The uniform for the SEND Unit is our school hoodie, school polo shirt and navy joggers. This is so the children are part of the St Edmund’s community, but also is more accessible for pupils with physical and sensory needs.
Children should wear PE kit to school on PE days. This is made up of our school t-shirt with logo and navy shorts. As the weather gets colder the children will be allowed to wear navy blue tracksuit bottoms (not fashion items) for outdoor PE if they wish.
Uniform with our logo is available from Aubyn Davies. All other uniform is also available from Aubyn Davies but can also be purchased from a high street store.
You can visit the Aubyn Davies website to order online at www.aubyndavies.co.uk. Or you can visit the shop at 81 St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1SQ.
Please ensure the children have the correct uniform including sensible shoes, (navy blue/black), trainers are not allowed in school except for PE. In the summer sandals must be closed around the toe and heel.
All children need a black or navy waterproof coat with hood to wear in the playground everyday even during the summer. (Unless it is raining very heavily the children will go out to play at break and lunchtimes). Many fashion coats are unsuitable as they are not waterproof or do not have a hood. Black or navy gilets can also be worn if required.
In our Unit we take our learning outside as much as possible, so having waterproof clothes, spare trousers and wellies would also be beneficial for the children.
School bags should either be the school logo bag available from Aubyn Davies or a similar drawstring bag, rucksacks should not be brought into school.
Please ensure that all items of uniform are labelled clearly with name and class. Name labels can be purchased from Label Planet https://www.stikins.co.uk and if you use our reference number (35787) when purchasing the school receives commission. There is a pen in the office for emergency use. Named items will be returned to the owner and not kept in lost property. As many of you have purchased the school coats it is especially important they are labelled. Please label inside the pocket so we know where to look for names. Lost property can be found through the school office. Lost property will be displayed regularly and disposed of each half term if it is not claimed.
Jewellery, apart from a watch and small stud earrings, is not allowed in school. If your child wears earrings they should not wear them on PE days, including swimming. If your child does wish to have their ears pierced please can we encourage you to do this at the beginning of the Summer holidays so that they can be removed for PE. Children will not be permitted to participate in PE if they are wearing earrings.
