Wear your school uniform with pride. Looking smart leads to smart learning!

Parents/carers can find out more about the schools uniform requirements here.

You can order our school uniform from School Trends.

Why do we have a school uniform?

• To show that we belong to a special community
• To show others that we are proud of our school
• To help us focus on our learning rather than what everybody is wearing!

Parents and carers… please give us a head start on maintaining a purposeful learning environment by sticking to our uniform and dress code – it really does help!

Labelling clothes

Identification of lost items is extremely difficult when so many clothes are similar in size and appearance. Please ensure that ALL items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name.

Snowy weather

We always aim to open the school in all weathers! If the weather is snowy when you wake up in the morning, please send your child into school in suitable clothing for playing in the snow- school uniform need not be worn. Wellies, hats, gloves, scarves should be brought to school and a change of clothes too.


No jewellery except watches please.

We strongly discourage earrings, but if your child does wear earrings, these MUST be taken out on PE days as children are not permitted to wear them for PE.

Whilst we encourage children to value charities, we do not permit wrist bands as they can get caught and cause injury
