Little Ilford is a multicultural and uniform school; we are a non-religious school and it is expected that all students are correctly dressed.  It is compulsory for all students to wear the following uniform:

Students will keep the same year group colour throughout their time at the school, so there will be no need to buy a new tie or headscarf each year.

THIS IS A UNIFORM SCHOOL. THE WEARING OF FULL SCHOOL UNIFORM EVERY DAY IS ESSENTIAL
 

We strongly recommend that you place your order for the new uniform as soon as possible so that it will be ready in September.  If the blazer doesn’t fit your child in September, the uniform suppliers will exchange it for the correct size free of charge.

  • School jumpers may be worn beneath the new school blazer but it is optional
  • Black trainers are not acceptable as shoes and wearing them will result in behaviour points.
  • Students MUST NOT wear sporty tops/tracksuits/hoodies/sweatshirts, etc. as outdoor coats - these will be confiscated. 
  • Body-warmers are NOT to be worn instead of school jumpers.
  • During warm weather periods students are entitled to wear their uniform without jumpers, but must not wear other jackets or jumpers instead of their school jumper. Shirts must be tucked in and ties tied to the top.
  • Jewellery should not be worn in school.  The only exceptions are
  • Watches
  • Stud earings
  • Small sleepers
  • Religious pendants

Any other jewellery may be confiscated

All infringements of the uniform code will result in behaviour points accrued

 

Uniform is a high priority as regards our high expectations of our student community.

If a student does not have the correct shoes (for whatever reason – a note from the parents/carer must be provided in their diary and dated) the Pastoral team will provide plimsolls for the student/s to wear for that day. Students will NOT be allowed to wear their black trainers while they are waiting to buy their new shoes or get their school shoes repaired. If the student refuses to wear the school provided plimsolls/tie/jumper etc. then the student will have to spend the day in the Reflection room.

In the same way the school will provide a tie, which must be returned at the end of the day. Students NOT in the correct uniform will be sent to their Pastoral team and a behaviour point will be logged and parents will receive a phone call/text message.

If there are any financial concerns then parents/carers need to speak to the relevant Pastoral team.
