School Uniform

Important Covid-19 Operating Information From Pages

Purchase our uniform by clicking on a link below:






Our uniform is important in helping the children feel part of the school. Our school colours are red, white, grey and black:







Skirts, pinafores and trousers



Sweatshirts, pullovers, cardigans, jumpers


red with logo



grey or white

Polo shirts / shirts and blouses



Summer dresses


white and red


Children should wear black shoes or sandals (not boots). Open toed or sling-backed sandals are not safe to be worn within the school environment. Training shoes, while acceptable for sporting activities, should not be worn as normal footwear to and from school. Wellington boots should be clearly marked on each boot and a clothes peg bearing the name of the child should be brought into school to keep the boots together in the cloakroom. Your co-operation in this will help to minimise the problems caused by almost 400 plus pairs of similar Wellington boots which are in school on snowy days!


Like the vast majority of primary schools our cloakroom areas are very small. Bringing large sports' bags into school is unnecessary and such bags take up a large space on a peg which is possibly only a few centimetres away from the neighbour's peg. Bags on the floor in restricted areas such as corridors provide a hazard which has Health and Safety implications. Book bags are available from our uniform supplier, and these take up much less space. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are only allowed a Book Bag due to space. Thank you for your understanding.



Clothing Required for Physical Education: 


The clothing requirements for PE are as follows; each child needs a plain House colour round neck T-shirt (No logos or prints) and a pair of red shorts. The shorts should not ​be the modern baggy or overlong type as these can be dangerous on PE apparatus. Football shirts are not acceptable for PE. For indoor lessons your child will need trainers with non-marking soles. For all outdoor lessons your child will need another pair of trainers. For safety reasons we cannot allow a child to take part in outdoor PE wearing plimsolls or shoes. Parents will be informed of which House their child is in.


For children in Reception - they do not require a P.E Kit until Term 3 (After Christmas).   Please supply your child with the following items: coloured T-shirt (according to house colour), red shorts and a pair of plimsolls.


It is necessary to have some form of warmer clothing to go over shorts and T-shirts for the outdoor winter games sessions. Preferably this will be a plain tracksuit, but a sports sweatshirt is also acceptable. 


Lastly the whole kit can be kept safely together in a simple large cloth bag, clearly marked with the child's name, and fastened with a draw string. We cannot stress enough how important it is to have your entire child's PE clothing named.  


Long hair must be tied back at all times before your child can participate in P.E lessons; this is due to Health and Safety reasons.    


Jewellery is not to be worn in school unless for a religious purpose. In this case the school should have a letter from the parents on file. In those cases where a child's ears have been pierced, then small studs are worn and these should be removed for PE, games and swimming lessons. Children should not wear studs to school unless they are able to remove and replace them by themselves. If you wish to have your child's ears pierced, please note that it is best done at the start of the summer holiday, as the studs need to stay in the ear continuously for six weeks. In this way, the ears would be healed by September.

All clothing must be clearly named. We hold lost property in school, and if named, all items will be returned to the owner by our monitors (when time allows). Parents are welcome to come and have a rummage through our lost property at any time. Naming your child’s clothing will avoid the need for you to do this!
