At King's Sutton Primary Academy children are expected to be suitably dressed for school activities. Therefore a uniform is worn to encourage a positive working atmosphere and to ensure that all children are equal.
Our children are encouraged to wear grey skirts, pinafores or trousers, white shirts or polo shirts, sensible black school shoes (not fashion shoes or boots) and a burgundy red cardigan or sweatshirt with the school logo on it. During the Summer terms boys and girls can opt to wear white polo shirts and charcoal grey shorts and many girls wear red and white gingham dresses in warmer weather. Uniform can be purchased direct from our current supplier; Sew Sublime Ltd who are located at 2c Bridge Street, Banbury (behind Kwik Fit) 01295 270693 . Alternatively it can be ordered online and delivered to the school free of charge please click here to visit Sew Sublime's website.
NO jewellery, other than watches and small flat stud earrings, may be worn at school, and these MUST be removed or surgically taped up for all Physical Education lessons. Please Note: Children must be able to do this by themselves.
NO make up, nail varnish or temporary tattoos or hair colours are permitted during school hours.
For PE lessons children need a close-fitting tee shirt, preferably, the school PE shirt and black shorts, and for most lessons perform barefooted. Trainers or plimsolls may be worn for outdoor games, but not for hall lessons. Tracksuits may be worn for outdoor games (black preferably) and for swimming lessons children need a one piece costume or trunks (Please Note: Trunks should be of the tight fitting variety e.g. speedos and not loose Bermuda style shorts), towel and a cap which are obtainable from school office for the price of 60p. A drawstring bag to keep PE clothing in is also needed and can be ordered through Sew Sublime. Kit should always be brought to school on Monday and taken home every Friday to be washed.

Second Hand Uniform
When uniform is found, if named it is returned to its owner. If it is un-named it is placed on the trolley next to the girls cloakroom. Any items not claimed by the end of each term are then laundered and resold. There is a second-hand ‘shop’ for school clothing, all enquiries to the school office please.
Money & Mobile Phones
It should not be necessary for children to have large amounts of money at school. However, if they need to bring money for lunches, uniform, photos or a trip or similar event, it should be brought in a named envelope with the amount, activity/trip and child’s year group on it, and given straight in to the school office. Should the office be unattended when you visit, please use the secure yellow box situated next to the pigeon holes for your convenience. Please do not leave money on Mrs Ward’s desk - ‘lock it, don’t lose it!’
Please Note: ‘Junk’ envelopes are always available should you need one and are located just above the yellow box. Thank you.
In the event that mobile phones need to be brought to school, they should be handed in to Mrs Ward or Mr Peters at the beginning of the day and collected at the end of school.
Any money, watches etc. found on the premises are taken to the school office, and unclaimed cash is given to charity.
Any un-named items are placed on the trolley near the girls cloakroom and parents/carers are welcome to search these items for any they may be missing. Please Note: Any property unclaimed at the end of a term will be disposed of responsibly.
