Uniform

Uniform

It is our policy that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos. We also believe it is important that certain activities are facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.

We provide a complete list of the items needed for children's school uniform on this page and in our school prospectus.

Below is a list of our school uniform garments. All clothing MUST be clearly marked with the child's name!

Aims

Our policy for the children’s school uniform is based on the belief that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the children with the school
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable and good value for money, by most parents
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind

Property Notice

The school cannot be held responsible for any personal property (e.g. watches) brought on to the school premises. The Governors' policy is that jewellery should not be worn at school.

If a child has pierced ears, studs may be worn but these should be removed or taped over by the child during PE/Games lessons. If you wish your child to have his/her ears pierced, this should be done at the beginning of the summer holidays. This will ensure that earrings can be removed for school without the risk of infection.

Cloakroom space is limited so no large bags at all please! Your child will need a school book bag to bring their reading book to and from school. These can be purchased from the school uniform supplier when the time comes.

PE / Sports Wear:

Black Pumps to be worn for indoor shoes.

Indoor PE is done in bare feet and the hall floor is specially treated for this. Please inform the school if your child is suffering from any type of foot infection then he/she may be excluded from barefoot work. Pupils should wear trainers for outdoor sessions. In cold weather the children should wear a complete change of outfit – plain navy/black tracksuits only please. PE kits should be brought in a drawstring bag; drawstring bags embroidered with the school logo are available from the National School wear shop.

For PE and games lessons children are expected to change into the kit listed below.
