School Uniform

We believe that a school uniform gives a sense of belonging and pride.  Our agreed dress code is intended to be practical and comfortable for children.  School uniform is encouraged but not compulsory for pre-school children.


Items with the school logo are available to order from either:-


Please ensure that all garments and footwear are clearly labelled with your child’s name.



  • Pale blue blouse/shirt/polo shirt – preferably with the school logo

  • Grey skirt/pinafore/trousers (long or short)/culottes

  • Navy blue school sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan preferably with school logo

  • Navy blue school fleece with logo

  • Blue or yellow gingham summer dress

  • White/grey socks or grey tights

  • Shoes should be smart, black, flat, sensible school shoes (not trainers) which enclose the heal and toe area.  Girls' slip on shoes are not suitable as they can slip off when running in the playground.  Straps should be Velcro for children who cannot tie laces.

  • Boots are appropriate during inclement weather for outdoors with school shoes or pumps to change into for indoor wear.

  • Book bags or rucksacks (Early Years/Key Stage 1/Key Stage 2) can be purchased from either uniform supplier.


Children should be appropriately dressed for the weather. A suitable coat for outdoor playtime is required (no sports tops, denim or hoodies). During warmer weather children may wear a sunhat and a long lasting sun screen.

Children in Early Years require an outdoor set of waterproofs (separates not an all-in-one), a pair of wellington boots in a suitable bag to be kept in school and a spare set of clothes (including underwear and socks) in case of any accidents. 


Children are allocated to a house when they join the school and wear t-shirts in their house colour for PE. House colour PE t-shirts can be bought direct from school (from September for Reception new starters) and these are priced at £2.50 each.  Simply choose the size and colour you need in the Shop section of SchoolMoney, make your payment and the t-shirt will be sent home with your child. 


P.E. Kit (not Pre-School)

  • House team coloured T-shirt (available from the Shop section of SchoolMoney, in September for Reception new starters)

  • Navy blue shorts

  • Black pumps for indoor P.E.

  • Trainers for outdoor P.E. (Velcro fastenings for children who cannot yet tie laces)

  • Long navy blue tracksuit bottoms/leggings suitable for outdoor P.E.

  • Navy blue school sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan/fleece preferably with school logo can be worn over PE t-shirt for outdoor P.E.


       Swimming lesson requirements

  • Boys should wear swimming jammers or trunks rather than loose fitting shorts

  • Girls should wear a one-piece swimming costume rather than a bikini/tankini

  • Long hair must be tied back

  • No jewellery or earrings to be worn

       Children can still attend swimming lessons if they have a verruca – just cover with a plaster.


At the beginning of the academic year you will be informed of which days your child will be having P.E. and/or swimming lessons (if applicable).  Children should come into school on these days in their P.E. kit and will stay in this all day.


The wearing of jewellery is limited to small ear studs which must be removed (or covered with plasters if newly pierced) for P.E. activities in compliance with DfE regulations.  We ask that ear piercings are timed at the beginning of the summer holidays. 


We recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities.  Although extreme hair styles, accessories or colouring are not appropriate for school we are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone's ability to succeed.  We are excited to announce that we have adopted The Halo Code, the UK's first Black hair code.  No Black staff or students should have to change their natural or protective hairstyle in order to thrive at our school.  We hope that the Halo Code will move us one step closer to a world free from discrimination, where all Black members of our community have their identities fully recognised and celebrated.


Our school champions the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles.  We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.  We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.
