Stake holder consultations have been held to review the Evergreen School Uniform. We had a tremendous response from parents with an overwhelming majority responding with similar feedback. The feedback has been analysed and the new uniform will be as follows:
Roots & Branches Curriculum (ages 4-15)
- Grey or black tracksuit bottoms, trousers or skirt
- Green (or white) polo shirt
- Green jumper or sweatshirt
- Green summer dress
- Waterproof jacket & trousers
- Green cap or warm hat
- Black or grey trainers or shoes
The uniform is a recommendation and not compulsory. Our priority is that every pupil at Evergreen School feels safe, happy and comfortable and able to learn skills for independence. Logo on clothing is preferred but optional.
Your child/young person will also need appropriate sports clothing according to the activities they are accessing in school e.g. swimming items / gym wear
**Your child/young person can continue to wear the old school uniform until it needs replacing**
Leaves Curriculum (age 16-19)
Older students do not need to wear school uniform. Instead, post-16 students will need to consider what is suitable clothing according to their personalised curriculum. We encourage students in leaves curriculum stage to develop the skills to identify and wear appropriate clothes for the weather and tasks they are engaging in at school that day.
We also encourage them to develop the skills to decide upon appropriate clothing that will be respectful and comfortable to learn in.
Students personalised timetable will be a range of activities which could include: serving/cleaning in Evergreen Community Book Café, decorating or upcycling in Evergreen Workshop, marketing and displaying items in Evergreen Enterprise Shop, caring for the animals, planting and gardening in the horticulture area or partaking in community sports and recreation.
Embroidered uniform is available to purchase online at https:// myclothing.com/ueslink/9295.school?t=1619014744619
Please note that although the address is Deansway, the uniform is applicable for both sites. The logo displaying on the uniform is a sample logo and you will receive the Evergreen School logo on uniform ordered.
Please label all items of clothing with your child/young person’s name to avoid confusion, especially coats and shoes. This will ensure that items are easily found and returned to you if there are any mix-ups. Not all children/young people will recognise their own belongings, so please help us to manage this.
Thank you for feedback and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office.
