Our School Uniform

We have specific rules regarding school uniform and personal belongings.

School Uniform

There is an expectation that children come to school dressed in full school uniform.

This includes:

  • School jumper or cardigan
  • Grey or black trousers, shorts or skirt
  • black shoes/ trainers

Reasons:  The overwhelming majority of parents, staff and children expressed their preference for a school uniform.  School uniform reinforces school identity, a sense of belonging and eliminates ‘brand’ fashion and stigma.

There is a large selection of second-hand school jumpers and cardigans in school, available free of charge. Please contact the school office to arrange to collect items.


Watches are the only items of jewellery which may be worn at school and these must be removed during P.E. and swimming lessons.  Teachers are not to assist children with the removal of jewellery. If children cannot remove it themselves it should be removed at home on the days the child does PE. Children are not permitted to wear any earrings.

Reasons:  Rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings etc. can turn a minor incident into a major accident if caught on apparatus or entangled in another child’s clothing or hair.

PE Kit

Due to the current pandemic, we are trying to reduce the number of items brought into school from home. Children are asked to wear their PE kit to school on their PE day.

Appropriate clothing must be worn for all PE activity:


  • T-shirt or vest
  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Trainers for outdoor
  • No jewellery

School tracksuits and hoodies are available to purchase from JD Fashions.

There is a high expectation that children bring their PE kit every time they have PE.  It is a vital part of their curriculum.

Personal Belongings

The school cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage to clothing or personal property.  Toys, games and sports equipment must not be brought to school (except on special occasions when the teacher gives permission).  Any money brought into school should be handed in as soon as possible and never left in trays, bags or coats.  Mobile phones are not to be used at all within school times.  Any mobile phones should be handed to the teacher on arrival and locked away in a cupboard.  The child will only be able to access the phone again at the end of the day. A mobile phone contract should be completed, your child’s class teacher will have a copy for you to complete.
Reasons:  Suitable toys, games and sports equipment are provided for the playground and indoor play.  Unsuitable equipment may present a risk to children and present the potential for theft.
