Uniform

What should my child wear to school?

We believe that a school uniform helps to achieve a sense of belonging and identity. Our uniform consists of:

  • grey trousers or shorts for boys;
  • plain grey skirt, pinafore dress or shorts for girls (lycra trousers are not acceptable);
  • white polo shirt or blouse;
  • optional for juniors ~shirt and tie;
  • school dark green sweatshirt or cardigan;
  • grey socks for boys; white / grey socks or grey tights for girls;
  • appropriate low heeled black shoes (trainers and boots are not permitted);
  • PE kit: black shorts, team t-shirt - please ask re: colour;
  • for outdoor PE: trainers and plain dark sweatpants;
  • optional extra: school hooded sweatshirt for PE;
  • school book bag, two sizes: infant & junior;
  • optional school backpack;
  • PE bag.

Alternative items for summer:

  • green and white gingham dresses;
  • formal, predominantly white sandals with white socks;
  • grey shorts;
  • a school cap.

Additional items for winter:

  • our school fleece is an optional extra; it can be useful as an extra layer for walking to school and at playtimes. 

P E kit:

Your child will need a pair of black plimsolls or light trainers for outdoor games, and a PE bag to keep the kit safe. Chidren can wear an optional maroon hooded uniform sports sweatshirt or their school sweatshirt for PE on cooler days.

All children should have full PE kits in school every day in their green kit-bags.

General information:

All school uniform including polo shirts, sweatshirts/cardigans, team PE t-shirts, ties, book bags, PE bags and other uniform items are available through Brenda's Schoolwear.

 

All clothing must be marked with your child’s name. We regularly have unmarked lost property handed in; please do come in to reception to re-claim any lost items as we have to dispose of these items on a termly basis.

Jewellery is not practical or safe for school wear, and so this must be kept to a minimum. Plain silver/gold stud earrings and a plain watch are acceptable, but earrings must be removed by the child or tape must be brought in to cover for PE lessons.

Smart and tidy hairstyles only, all long hair (past shoulder length) must be tied up and any hair accessories should be plain and of school uniform colour. No hair braids, colours or shaved patterns are allowed.

If your child brings personal items to school they are responsible for their safety.
