HOLYWELL SCHOOL CLOTHING
There is a recommended school uniform for wear by Holywell pupils, and parents are asked to support us in ensuring that their children wear it at school and when on school activities. The school colours are grey and royal blue, so clothes which conform to this combination are acceptable.
In detail, the recommended uniform is:
Grey or black trousers (no jeans).
Grey or a black skirt.
Pinafore or dress, either plain or blue/white check or blue/white stripes.
Holywell polo shirt in white or royal blue or a plain white shirt or blouse.
Long-sleeved cardigan - either with the Holywell logo or plain royal blue.
Holywell fleece (Optional) or Holywell coat (Optional)
Blue Holywell cap
Blue or white headscarf (when required)
GENERAL - Black school shoes are required (no trainers). Boots or wellingtons worn during inclement weather should be changed for school shoes on entering the school building. Plimsolls are not suitable for everyday wear and should be kept for PE.
If children wear shorts in the summer months, parents should ensure they comply with the school's recommended colours. (Lightweight beach/athletic shorts are not suitable for school wear).

PE kits must be available in school every day.

The governing body does not accept liability for the security of personal items on school premises. The wearing of jewellery and watches in school can cause all manner of problems for children and staff, and we do discourage it generally. The Health and Safety advice of the LA. is that "All jewellery and other adornments should be removed before participating in physical activities". If such removal is unacceptable for cultural, religious reasons or newly pierced, then items may be covered for the duration of the activity
