The school has a uniform and ALL children are encouraged to wear it. The uniform comprises of a red sweatshirt or cardigan and grey skirt or trousers.
Red sweatshirts with the school logo are available for purchase from Tesco online - their webpage is https://www.tesco.com/direct/ues/ - drop down box to find Ripponden School. White polo shirts with the school logo, book bags and pump bags are also available.
Uniform bought from Tesco can accrue Clubcard points and for a nominal fee can be delivered to home or store. In addition, school earns cash back on any embroidered items purchased.
PE kit is black shorts and a red logoed t shirt (also available on Tesco website). We ask that a pair of plimsolls with non-marking soles be provided. A full change of clothing is required for outdoor Games. We do ask that you also supply a suitable bag and that your child's belongings are clearly named.
Our aim is to make the child associate positively with the school and be aware of and take pride in their appearance. We do ask that ALL items of clothing are clearly marked with your child's name.We have a lost property box but through necessity, the contents are disposed of at the end of each school term.
As we do take pride in our appearance - we ask that all children adhere to our policies with regards to jewelry and make-up. The only jewelry that is permitted is a small, plain wristwatch for those children able to tell the time and a pair of stud earrings. No other jewelry should be worn. This includes bands and bracelets. Earrings must be taken out (by the children) or taped up for PE and games. Children should not wear make-up of any form. This includes nail varnish.
Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring that our children look smart and are ready to learn.
