Home-school agreement

Parents and carers are a child’s first educators. They are the adults who have taught their children how to walk, talk and dress themselves. At Someries Infant School, we believe that children will learn best if parents and carers know, understand and are in agreement with the aims of our school. This agreement is to help the school and parents and carers to work in partnership in order to support children’s learning.

Our uniform is an important part of our school identity and we expect parents to support our high expectations. If you have any difficulties in meeting any of our uniform requirements, please talk to us as we can often help families to resolve this type of issue.

All of the items displayed below can be purchased online using the pink 'Online Payments' tab on the left hand side of the screen.

Winter uniform

  • Grey or black trousers, tunic or skirt
  • White shirt, blouse or polo shirt
  • White, grey or black socks or tights
  • Red sweatshirt or cardigan containing our school logo
  • Black shoes

Summer uniform variations

  • Red and white gingham dress
  • Grey shorts

P.E. kit

  • Red T-shirt containing our school logo
  • Plain black shorts
  • Plain jogging bottoms (for outdoor lessons)
  • Plimsolls (or trainers for outdoor lessons)

All articles of clothing, including shoes, must be clearly labeled with your child’s name. It is important that shoes, especially plimsolls and trainers, are marked. If your child has lost something, please visit the School Office.


All children should wear black shoes that are strong, safe, practical and sensible. High-heeled shoes or boots are not acceptable or appropriate for school. Similarly, open-toed sandals are not appropriate as they leave feet unprotected.


Long hair must be tied back at all times. We do not permit extreme hairstyles, dyed, gelled, spiked hair or hair with patterns or lines shaved in.


No jewellery is to be worn in school, with the exception of small stud earrings (which must be removed for P.E. lessons). Hooped earrings and larger stud earrings can be very dangerous and are unsuitable and inappropriate for school, as are necklaces, rings and bracelets.
