Uniforms

In accordance with DfE guidelines, we believe that our school uniform can instil a sense of pride in our school among our pupils and will support positive behaviour. We have taken steps to ensure that our uniform is affordable and is available to all families. In cases of financial difficulty, assistance may be available

You will need to register and create your own username and password and then you are ready to order. Sample garments are available in school to check sizing. Items can be ordered for delivery to your home or to school.

All other items of school uniform are widely available from department stores and supermarkets.

Shoes—all children should wear black school shoes – not boots or trainers - and should have a separate pair of black plimsolls or black soft shoes to wear inside. For health and safety reasons, open-toed sandals are not acceptable.

Outdoor Play—you may wish to provide your child with a pair of tracksuit bottoms to wear over their uniform at playtimes, particularly in winter, when the playground and field can be wet and/or muddy.

Bags—Pupils will need a book bag, shoe bag and a bag to hold PE kit—all available from Price and Buckland. As space in the classrooms is very limited, we ask that no large bags or backpacks be brought into school.

 Jewellery—Children should not wear jewellery in school. This includes everything except watches. If pupils have pierced ears they may wear small discreet sleepers or studs. If they are unable to remove these themselves, they must be covered over for PE and swimming lessons.

 Make up – Make up and nail varnish are not acceptable in school.

 Hair—Long hair should be tied back. Hair ornaments should be discreet and be in school colours.
