It is our school policy that children should attend school in uniform. We feel uniform is very important, as it adds to the sense of community and friendship amongst our children, and helps them to understand that school is a distinct environment for learning.
Our policy for school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
- helps children feel part of the community in which they learn;
- promotes a sense of pride and belonging in the school;
- is practical and smart;
- makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance and avoids pressure to purchase specific fashion items;
- is designed to be hard wearing and is considered by parents as good value for money;
- is designed with health and safety in mind.
For the convenience of parents with have made arrangements with Tescos and Brigade Uniform to supply tops with the school logo. You can order online by clicking the links:
Please note there is no requirement to purchase tops with logos, however this is an easy way to get good value school uniforms in your school's colours, complete with embroidery and to raise money for the school.
The school currently has a small stock on uniform on site. If you would like to know what items we have in stock please contact the office.

Pupils should have their PE kit on site throughout the school week and should not take part in PE in their school uniform.
In accordance with County Council guidelines, the wearing of jewellery is not recommended, as it can be dangerous both to the wearer and others; however, based on staff, parent and pupil feedback, small, plain studs will be permitted. In P.E, studs must either be removed or covered by plaster/tape provided from home. Make up and nail polish is not allowed. Children may wear watches, although they will be asked to remove these for swimming and PE.
The school collects an enormous amount of lost property each week and the majority of items have no name tag which makes it impossible for us to return items to classes. We appreciate that is frustrating for parents when a child comes home without items and with this is in mind we strongly encourage that every item of your child's uniform is clearly labeled with their full name. The school office will keep lost items for 2 weeks.
