The school believes that the wearing of school uniform promotes a positive attitude, a sense of community and belonging to the school and a suitable image in the eyes of the wider community. We place great emphasis on improving on our best and that combines with looking  our best. We want pupils to be proud of wearing school uniform.

School uniform at Chisenhale, which should ALL be named, consists of:

  • White shirt/white or navy polo shirt
  • Navy or black trousers or skirt or a blue chequered summer dress
  • Chisenhale School jumper or a plain navy jumper
  • Sensible school shoes or trainers

Due to health and safety reasons, jewellery should not be worn in school. However, there are two exceptions:

  • small stud earrings, for newly pierced ears, which must be covered up during PE/games sessions
  • jewellery may be worn in exceptional circumstances where items have religious or cultural significance or for medical reasons. Parents must discuss this with the headteacher as an individual case.

Children must have a change of clothing in school for PE/games lessons, which should all be named and kept in a separate bag. The school kit consists of:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms
  • Plimsolls or trainers

PE lessons occur on a regular basis, and we advise parents to ensure their children bring kits in at the beginning of the week and take them home at the weekend/holidays for washing.

If a child forgets their PE kit, the school will provide them with a spare PE kit so they are still able to take part in the lesson.

SWIMMING: KS2 will take part in swimming lessons during the summer term Please ensure your child is provided with:

  • tight fitting swimming costume/trunks (no baggy shorts)
  • swimming hat
  • towel

The swimming uniform is set by the Olympic Park swimming pool and they WILL NOT allow children to swim if they do not have the correct kit.
