School Uniform

School Dress Code 

We expect our students to wear their uniform with pride and look smart at all times. Please ensure that it is fully labelled as soon as you buy it – we end up with a lot of lost property and would love to be able to return it. 

Items marked * are available embroidered with the school logo and may be ordered from School Trends, Maisies or Tesco. Once you get on to their website, type in our school to start the ordering process. Alternatively, you can buy unbranded items from any supermarket with a school section or an alternative supplier. 

Modifications to the school uniform are always considered for various reasons - these might include black jogging bottoms, top of differing materials and braces with trousers or skirts.  Religious and cultural items of clothing or jewellery are welcomed. 

Autumn / Winter 

  • White polo shirt*, or other plain white blouse or shirt (not t-shirts) 
  • Black ‘formal’ trousers (not skinny jeans or leggings), skirt, gym-slip knee-length culottes or ‘skorts’. 
  • Red sweatshirt* or sweatshirt-cardigan* embroidered with the school logo (optional)
  • Black, low-heeled shoes or boots  
  • Grey, white or black socks or grey/black/red tights 
  • School tie for Year 6 only - to be worn with a white shirt or blouse (these are available from the school office)

For outdoor wear only: 

Any colour and style school coat  
Black winter boots can be worn on a daily basis.  Wellies may be worn to and from school and in the playground but not inside the building

Spring / Summer 

As above, and also:

  • Black ‘formal’ shorts 
  • Low-heeled black or white sandals 
  • Summer red and white dresses - striped or gingham

P. E (Not needed for Foundation Stage Children)

  • White or red T-shirt* 
  • Black shorts 
  • Black or white plimsolls for indoor games
  • Tracksuit and trainers for outdoor use in cold weather 

Earrings

Only small stud earrings should be worn - not hoops. 

Children with pierced ears should tape these for PE if they are yet unable to remove the earrings. If the period of not removing earrings has passed (ie, 3 months max), then these should be taken out at home for PE days. We would prefer that children do not take them out at school simply because we worry about them being dropped or lost, but we will request this if needed.

*(Slogans, football club affiliations or ‘designer labels’ are not permitted)

Forest School

  • Wellies or sturdy boots
  • Waterproof jacket and trousers

We are always happy to recycle all unclaimed and unlabelled uniform items.

Families that receive Pupil Premium funding can use their annual school voucher to purchase school uniform.

Hairstyles

Whilst we enjoy seeing the children looking smart in their school uniforms, we do not have any restrictions on hairstyles. It is good to see the children express their personalities in their own unique way, this includes top knots, braids, short hair, long, hair and short mohicans. We do, however, ask our families to reserve hair colours for the holidays.  

In order for the children to see their work easily, it is best to have long hair tied back and this is a requirement for PE simply for health and safety reasons. Tied back hair also avoids head lice spreading!
