Leighton Middle School

School Uniform

Our pupils all wear the school’s uniform. This is smart and practical and gives the children a sense of belonging and of being important members of the school community. The only jewellery pupils may wear is a named watch and a single plain stud in the lobe if ears are pierced. Studs must be removed during PE. We would prefer for pupils not to wear studs as we consider them dangerous. No other piercing is permitted in school. If a child’s hairstyle is such that it is unsafe for particular activities, it must be tied back. No close cut hair, hair braids, patterns or designs are allowed. Natural hair colour only; dip-dyed hair is not permitted. No pupil may wear make-up of any kind, including nail varnish and false nails. 

Second hand uniform is available, please contact the school office.
