DGFS Early Years Uniform

 

 

Children in the Early Years will be exploring the indoor and outdoor environments and much of their learning will be through physical activity. School clothing therefore needs to be comfortable but also practical and appropriate for running, climbing, painting, etc.

 

We are currently adapting our Early Years uniform to meet the needs of our youngest learners. From September 2021, all children in Nursery and Reception will be expected to wear our new Early Years uniform.

 

Early Years (Nursery and Reception) UNIFORM FOR Boys/Girls

 

  • Emerald green school t-shirt (with logo* or plain)
  • Emerald green school jumper or hoodie (with logo*)
  • Plain black tracksuit bottoms or leggings (elasticated waist)
  • Black comfortable shoes (plimsolls/pumps/trainers)

 

*these items are available from the school office.

 

Elastic waistbands and velcro fastenings allow your child to be more independent and this helps to avoid some ‘incidents’ when using the toilet. 

 

Your child must wear footwear in which they can safely climb, run and pedal in. The children play outside every day and need to have safe shoes, so trainers/pumps with velcro fastenings are ideal.

Some parents also prefer to send in a pair of wellies to keep at school for exploring the garden when the weather has been wet and the ground is soft.

Your child should learn how to put on their own shoes/wellies independently.

 

Although your child will not need a separate PE kit, it would be useful to have a separate set of clothes (top, bottoms, pants and socks) in a PE bag in case they need to be changed.

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING and footwear ARE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
