Uniform & Equipment
The KHS uniform list is attached below.
PE Kit Guidance - Autumn term 2020
On days when students have PE lessons they should come to school in their PE kit. Should students be unable to participate in PE, for whatever reason, it is still expected they attend school in PE kit to take part in the lesson in a non-active way.
All PE kit must be Kingstone branded, any uniform that does not meet this standard will need to be removed or changed for Kingstone items and should it reappear then it will be confiscated.
This mainly includes hoodies and shorts, and no outside sports clubs should be worn, regardless of the colour of the item.
If your child has tour kit, this can be worn, but please try and use this as a last resort and use your main school PE uniform where possible.
Socks must be worn and these must be navy. Although some students are doing athletics, trainer socks can only be worn in the summer term and are not be permitted for this term.
Leggings can be worn, as long as they are plain navy. We are currently in the process of adding personalised Kingstone High School leggings to the uniform list with our supplier. Once these come into circulation only these leggings will be permitted in lesson. Black leggings are not acceptable.
Some students will require outdoor footwear for the field when on topics such as rugby and football. Boots must be worn for these lessons: trainers will not suffice due to how boggy the field can get and we do not want students walking the mud around the school site.
If students arrive to school or to their PE lessons with incorrect uniform then spare clean kit will be issued to them by the PE staff. This is non-negotiable.
Please can we ask that jewellery and watches are removed, hair is tied up and inhalers/ epipens, if carried, are handed in to teachers at the start of lessons.
We are aware that winter months are on the way and we are looking to support students by adding some further options to the uniform list for PE. Again, these are not compulsory items but will be optional and should a child wish to wear this item, it must be Kingstone High School branded in line with the school policy.
Finally, should there be any issues with any of the above that has not already been addressed this term, then please feel free to contact me directly via email. Mr Dan Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org
Student Planners and Required Equipment
Each student will be provided with a student planner in which they will glue their timetable. The students also use the planner to record their homework and key assessments and targets for improvement.
We ask parents to check and sign the planner regularly to view homework set and encourage their child to progress. Parents can also use the planner to communicate with school. Your child’s planner will be checked by their Personal Tutor during form time
Students are expected to come fully equipped with their planner, a reading book and appropriate equipment for each day’s lessons. Access to an English dictionary at home is essential, and Collins Easy Learner French Dictionary is strongly recommended to support homework and class activities. All students must be equipped with a pencil case containing the following equipment:
- 2 writing pens either blue or black ink ( KS4 need black pens only for all exams)
- 1 purple pen
- HB pencil
- 2B sketching pencil
- 12 colouring pencils
- Highlighter pen
- Ruler, rubber and pencil sharpener
- Calculator, Compass, protractor
- Glue stick
- USB stick
- Multimedia headset (Earphones)
- Reading book
Students should bring a named water bottle that they can refill during the day from one of our water coolers.
