School Uniform


It is our belief that school uniform is an important aspect of the school’s ethos as it gives the children a sense of identity and a sense of belonging. Wearing the correct uniform gives clear and important messages to both the children and the local community regarding how we value our school.

Our school uniform is:

  • Grey trousers, shorts, skirt or tunic
  • Plain white long sleeved or short-sleeved blouse or shirt
  • Gingham school dress (summer term)
  • Grey or black socks or tights
  • School cardigan or sweatshirt (which must have the school logo)
  • Sturdy black shoes fastened with elastic, laces, buckles or Velcro which the child is able to take on and off independently.  Sandals, open footwear or shoes that do not protect the foot or can easily slip off are not allowed.
  • School tie for Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6)
  • Branded book bag

Hair adornments

  • Hairbands, hijabs, kippahs, turbans, topknots etc. are permitted in white, black or burgundy.
  • Bows, ribbons and other hair adornments should also be in black, white or burgundy and must be able to be managed independently


  • Jewellery is not allowed apart from:
    • Stud earrings in pierced ears 
    • Small objects of religious significance which have been specifically agreed by the headteacher


Normal school uniform is not permissible for PE/Games.  Each child must be equipped as outlined below.  PE Kit should be worn to school on the day each class undertakes PE. Please check with your class teacher for which day this is.
