We encourage all our children to wear the school's uniform. It is not only smart and practical, but gives the children a sense of belonging and of being important members of the school community.
The Government is asking school governing bodies to ensure that the uniform chosen is widely available in high street shops and other retail outlets, rather from an expensive sole supplier.
- Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with white polo shirt;
- Grey or black trousers/skirts;
- Blue and white summer dresses for girls;
- Black or white socks;
- Black shoes or black trainers – no boots or trainers of any other colour;
Royal blue is a colour that is easily accessible from retail outlets.
Our designated uniform supplier is MyClothing.com. Their School Embroidery Service supplies sweatshirts, polo shirts and fleeces with the embroidered school logo. These goods will be delivered direct to your home.
It is extremely important that you name all uniform items of clothing. As you can imagine, missing items without names are extremely difficult to find!
All children taking part in P.E./Games will need appropriate, clean P.E. clothing, which provides a freedom of movement and, when necessary, some protection from the weather. Our children come into school on P.E. days wearing their kit:
- White T shirt
- Loose-fitting black shorts (not cycling shorts)
- Black or white socks
- Black jogging bottoms (not leggings)
- Black sweatshirt for winter (no logos)
- Black or white trainers.
Children should wear their school sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan over their P.E. T shirt along with their shorts/tracksuit bottoms during the lessons which are not P.E. lessons then change into their P.E. sweatshirt/jumper for their P.E. lesson. Your child’s P.E day will be notified to you at the beginning of the year.
Jewellery is not suitable for school wear, but named watches may be worn (NOT smartwatches). Watches and FitBits will need to be removed for P.E. Children with pierced ears may wear one pair of plain small studs. However, during P.E. and swimming we require all children to remove their earrings for safety reasons. If this causes difficulty, when your child has P.E. or swimming, please ensure that your child does not wear earrings to school that day. If your child is unable to remove their ear-rings they will not be allowed to go swimming or take part in P.E. lessons, both of which form part of the statutory curriculum. To assist you, your child's class teacher will inform you of P.E. and swimming times. If you are planning to have your child’s ears pierced, we would recommend doing this at the start of the summer holidays to allow time for the ears to heal.
