The uniform policy is compulsory. All children are expected to maintain a high standard of appearance and to wear our indoor school uniform which, although kept as simple and inexpensive as possible, is most effective and has brought many compliments from visitors to the School. Children not in uniform will receive a call home/ seclusion.

When purchasing School Uniform clothes or shoes parents are reminded to check Villiers School Policy as a shop’s definition of School Uniform may not necessarily agree with our School Policy.
All children need a sensible, plain and inexpensive school coat which should be suitable for the weather conditions prevailing and may vary from season to season. Coats bearing inappropriate lettering or slogans are not acceptable, neither are denim or leather jackets including imitation.
In very severe weather it is perfectly acceptable/sensible for both boys and girls to wear suitable outdoor clothing/footwear to and from School and to slip on for outside play at dinner time. Children will, however, be expected to remove or change such items inside School.
Parents are implored to mark all items of clothing with the child’s name as School will not take responsibility for lost items of clothing. All children need a handkerchief every day. All children are required to come and go from school in full uniform for all events and occasions including evening events.
The School P.E. Kit is compulsory. For indoor P.E., all children require a pair of black pumps, a pair of sensible navy shorts and a pale blue tee-shirt inscribed with the School Crest which is available from School. The P.E. Kit is to be kept at school in a pump bag during the week.
For outdoor P.E. a pair of Training Shoes (no wheels), a Navy Sweatshirt with School Logo, available from School, and a pair of Joggers are essential. P.E. Kit may be purchased through the School Office.
Children involved in swimming lessons will need to provide all in one swimming costume/trunks (not baggy), towel and bathing cap. All Girls are expected to wear a bathing cap and Boys are required to wear a cap as directed by members of staff. Parents should note that Swimming and P.E. is a compulsory part of the curriculum and all children are required to participate every week. Children unable to participate in swimming will be sent with work to the SMT (Non Swimmers KS2). Children who do not bring a P.E. kit will borrow one from school. All children are expected to participate in P.E. and must have kits in School.
An old adult size shirt should be kept at school to wear for Art/Craft work.
Older children in particular will want, and find it useful, to have a bag in which to carry books and equipment to and from School. Children and parents are asked to remember that storage space at school is extremely limited and that therefore such bags/packs should be as small as possible. Children should also be able to carry them easily!
