Uniform with our school motif can be purchased at 'Rag Tags' in Blandford or through School Trends (see links to the side). However, 'motifed' items are not mandatory. and you are free to source clothing elsewhere as long as it follows the guidlines set out below. All items of uniform must be named.
Our children wear white or pale blue shirts, blouses or polo shirts. Both boys and girls can wear grey or black trousers or shorts; girls may also wear grey or black skirts or blue gingham summer dresses. Our cardigans and jumpers are royal blue. Grey or black school shoes with laces, a bar or buckles need to secure enough for the children to comfortably run in; socks should be white, grey or black.
We like our children to look smart and well presented, so do ask that they don't wear big or fussy hair accessories.
Stud earrings only please and one watch if necessary. This must be removed for PE and will remain the responsibility of the child. No other jewellery please apart from medical identity necklaces or bracelets.
For PE, our children wear blue t-shirts with Durweston on the back, with black shorts (or leggings in winter). Please avoid leggings with flashes of colour. To keep warm they need a Durweston hoody - royal blue with our name on the back. They need shin pads and a gum shield in the terms that they play hockey. We ask that children wear their PE kit to school on days they have PE. All long hair should be tied back for PE.
Children will also need:
A refillable, leak-proof, named water bottle.
A rucksack - Ragtags stock blue rucksacks with our school logo.
All rucksacks should have at least two sections: a main section that is big enough for a lunch box and a separate section that is big enough to house a reading record/reading journal and reading book. The bag should also have an outside pocket for a weather bottle and a hook on the top to enable it to be hung on a peg.
A waterproof coat which should be in school everyday.
And just repeating this, as it is more important than you would imagine, please make sure all items brought into school are named so that if lost, they can always find their way back to your child.
