It is the policy at Ysgol Comins Coch that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a School-Organised Event outside of normal school hours.
Aims and objectives
Our policy on School Uniform is based on the notion that School Uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in being a member of Ysgol Comins Coch;
- engenders a sense of community and belonging towards our school;
- is both practical and smart;
- identifies the children with Ysgol Comins Coch;
- prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
- makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
- is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
- is designed with Health and Safety in mind.
Our standard uniform code & requirement
Ysgol Comins Coch has a standard school uniform, and the school asks that all parents encourage their children to stick to this accepted uniform whenever and wherever possible.
Boys & Girls: Yellow polo shirt, Royal blue sweatshirt.
Standard PE Clothing
In the interest of health and hygiene, all children should bring a change of clothes for P.E which should be kept in school all week.
This should include:
- a pair of plimsolls
- a T-shirt a pair of shorts
- a band to tie up long hair
One-Piece Swimming Costume (Girls), Swimming Trunks (Boys), and a Towel.
- All Ysgol Comins Coch pupils are encouraged to look after their own clothes and to treat them properly when getting changed.
- All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name.
On Health and Safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery at Ysgol Comins Coch. The only exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears. Watches are permitted but are worn at the pupil’s own risk.
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. We require all children to wear appropriate footwear.
The Role of Parents
We believe that most parents want to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the tasks we ask parents to undertake is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.
The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the School Uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.
