PE kit should be worn to school on the day of PE lessons. Please see your class brochure for this information or ask your child’s teacher.


These may be worn for religious reasons but must be in school colours – red, grey, black or white


We recommend that long hair (shoulder length or longer) be tied back. Headbands or hair bobbles should be plain. Elaborate hair ties and bands are not used as it can be distracting for other children who are sat behind children who are wearing these especially when on the carpet and in assembly. 


One plain set of gold or silver stud earrings can be worn to school but must be removed or covered for PE lessons. Children are also encouraged to wear a watch (with no sound effects, cameras or games). No other jewellery is allowed due to health and safety, this includes charity bands.

Please can we ask that every item of school uniform is named including wellingtons, PE trainers and school shoes.

Aims and objectives

Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in our school;
  • helps to create a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • supports our commitment to inclusion;
  • prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting in class;
  • is practical, smart and designed with health and safety in mind;
  • is affordable;


We expect all pupils to comply with this uniform policy, which will be monitored. We will work with any family not meeting the policy to help overcome any barriers.

If you require any special adjustments to the school uniform for an individual child please contact the Headteacher or Inclusion Manager via the school office.

The school has a supply of second-hand uniform. If parents/carers are struggling to fund the uniform, we can often support them with uniforms, shoes, coats and outdoor learning clothes. Please contact the school office or headteacher in confidence.

How to Buy

Sweatshirts and Cardigans with our school logo can be bought  from a supplier called MAPAC at:
