It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. Most of the uniform can be purchased at numerous retail outlets around the town. The sweatshirt is available for sale, along with book bags, P.E. kit bags and sunhats, from Blueprint Leisure who are based in Hailsham. These all bear the school logo. Parents are able to place orders on-line, by post or collect from Blueprint Leisure direct. These items can be ordered via our school website (www.thehaven.e-sussex.sch.uk) by following link below.
We attach great importance to the appearance of our pupils, and their standard of dress. We hope the children will gain a sense of belonging to the school community by wearing the uniform. For these reasons, we ask that children and parents ensure that it is worn smartly and with pride. To support parents in purchasing the correct school uniform we have a display of the boy’s and girl’s uniform in our main entrance area.

Pupils should wear plain navy shorts and a white tee-shirt. Black plimsolls or trainers (not black soled) must be worn. For safety reasons, children who do not have their kit will not be able to participate in the lesson. Navy jogging trousers and navy fleece zipped tops may be worn for outsides P.E.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears, and a small wrist watch. We ask the children to remove these objects before PE and games.
For health and safety issues, children with hair longer than shoulder length should wear it tied back. Only navy, school green or hair coloured hair accessories such as scrunchies or ribbons are permitted. We also request that pupils have hairstyles that are appropriate for school. Exaggerated hairstyles such as shaved patterns, tramlines, close shave and Mohican cuts are not permitted.
The following are not permitted
Shoes with high heels (>5 cm), backless, trainers (except for PE), or other informal styles. (No canvas or visibly badged footwear)
