Our school uniform gives a clear message that all our students are part of the Kelmscott community and therefore should be worn with pride. 

Great thought has gone into ensuring that uniform reflects our beliefs in equality but the same time respects individual beliefs and cultures.

To this end we ask that parents/carers give us full support in ensuring their children wear the correct uniform at all times. Full details of the correct uniform requirements are found within the journal.

Mid grey Shalwar Kameze may be worn. This should be straight cut and an appropriate length. Jilbabs are not part of the school uniform and should not be worn. The Hijab should be mid grey with no logos or patterns; it should be folded neatly and worn above or on the shoulder. Only the fabric from Fashion Fair should be used for Shalwar Kameze and the Hijab. For health and safety reasons the Hijab must be tied back during Science, P.E, Food, Resistant Materials lessons and whilst carrying out other practical based activities.

Any hair accessories should be plain navy blue or black. Make up should be discreet. Girls may be asked by Heads of Year to remove excess make up.

The school accepts no responsibility for banned items brought into school or for items confiscated for inappropriate use. The Headteacher's decision on the appropriateness of uniform, hairstyle and jewellery for school is final.

During PE lessons pupils  must remove all items of jewellery . It is the responsibility of pupils to hand in  all valuables to PE staff at the beginning of the lesson. The PE staff cannot be responsible for any valuables left in the changing rooms.

If stud earrings are new and cannot be removed, pupils must ensure they have plasters with them to stick over them to prevent injury. Please note that all religious jewellery must be removed during lessons for health and safety of the pupils.

It is important that students have the correct equipment/stationary to enable them to complete tasks to the best of their ability at school and home. Not having the correct equipment in class can be very disruptive and a distraction from teaching.

Students need to bring to school everyday in their pencil cases:

2 x pens

Red pen



Sharpener and rubber



Reading Book

We would also suggest students have access at home to:

Colouring pencils


Mobile Phones

Mobile telephones and audio devices are permitted on the school site but must never be used inside the school building. The school is entitled to confiscate mobile phones or audio devices being used inappropriately. Parents/carers may be required to collect this equipment from the front office.
