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 from the School Office. Children wear grey trousers, skirts or shorts, a white polo shirt and a purple school sweatshirt. These should be worn with sensible black shoes. Platforms and high heels are discouraged and are unsuitable 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 from the School Office 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.  If this is difficult, then please provide plasters to be placed over the earrings during the PE lesson.
