An outline of our school uniform is below. We expect all pupils to come to school dressed smartly in the following clothes:
- School sweatshirt (emerald green with school logo), plain emerald green jersey or cardigan;
- White shirt, white polo shirt (with a collar) or blouse;
- Dark grey skirt or pinafore OR dark grey or black trousers or shorts OR green and white checked summer dresses;
- Sensible shoes or trainers in a dark colour, preferably black;
Please note shoes should be entirely in a dark colour, with no coloured laces, logos or other additions. If trainers are worn, these should be smart and appropriate for school. White trainers or shoes should not be worn.
- Summer sandals, which should be enclosed at the heel and toe;
- Plain white, grey or black socks or tights.
School jumpers are available to buy at the office. It is really helpful if you can ensure all items of clothing sent to school are clearly labelled – things inevitably go missing during the course of a normal week, and clearly named items of clothing can be easily returned to their owner.
Jewellery, except for a watch or single pair of stud earrings, should not be worn for health and safety reasons.
Our PE uniform consists of our green school PE T-shirt (available from the office in the full range of sizes), worn with dark shorts or jogging bottoms, depending on the PE activity being carried out and the weather. Hoodies or sweatshirts should be worn in the winter or colder weather to ensure this does not affect the ability of children to take part in these lessons. We ask that children wear trainers for PE, rather than plimsolls, as these provide far better support for the ankle. Class teachers will let you know PE days on our return in September. PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum, and we expect all pupils to play an active part. As such, any occasions where PE kits aren’t in school on previously communicated PE days will be followed up with a note home.
In addition, it is strongly recommended that any shoulder length hair is tied back. This is to try to help limit the spread of headlice between pupils, as well as ensuring hair is kept out of children’s faces as they are trying to work.
We are always on the look-out for any old, good quality uniform for our second-hand uniform shop – please think of us if your child is in year 6 and are leaving us. Items can be donated through your child’s class or the office.
Dates for our regular PTA second-hand uniform sales are included in the weekly newsletter.
