Part of the Longford Code, as devised by the children, is 'Pride' - 'We take pride in our work and our appearance, and we look after the school community'
Our appearance is very important to us - we only get one chance to make a good first impression! No matter what time of year it is, children should wear the correct school uniform.
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support our code of dress. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork.
NB School uniform with the logo is available through Tesco online or from Crested Schoolwear, Cannock.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are small plain gold or silver studs in pierced ears and small discreet watches.
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.
Make-up and nail varnish is not permitted.
The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities, please discuss objects and clothing of religious significance with your child's class teacher.
Correct PE kit should be worn for lessons and after school clubs. Long hair (past the ears) MUST be tied back for safety - both girls and boys!
To keep your child safe, please ensure earrings are completely REMOVED on PE days. Plasters are not a suitable solution for covering earrings - accidents can still happen.
