Uniform - Primary Phase

Uniform Policy

Nishkam School pupils are ambassadors of the School. We believe our uniform fosters a sense of belonging, pride and identity. It sets high standards for pupils and makes an important contribution to a positive learning environment. We ask that parents support us with the uniform policy and ensure pupils come to school with smart, clean uniform on every day.

Articles of Faith

  • Articles of faith may be worn as specified by an appropriate religious authority.
  • A Kirpan may be worn under the uniform by Amritdhari (initiated) Sikhs only, with written permission from parents.

Jewellery

In the interests of safety, pupils should not wear jewellery as these can easily get caught. Articles of faith maybe worn; we will ask children to help us make a safe environment for all by respectfully asking them to cover articles of faith with protective cover during PE to prevent any risk of accident.

To reflect any professional learning environment, Boys are not permitted to wear earrings. Girls may wear simple stud earrings.

Pupils should not come to school wearing any of the following;

  • A loosely hanging patka; it should be tied neatly.
  • Loose hair. Keshadhari boys should tie hair at the top of the head and not at the back. It is encouraged that Keshadhari Sikh boys will wear a Dastaar from when they are able.
  • Skirts/pinafore other than the standard school uniform version. Skirts/pinafore above the knees.
  • Jeans or skinny trousers
  • Leggings (or similar).
  • Patterned tights; only plain grey tights with the school skirt will be permitted.
  • Flip flops or trainers.
  • Jewellery including bracelets, necklaces, wristbands, non-ear piercings. Stipulated articles of faith may be worn.
  • Earrings other than simple studs for female students, or multiple pairs of earrings.
  • Male students wearing earrings.
  • Acrylic nails, nail gels, nail colouring and varnish.
  • Hoodies, denim jackets, leather jackets or tracksuit tops worn as an outside jacket.
  • Extreme hairstyles (Mohawks, tramlines, shaved patterns, less than grade two, unnatural hair dye colours).

The uniform is compulsory to wear at all times on the journey to and from the school and during the school day. We would appreciate this is adhered to, any issues will be addressed accordingly.
