Dovecote Green Primary School Uniform Code

The aim of the Dovecote Green Primary School Uniform Code is for pupils to present a neat appearance, while feeling comfortable in what they wear. All items of uniform, bags, towels etc. must be clearly marked with the owner’s name either in indelible pen or, preferably, by means of sewn-on name tapes. The school retains the right to indelibly name items which are not labeled.


The term ‘regulation footwear’ is defined as practical black shoes designed specifically with school wear in mind. The shoe should be fastened by Laces or Velcro or can be slip on. Ballet pumps or trainer type shoes should not be worn.

All uniform items will be available through the school. Timings for the Uniform Shop will be given nearer to the start of the term.

Dovecote Green Primary School offers traditional dining and traditional school meals. Children sit at dining tables with their teachers and friends and are taught and expected to display good table manners, talking quietly to their friends and enjoying the eating experience. The meals are hearty soups, seasonal salads, mouth watering mains and favorite puddings. Attention is paid to the presentation of the food. Children today are fussy eaters. Parents struggle to make their children eat a good balance of the right foods. In school, by providing tasty, high quality school meals and being very positive and encouraging about food, we are able to introduce children to foods that they would not normally try; they see their friends eating it and follow suit. The key is in the quality of food – source and preparation and the presentation of the food.

Parents are able to choose between having the school provide healthy lunches and snacks to their child at a nominal cost or to send a nutritious packed lunch and snack with them.

Policies & Handbooks

In addition to the relevant policies given below, the school has a comprehensive bank of policies. These are available on request.
