The Uniform


As many of the parental community are now aware the school has changed the way it sells and distributes school uniform to our school community.

We now offer parents and carers an online service via our website.  The online service offers both the school and parents/carers a more efficient service. The new service offers parents and carers the opportunity to pay for uniforms by debit and credit card and once ordered, these will be delivered into school. They will be individually wrapped for each child and ready to collect at the welfare room between 8.45 and 9.00 am and between 3.15 and 3.45 pm.

There is normally a cut-off date for orders each month and all deliveries will be made 14 to 21 days after this date. To aid continuity the School will continue to use the 11th of the month as the cut-off date. School Trends, the company we use for school uniforms, have told us they don’t deliver more than once a month unless there is an order with six or more items in it. This is for cost reasons. This means if parents/carers order shortly after the uniform cut-off date the wait could be up to 6 weeks. In order to counter this the medical room staff will check the collated order list on a weekly basis and if there are six or more orders then these will be released.

The new system went live on our website on 5th July 2013. The school trends website is http://www.schooltrendsthecage.co.uk/scripts/cgiip.exe/WService=SchoolT/index.htm

If you do not have access to a computer or you need help using one please arrange an appointment with our Parent Support Advisor Miss Rodriguez and she will help you with the ordering process.

There you will be able to purchase:
* school sweatshirts
* school tee-shirts
* school cardigans
* school fleeces

To be “in uniform”, a child should wear these with grey skirts or trousers.  Children should wear black shoes – no trainers.

Please make sure that your child wears suitable footwear for school.  Slip-on shoes, strap sandals or shoes with smooth soles may all cause accidents.

PE KIT

All the children will need a PE kit for school. The school colours are blue and white.

Reception: shorts and white tee-shirt (plimsolls for the summer term)

Years 1, 2 and 3:  plimsolls, shorts and white tee-shirt (in winter a track suit may be worn for outdoor activities)

Years 4, 5 and 6: plimsolls or trainers, shorts and a white tee-shirt (in winter a track suit may be worn for outdoor activities)

If parents want their child to wear different clothes for PE, they are asked to send a note to the class teacher.

LOST PROPERTY

Lost property is kept next to the Medical room.  At the end of each term we dispose of unclaimed items.

JEWELLERY

For reasons of Health and Safety children may not wear jewellery at school.  However we do allow children with pierced ears to wear small stud earrings.  Ringed sleepers are not permitted because the ear lobe could be easily ripped.

Certain items of religious jewellery may be worn but only with permission of the headteacher.
Rings may not be worn under any circumstances.

The Sunflower Fund


We aim for Southfield to provide a happy, nurturing community which inspires children to learn and to be their best. To do this there are two main areas we would like to improve: the quality of the learning materials that are on offer to our children and the environment in which they learn. The funds we have can take us so far, but we believe if we could generate additional financial support it could benefit the school significantly.

After discussion between the Governing Body and our Headteacher, The School agreed this is an opportunity we would like to try. Therefore, to help achieve this we are asking for your support in making a voluntary financial contribution to a new ‘Sunflower Fund’.

If you would like to support the ‘Sunflower Fund’ you can do so by logging into your ParentMail account and going to the “payments” area where you will find an option to pay in installments of £5, or more if you choose (see box titled custom installment), or a one off payment of £60 per year.

Alternatively, you can set up a standing order with your bank. Please pay to the school account using reference “Sunflower”.
(Southfield Primary School, NatWest Bank Ealing, Sort code: 60-07-10, Account: 03715566).

We will also gladly accept cheques handed in at the front office.

The Governors propose reporting back to you each term on the funds that have been generated and how they have been spent.
