We believe that a school uniform is beneficial in creating a school identity and in helping to maintain high standards of appropriate dress. Our parents and carers strongly support the wearing of school uniform and we hope all new parents and carers will continue this support. It is very important that all items of clothing are named, as the school has no lost property facility since we expect to be able to hand back named found items straight away.
The school sweatshirts, cardigans and polo shirts bearing the school crest are available from Drury Sports and H & K Embroidery in town. We also have a small stock at the school office as well as PE kits, PE bags and school book bags.
Embroidered school uniform is also available from Tesco online. Click on this link to access their website. www.tesco.com/direct/driffield-junior-school/6414.school

All clothing should be named so any that is ‘lost’ can be quickly returned. Unnamed items ‘lost’ and not claimed will be disposed of at the end of every half term, or used within the school.
As a matter of school policy, we ask children not to wear any form of jewellery (rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, etc.) in school, for safety and security reasons. If a child has pierced ears, then sleepers or studs should be worn, but not loop-style earrings.
Regulations strongly recommend that no jewellery is worn for physical education lessons because of the danger of injury to the wearer and/or other pupils in the class. This has been adopted by the Governing Body as school policy. Children who normally wear earrings are asked not to wear them for school on days when they have physical education lessons. No child will be allowed to take part in physical education lessons wearing earrings.
Make-up and nail varnish should not be worn in school.
