Students in Key Stage 1, 2, 3 and 4
Hats: Plain white or navy hats may be worn (out of doors) as protection against the sun. These are strongly advised for Key Stage 1 and 2 students and for all
students whenever they are outside. Please note: Key Stage 1 and Years 3, 4 and 5 students may wear their own clothes on their birthdays. Students who are leaving DES can also wear their own clothes on their last day at school.
Occasionally students are allowed to wear non-uniform clothes to school. These days are usually fund-raising occasions when the students make a small donation for the privilege of not wearing uniform. This donation goes to one of the charities that the school supports. Students may wear the clothes of their choice, but they should be suitable for a working school day. Normal, modest dress and behavior are expected. Make-up and jewelery are not allowed on non-uniform days. The following items of clothing are unacceptable on non-uniform days and students will be asked to change if they attend school in these clothes: - short dresses and skirts -shorts - tightly fitted clothing - “off shoulder” tops or tops with spaghetti straps - tops worn with tights or leggings (i.e. without trousers) - flip flops.P.E. and Swimming Kit P.E. kit consists of a whitepoloshirt, navy blue shorts, navy blue track suit bottoms (optional), white socks and trainers.

Students in Years 2 to 9 bring their P.E. kit to school with them and change before their PE lesson. On swimming days, children in Nursery to Year 2 wear their swimming costume under their uniform - they bring underwear in a bag along with a towel and flip-flops. If swimming is very late in the day, the class teacher may inform the children not to wear their swimming costumes to school; in which case changing will be done in the classroom under the direct supervision of the class teacher and assistant. Students must wear school uniform when they leave the School premises. Following after-school activities, children will be allowed to go home in their P.E. kit if they are appropriately dressed. If students have been swimming they must change back into school uniform.
