We encourage all of our children to wear school uniform. We believe it is practical, more economical, prevents competition in fashion wear and gives the children a sense of belonging. This policy is well supported by our parents. The uniform consists of:
- Royal blue sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan
- White shirt/blouse
- Black or grey skirt/trousers
- Black shoes/trainers
In summer girls are allowed to wear blue and white checked or striped dresses.
For health reasons we ask that all children are provided with a PE kit. This should include a plain tee shirt (light blue for Key Stage 1 and House colours for Key Stage 2), shorts and a pair of trainers and plimsoles.
Blue sweatshirts, PE tee shirts in the required colours can be ordered online.
We request that children wear sensible shoes with low heels for safety reasons.
Its is advisable to clearly name all items of clothing which are brought to school. No responsibility is accepted for the safe-keeping of personal property.
The wearing of jewellery, apart from watches, is prohibited for safety reasons, including earrings and studs.
Children are not allowed to bring mobile phones to school.
Reading folders and PE bags are available to be purchased from the School Office.

Recycled Uniform Scheme
As part of our sustainability agenda we have decided to setup a Uniform Recycling Scheme where parents/carers have the opportunity to donate good condition items of clothing. There will be many parents who have children growing out of their uniforms quicker than they could wear them out. It is hoped that the scheme may be able to relieve the financial pressures for our community and a small fundraiser for our school too.
- Reducing landfill – it is estimated that 235 million items of clothing were sent to landfill by Britons last year
- Environmental – reduce harmful effects to the environment and contribute resources to our school community
- Social responsibility – helping clothing recycling to become as commonplace as paper and cardboard recycling
- Education – our children to become environmentally aware and taking responsibility for the effect it’s having on the planet.
We are asking parents to donate any of the following items which are in good condition (washed) to our school reception:
- Jumpers, cardigans, PE Kits, House T-Shirts, Fleeces and coats (with school logo)
- Grey skirts, dresses, pinafores, trousers
- Blue summer dresses.
Information about how parents/carers are able to obtain items donated will be circulated shortly.
Mr Little (parent) commended the scheme “What a great idea! Modern day culture of buying everything new and then throwing it away is destroying our planet so I am pleased that you are stepping up and doing your bit as a school”
