We are very proud of the appearance of our pupils. Our uniform is a symbol of belonging to Christchurch Junior School and underlines the sense of community we seek to develop. We see it as a clear statement of identity both inside school and when we are on educational visits away from site. The children should take pride in their appearance and present a positive image for our school. We ask for your support in this matter.
Children of parents in receipt of certain benefits may be entitled to a clothing grant in the form of a voucher which may be redeemed at Stevensons in Southbourne. Please contact the school office in the first instance.
Our school uniform is available from the following outlets:

We expect pupils to wear sensible, school shoes and not trainers in school. We also ask for your support in controlling the size of heel as a matter of health and safety. We do not allow children to wear boots, sling back or mule type shoes which do not support the ankle. Shoes should be worn with grey or white socks (or grey tights in colder weather). Trainers are not allowed (except for use in the playground at break times and lunch times only).
We do not allow the wearing of jewellery in school unless a Medic Alert / SOS Talisman is needed. Children whose ears are pierced may wear plain studs if necessary but we cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage of jewellery brought to school. During PE, earrings will need to be removed or taped for health and safety reasons. Children may wear a watch but must be responsible for it. All other forms of jewellery are not allowed for reasons of safety. We do not allow children to wear make-up or nail varnish to school.
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children. We would greatly appreciate the support of parents and carers with this issue. Long hair should always be tied back. These guidelines apply to both boys and girls.
With over 500 children wearing similar items of clothing, it is vital that all schoolwear is clearly marked with the child’s name. We do accumulate large amounts of unclaimed, unmarked clothing in lost property. We request that all garments are named using woven name tapes, iron-on labels or a permanent laundry marker so that ‘lost’ items can be returned to their owners. Any unnamed and ‘lost’ items are placed in our lost property box and anyone is welcome to view this box when items have been mislaid. The school cannot accept responsibility for the replacement of lost items of clothing or personal belongings.
