What should my child wear to school?
Uniform cannot be made compulsory for primary age children, but it is strongly preferred. We ask parents to make every effort to send their child in the uniform listed below. When children join Nant Celyn parents have agreed to follow our school policies including uniform and therefore children who are not wearing uniform will be given a reminder letter and if it continues school uniform will be given to the child to wear during the school day.
We feel it helps children feel part of the school community and prevents discrimination.
With over 460 pupils in our school, occasionally items will be mislaid. Junior children / parents of infant children are able to look in the lost property box to recover lost property but this is a difficult task if the pupil's name is not on each item of clothing.
Every term all lost property will be displayed for parents to see and if not claimed will be sent to local charity shops or recycled.
Our main supplier is Pretty Miss in Cwmbran – 01633 484408, however you can now order our uniform from 'Tesco Uniform Embroidery Service'.

P.E. forms part of the National Curriculum. It is also very enjoyable and is important to your child’s health. Therefore children cannot be excused from P.E without a doctor’s note.
Please place P.E kit in a nylon gym bag or carrier with your CHILD’s name on it. It can be left on their peg and just taken home for washing.

For their own safety, children are only allowed to wear one stud in the lobe of each ear. If studs cannot be taken out on P.E days, they must be covered during P.E lessons with plasters. Plasters must be provided by parents and either put on by parents before coming to school or by the child before the lesson. Apart from a watch, no other jewellery is allowed.
