Suzhou North America Preschool and Kindergarten has a uniform policy which all children and parents need to adhere to. We believe that our school uniform promotes a sense of pride in our school and solidarity between children. School uniforms are expected to fit the child appropriately, be cleaned on a regular basis, and cannot deviate from the style and color choices. Children are expected to present themselves in a neat, clean, uncontentious and professional manner at all times.
Sensible adherence to this policy is the responsibility of everyone in the school community.
Parents, guardians, carers, staff and pupils themselves all have a role to play in making it work.

School uniform policy
Children are expected to have a sufficient number of each of the compulsory uniform items so that items can be regularly laundered. A full uniform list for each of the different seasons is available online and in the joining information. Every item of clothing must be clearly marked with the child’s name.
All clothing must be neat and clean.
No frayed, torn or excessively worn items.
No non-uniform sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, etc.
Shirts should be tucked in at all times.
For children wearing ties, top buttons should be done up.
Skirts must be at least knee length; no alterations to skirt lengths are permitted.
Socks should be black or navy. Girls may wear ankle length socks or plain black opaque tights. Knee high socks are not permitted.
Black, leather shoes are to be worn by all children during the school day. Shoes must not have any large, ostentatious branding on them and must be kept clean and polished. For safety reasons, open-toed shoes and stiletto heels are not permitted.
For all sporting and performing arts activities, specific footwear for each discipline must be worn. For example; football boots for football and rugby, training shoes with non-marking soles for court sports and athletics, etc.
- Name tapes
Every item of clothing must be marked internally with the child’s name and year group, without which clothes cannot be identified. Visible naming or embroidery on any uniform item is not permitted. Footwear should also be marked.
The only acceptable forms of jewellery may include one or more of the following:
A single set of earrings, these being plain studs or sleepers worn in the lower ear lobes.
A discreet necklace or chain that must be tucked inside the school shirt and not visible.
All jewellery is to be removed by pupils before playing sport and for practical PE lessons. Children may also be directed to remove jewellery before other lessons and activities such as science experiments, drama rehearsals or when working in the art and design studios.
Tattoos, body piercings, stickers, message buttons, etc. are not acceptable at school.
Make-up that is noticeable is not permitted.
Requirements in respect of jewellery and make-up apply to both boys and girls.
