School uniform

The school has a uniform policy and we hope that all boys and girls will wear the clothing recommended. This policy is strongly supported by the parent/carers of the school. Our school sweatshirts and cardigans are in royal blue.

We do ask, for reasons of health and safety that the wearing of jewellery is kept to a minimum. A wristwatch and stud type earrings may be worn if you consider the child old enough to take responsibility for them (either of these must be removed or covered for PE).

In the interest of safety we request that children do not wear jewellery in school. If a child has pierced ears they should wear plain studs only.

Children may wear watches but must accept responsibility for looking after them.

Girls School Uniform:

  • White shirt or white / yellow / royal blue polo shirt
  • Royal blue sweatshirt, cardigan or jumper
  • Dark grey or black skirt or pinafore dress
  • Yellow or royal blue checked summer dress
  • Black or dark grey trousers (no fashion trousers such as leggings)

Boys School Uniform:

  • White shirt or white / yellow / royal blue polo shirt
  • Royal blue sweatshirt or jumper
  • Black or dark grey trousers
  • Black or dark grey knee-length shorts (may be worn in appropriate weather)

PE & Games:

All children must have a change of clothing with them for PE sessions, which includes both indoor and outdoor clothing and appropriate footwear.

Children must wear a white t-shirt and black or dark blue P.E. shorts (no logos). Children may need trainers for outdoor lessons and a tracksuit/jogging wear in either black or blue.

We ask that children bring P.E. kit with them on Monday and leave it in school all week. They can then take it home on a Friday for it to be washed and return it the following Monday.


Footwear:

Low-heeled shoes – suitable for active play. Shoes must not have heels or platforms.

White / grey socks or black tights.

Black shoes or trainers. Children should also have a pair of indoor shoes available in their PE bag (sandshoes are ideal).
