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;

Uniform for autumn and spring Term

  • Grey trousers, shorts, skirt or tunic
  • Plain white long sleeved or short sleeved blouse or shirt
  • 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: elasticated ties in EYFS and KS1, real ties for KS2 (see below for tie tying videos and guides)
  • Branded book bag



Optional Summer Term uniform
