Our School Uniform is important to us. It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life. It promotes harmony between different groups represented in the school, and it enhances security, assisting the school to identify individual pupils in order to maintain good order and spot intruders more easily.
It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform 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 school uniform in our school prospectus and on this website. A full copy of the uniform policy can be found on the key documents page.
Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.
We have a uniform shop open in school every Monday afternoon at the end of the school day.
Our school uniform can now be bought online through the Harris Sports shop! Please click here to be taken to their website.

Indoor PE Kits
Boys and girls should wear:

- trainers with a pair of socks
PE Kits should be kept in a named drawstring shoe bag. (Strong blue kit bags, with the school logo, are available for a small price, from the school).
Outdoor PE Kits should consist of plain dark tracksuits or royal blue tracksuit bottoms and a school jumper and the same PE t-shirt as above as well as socks and trainers. (No Football Kits or logos)
Parents should label all items of clothing clearly with their child’s name.
Jewellery and Fashion Items
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears. We expect the children to remove these objects during PE and games.
Children come to school to learn. We believe that fashion items are best kept for home, and for reasons such as health, safety and inclusion fashion accessories such as make-up, nail polish, hair gel and jewellery other than stud earrings should not be worn. Parents should also be aware that tattoos are not permitted.
The school does not permit children to have haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children. Long hair on both girls and boys, should be tied back neatly. This is not only for reasons of smartness, appearance and health and safety: Pupils’ faces should not be obscured as the teacher may not be able to judge their engagement with learning and to secure their participation in discussions and practical activities.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels in school, so we do not allow this. We do allow the children to wear smart trainers (ideally in a plain dark colour) as they spend a lot of time being active.
Non-Compliance with the School Uniform Policy
When joining our school we ask you to recognise that we are a 'school uniform' school and commit to providing a smart school uniform.
If children come in to school in inappropriate clothing (including non uniform or variations of the uniform) they will be spoken to by staff and may be provided with a spare uniform. If non- wearing of the uniform is ‘persistent’ then parents will be involved. Parents / children should be aware that some privileges / rewards are associated with wearing of the uniform. We are able to provide support and assistance in some situations.
