Uniform

  • Our pupils wear their uniform with pride.

    • Grey trousers/shorts or skirt /pinafore dress 
    • White shirt or blouse with red tie ( may be elasticated ) or white polo shirt 
    • Red sweatshirt or cardigan 
    • Optional red fleece 
    • Black Shoes (trainers are not acceptable).
    • During the Summer months girls may wear red checked dresses and sandals. 
  • P.E. Kit

    Uniform embroidered with the school logo can be purchased from two suppliers:

    School fleeces, tee-shirts, waterproof jackets, hats and bags are also available from both suppliers.

    Please remember to mark EVERY item of clothing with your child’s name and then we will be able to re-unite them with mislaid items. If another child takes your child’s jumper home by mistake then a named jumper is more likely to be returned.

    Jewellery

    Items of jewellery can cause accidents or a great deal of pain to a child therefore we request you do not allow your child to wear jewellery in school. Jewellery is not allowed during any kind of physical activity e.g. games, P.E., swimming. Before allowing your child to have their ears pierced please consider the problems this may cause in school. Earrings left in for P.E. need to be covered with sticking plasters. Watches may be worn but children must remember they are responsible for their own things. 

    Hairstyles

    Hair must be of natural colouring and in an appropriate style for school. We do not permit tram-lines etc. and prefer long hair to be tied-back/ plaited etc. (School will decide if a style is appropriate).

    • White T-shirt or polo shirt 
    • Red shorts 
    • Black pumps (elasticated for Busy Bees please) 
    • In cold weather grey or red tracksuits /jogging bottoms 
    • Trainers may be worn instead of pumps
    • Football boots and shin-pads may be worn when 
    • Swimming in years 3 to 6 – Costume/ trunks shorts not knee-length shorts; towel; cap (compulsory) Goggles may be worn. A little talc put in the cap at home helps your child to put their own cap on.
