What to wear in nursery
Children can wear their own casual clothes for nursery. We do like them to wear a royal blue round neck sweatshirt and these are sold at Clive Marks with the school logo embroidered on them. A plain round neck sweatshirt is also acceptable, which you may find from local supermarkets.
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. Clive marks recommend you order online https://www.clivemark.co.uk/. Some items are available from the school office. and you can buy some parts of the uniform from the large supermarkets.
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 would prefer items to be paid via our parent mail system.
We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to children’s property. Please always put your child's name and class on all their belongings. You are advised to cover your children’s property 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 a 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.
