- Children and Families
- School Uniform
At Sythwood, we have high expectations of children and expect them to wear the correct uniform. By wearing the uniform, all children have a sense of belonging and feel part of the Sythwood family. Our high expectations around the uniform prepare children for high school and their future careers.
The above poster details the uniform expectations for our school.
All children should wear a navy jumper with a grey skirt, trousers, shorts or pinafore dress. School summer dresses should be yellow check only and children should wear yellow polo shirts (with or without the school logo).
Any hair accessories worn should be in the school colours of navy, black, yellow or white. If children have accessories in different colours then they will be asked to remove them.
School shoes must be entirely black with no other colours. Boots and shoes with a heel are not permitted.
The following are not permitted at our school:
- nail varnish
- any earrings which are not studs
- inappropriate hair cuts
Incorrect Uniform Procedure
Any children wearing incorrect uniform will be provided with uniform and/or shoes from school until they have their own correct uniform. If a child refuses to wear the uniform provided, they will miss some of their playtime.
Many of the plain items can be bought from local supermarkets, but if you would like to buy uniform with the Sythwood School logo, please visit Griffiths by Valentino at 25-27 The Broadway, Knaphill, Woking, GU21 2DR. Telephone: 01483 473357. These include sweatshirts, cardigans, yellow polo shirts and P.E. T-shirts.
Uniforms with the new logo will be gradually rolled out.
Support with uniform
We understand the cost of purchasing school uniform can be expensive. If you would like support witht this, please speak to your child's class teacher or a member of SLT. We have a range of second had uniform and shoes available at the school office as well as frequent uniform sales at school. We would be more than happy to help in any way to ensure your child feels a sense of belonging and that they are part of Sythwood.
Book bags and P.E. bags can be purchased from the school office.
Please ensure that all items that your child wears for school are clearly marked with your child's name.
For PE lessons, children wear their P.E. kit to and from school. Appropriate trainers mst be worn for P.E.
- Pierced Ears: It is Surrey County Council Policy that children may not do P.E. wearing earrings. Plasters stuck over the earrings are not allowed. If you are considering having your child's ears pierced, please do so at the beginning of the summer holidays. We are not allowed to take out children's earrings - they must be able to do it themselves.
- Hijabs (head scarves) that join under the chin are not to be worn during P.E. Hijabs that cover the head but are tied behind the neck are suitable.
