School Uniform

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: 


P.E kit will continue to be worn for the entire day when your child has P.E.


P.E kit needs to be as follows for September 2021:

  • Navy blue or black Shorts.
  • Navy blue or black tracksuits (leggings are appropriate – navy blue/black)
  • Coloured T-shirt which matches your child’s House colour:



Bermelie (red)

Oaken Wood (green)

Kettle Bridge (blue)

St Margaret (yellow)


  • White soled trainers, so that they do not mark the school hall.   No plimsolls needed.   When P.E. is carried out in the hall, children will either do this in bare feet or in trainers


NB: No P.E. uniform should have logos or be of any other colour, except the colours mentioned above.   Thank you.   Inappropriate P.E. uniform will be challenged by the class teacher.


If any parents have spare P.E. uniform that is no longer required, please donate it to the school.   Thank you.
