The standard of children’s dress at Dove CE Academy is exceptionally high with all children wearing school uniform, some of which can be purchased online http://www.brigadeparents.info/
Uniform consists of grey trousers, skirts, dresses or shorts, a white polo shirt, shirt or blouse and a purple school sweatshirt or cardigan. These should be worn with sensible black shoes. Platforms and high heels are not allowed as they are unsafe for children running around in the playground.
All children participate in at least two PE lessons each week and need suitable clothing. Shorts and T-shirts are available online http://www.brigadeparents.info/ and these can be brought to school in a PE bag at the beginning of each week along with a pair of plimsolls or trainers.
All clothes worn to school need to be clearly labelled with your child’s name; when children get changed for PE clothes can sometimes become mixed up with their friends and it is often difficult to match clothes to their owners unless they are clearly labelled. In the interest of safety, earrings should be restricted to a single stud in the lower lobe and these should be removed on the days when your child participates in PE.
