Uniform

Our school uniform instills pride, supports positive behaviour and discipline and encourages identity with, and support for our school ethos.  It ensures all pupils feel welcome and it protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way, nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils.

 The following uniform should be worn at all times:

 

 Boys   Girls
  • School trousers/shorts (dark grey/black)
 
  •  School skirt/trousers/pinafore (dark grey)
  • White polo shirt
 
  • White polo shirt
  • School jumper
 
  • School jumper/cardigan
  • Black school shoes (no sports logo)
 
  • Black school shoes (no sports logo)
  • Black/grey socks
 
  • White/grey socks or grey tights
   
  • During the summer months, girls may choose to wear a purple and white checked dress and white shoes

 

No training shoes are allowed nor any shoe bearing a sports logo as they will be deemed trainers.  If children are wearing boots to come to school then they must change into school shoes when they arrive. Only reading folder bags should be brought into school daily (no shoulder bags or rucksacks) as these fit neatly into the children's trays and leave the cloakroom less cluttered.

Long hair should be tied back with a dark hair grip and any hair bands should also be in a dark colour, with no large flowers or other accessories. No extreme hairstyles are allowed including mohicans, tramlines or shaved shapes.

No jewellery is permitted and only in recently pierced ears can studs be worn.  A letter should be sent into school detailing when the earrings will be removed. On such occasions we would expect parents to provide enough plasters in order that the earrings can be covered during the twice weekly PE activities.

The following PE kit in a draw string labelled bag should be available in school at all times: 

 

Indoor   Outdoor
  • House t-shirt
 
  • House t-shirt
  • Black shorts
 
  • Black tracksuit
  • Black elasticated pumps
 
  • Trainers

 

 Some items of the school uniform can be purchased from our supplier via their website:  www.touchline-embroidery.co.uk.  Please contact the school office for our school password to get started.

Alternatively, download an order form and hand it in at the school office.

 

Please note that the school operates a uniform swap-shop. This means that when your child grows out of their uniform you may pop into school and change it for a larger size. We rely on our parents donating uniform that their children have outgrown and encourage all parents to make use of this money saving provision. If you have no clothing to donate then you're still welcome to take items and leave a small monetary donation.

Ask at the office to see Mrs Mills, our Pastoral Manager or watch our for our coffee mornings when all the donated uniform will be available for people to browse.
