School uniform is available from Chroma Sports. In addition, Friends offer good quality pre-loved uniform too (see below). Just email them: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe that children should take pride in their appearance as well as in the work that they produce whilst at school. We therefore have high expectations in terms of the uniform the children wear and their general appearance. We also anticipate a high level of cooperation from parents and carers whilst enforcing this policy.
Pupils should wear clothes as listed below:
- grey trousers / skirt / shorts / pinafore dress
- white shirt / blouse
- white or royal blue polo shirt
- royal blue sweatshirt / cardigan (preferably with the school logo on it)
- pale blue and white checked summer dress
- white, grey or black socks or tights must always be worn. Children must not come to school with bare feet.
School jumpers, sweatshirts and cardigans are available and can be ordered through Chroma Sport.
Pupils should wear black shoes (not trainers) which are low heeled/flat. It would be helpful if younger children wear shoes that they can fasten for themselves. During the warmer months, lightweight black shoes are acceptable, these must be worn with socks. Please do not send your child to school in open toed sandals.
All pupils in KS2 will take part in swimming lessons and will need a swimming costume and a towel.
Please make sure that all clothing worn in school is clearly marked with your child’s name. This is really important as lost items cannot be returned unless there is identification. Lost property is situated in the glass corridor which leads down to the Reception classroom.
Jewellery: Please do not send children to school wearing jewellery. Only small studs are acceptable and they must be removed before P.E. and swimming.
Hair: In the interests of safety hair longer than shoulder length will need tying back for P.E. It is a good idea to keep long hair tied back generally when in school, as pupils often perform practical tasks during lessons. The school expects all children to have tidy hair, the style of which should not impede their learning. Extreme hairstyles such as tram lines, mohicans and excessive use of hair gel will not be permitted.
Children should not wear nail varnish or temporary tattoos to school.
Sports Uniform List
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:
White t-shirt, navy blue shorts, white sports socks, navy sweatshirt, trainers (not plimsolls)
