The Uniform Shop is run by parent volunteers and order forms are available from the front office. A price list of the items for sale and the Uniform Shop open times are on the order form. At present the uniform shop is open from 8.30 – 9.00 am Wednesdays.
The school colours are dark blue and light blue. All students attending Springfield are encouraged to follow the dress code as it:
- Gives your child a sense of belonging which in turn, gives a feeling of security
- Adds a positive tone to the school and assists in building school and team spirit
- Ensures students are appropriately dressed for school activities
- Encourages equality among students
- Reduces unnecessary competition among students for current fashion items or trends
- Prepares students for work in later life as many work places have dress and safety codes
- Has proven to be more economical for parents.
Any financial difficulty in obtaining uniform items or special modification of the uniform that are sought for religious or health reasons may be discussed with the Principal/Deputies or any member of the teaching staff.
No hat no play
Students are required to wear safe and practical footwear. Students are also expected to adhere to the SunSmart policy and must wear a broad brim or bucket hat for all outdoor activities.
Children who have long hair are asked to maintain its cleanliness and keep it tied back so that sight is not impeded and general tidiness is maintained.
Standards of personal cleanliness are regarded as the pupil’s own responsibility and children are asked to think of the comfort and wellbeing of others during their time at school.
Your child should not wear jewellery (especially dangling earrings) or nail polish and makeup to school. This is unnecessary and jewellery can be dangerous at times, particularly during daily physical education. Sleepers are permissible. As with other valuables the school can take no responsibility for lost items. Children will be asked to remove any unnecessary jewellery.
Please name all your child’s/children’s clothing. Pleas ask your child to bring home all extra clothing items each day. (e.g. coats, swimming gear). If property is lost, first check your child‘s classroom and then look in the Lost Property room at the back of the Music room. At the end of each week the clothing is sorted and the named items are returned to their owners. Any items without a name will then be recycled.
NB: Items of value such as jewellery, electronic games, musical instruments, are not covered by school insurance if lost or stolen on school property. Please do not allow your child to bring items of value to school.
