Information about our school uniform
Our Uniform Policy is intended to ensure that there are consistent and clear guidelines for school uniform, leading to a positive, shared identity and high expectations for presentation and appearance. Wearing a uniform also ensures that children are safely and appropriately dressed whilst at school.
Purchasing school uniform
Items of clothing with the school logo are available for order from the local provider Skoolkit and items without the logo can be bought from local supermarkets. Skoolkit was chosen for its quality products, competitive prices and service to parents. ASDA’s George range has also been identified as a good place to find school uniform items at a slightly cheaper price point without the school logo.
Please note that if you are eligible for Pupil Premium, you are entitled to £25 worth of school uniform per academic year which the school can purchase for you.

General guidance on appearance

- Make-up or nail varnish must not be worn at any time.
- Trainers should not be worn in school except for outdoor games. Children should be able to run around comfortably and safely at break-time in their shoes. Boots of any description should not be worn during the school day.
- Lunch boxes and school bags (preferably rucksacks) brought into school should be kept to a minimum size due to space restrictions in cloakroom areas. Branded designs are discouraged. School book bags are available from Skoolkit.
Children are encouraged to take responsibility for all personal items of clothing – valuables are brought into school at own risk. Lost property is held centrally and is displayed regularly for parents to claim. All items of clothing must be named.
Parental cooperation and support for the wearing of appropriate school uniform is essential. Should there be any concerns about adherence to the school uniform policy, the school will contact parents to discuss these further.
The school will inform parents about occasions when school uniform does not need to be worn. (eg non-uniform days, dressing up/theme days) and as to what should be worn on school visits.
