lost PE kit, please see Mrs Bhardwa. Please encourage your child to look in the baskets if they believe they have lost something. These baskets are cleared at the end of each term.
