Sennybridge C.P. School
Ysgol Gynradd Pontsenni
We believe that a school uniform is important because it looks smart, it wears well, it contributes to a sense of belonging, it gives a common purpose and fosters a feeling of pride. We ask that pupils wear the uniform and we encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.
Our school colours are royal blue, pale blue and grey.
Our school uniform consists of:
Pupils can wear school fleeces or waterproof coats or any coloured coat.
Our uniform is usually displayed within the school for parents to see and can be ordered through the School Secretary. Parents are respectfully asked to name all items of pupils’ clothing.
For health and safety reasons, it is important that pupils are appropriately dressed for any physical activity. School PE kit is available to purchase from the school secretary, which includes a kit bag when purchasing a t -shirt and shorts. PE kit should be kept in a separate bag.
Our PE kit consists of:
Other useful items:
In addition to the uniform and PE kit, wet weather gear, school bags, book bags, PE bags, water bottles and caps emblazoned with the school badge may be ordered through the school secretary. However, please note that there is NO expectation that you purchase clothing which has the school logo on it.
Jewellery / Make up / Hair:
We request that pupil jewellery is kept to a minimum for safety reasons. Ear studs and watches are acceptable. Watches need to be removed and earrings removed or taped for P.E. activities.
It is recommended that hair accessories are kept simple, such as slides, ribbons, bobbles etc. No makeup, including nail varnish should be worn, or body tattoos.
We recommend that hair should be neat and tidy and worn with no extremes of style or colour. We also recommend that long hair should be tied back during the school day.
School Uniform Grant
If your child is eligible for free school meals, you can also get a school uniform grant when they start Year 7 at high school or go to a special school, special needs resource base or pupil referral unit and are aged 11 at the start of the school year.
Powys County Council find eligible pupils using the free school meals records and get in touch with parents/carers about the school uniform grant.
If your child is transferring to a school outside Powys, please apply to the authority that maintains the school.
