School Uniform


The standard of children’s dress at Dove First School is exceptionally high with all children wearing school uniform that can be purchased from the office.  Children are encouraged to wear black or grey trousers, skirts or shorts, a white polo shirt and a purple school sweatshirt or cardigan.  These should be worn with sensible black shoes.  Platforms and high heels are discouraged and are unsuitable for children running around in the playground.


All children participate in at least two PE lessons each week and need suitable clothing.  Shorts and T-shirts are available from the office and these can be brought to school in a PE bag at the beginning of each week along with a pair of plimsoles or trainers.


All clothes worn to school need to be clearly labelled with your child’s name; when children get changed for PE clothes can sometimes become mixed up with their friends and it is often difficult to match clothes to their owners unless they are clearly labelled.  In the interest of safety earrings should be restricted to a single stud in the lower lobe and these should be removed on the days when your child participates in PE.  At the beginning of each new school year you will be told by your child’s class teacher when certain things are taking place so that you can be fully prepared.
