School Uniform

We believe that a school uniform gives a sense of belonging and pride as well as being practical and comfortable for children.



  • Pale blue or white blouse/shirt/polo shirt (school logo optional)
  • Grey skirt/pinafore/trousers/culottes/shorts
  • Navy blue school sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan (school logo optional)
  • Blue or yellow gingham summer dress 
  • White/grey/black socks or tights
  • Shoes should be smart, black, flat and sensible and enclose the heal and toe area.  Slip-on shoes are not suitable as they can slip off when running in the playground.  Straps should be Velcro for children  who cannot yet tie laces.
  • Wellies or smart black boots are appropriate during inclement weather for outdoors with school shoes  or pumps to change into for indoor wear.
  • Book bags or rucksacks (Reception, Key Stage 1 and KEY Stage 2) can be purchased from either  uniform supplier.


Other items such as the navy blue fleece with logo are available.  Children should be appropriately dressed for the weather.  A suitable coat for outdoor playtime is required.  During warmer weather children may wear a sunhat and a long lasting sunscreen.  


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.


School uniform is encouraged but not compulsory for pre-school children.


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

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

PE Kit (not Pre-School)

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. 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. 


  • 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 PE
  • Trainers for outdoor PE (Velcro fastenings for children who cannot yet tie laces)
  • Long navy blue tracksuit bottoms/leggings suitable for outdoor PE
  • Navy blue school sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan/fleece preferably with school logo can be worn over PE t-shirt outdoor PE


Swimming lessons

  • Swimming jammers or trunks rather than loose fitting shorts. 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 PE and/or swimming lessons (if applicable).  Children should come into school on these days in their PE 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 PE 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. As 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 simply request that hair styles, accessories or colouring are sensible for school so that they do not distract from learning.


As a school 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.  

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.
