Uniform

We take pride in the appearance of the children in our school and we encourage them to wear school uniform.

We believe that a good, positive attitude to appearance promotes similar attitudes to other aspects of school life.

However we also recognise that purchasing school uniform can be expensive so we have worked hard both to minimise the number of badged items and to source these at the best possible price.

The school uniform comprises:

Years 1-6

  • Royal blue school sweatshirt or cardigan (badge optional)
  • White polo shirt (badge optional)
  • Grey skirt, pinafore dress, shorts or trousers
  • Grey or black socks or tights
  • Royal blue check dress (seasonal)
  • Optional school fleece and/or reversible showerproof jacket (badged)
  • Black school shoes

Reception ONLY

  • Wellington boots
  • White polo shirt (badge optional)
  • Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan (badge optional)
  • Dark grey or navy jogging bottoms or leggings
  • Black school shoes
  • Royal blue check dress (seasonal)

It is essential that children have a change of footwear and socks for PE lessons in case they end up wet and/or muddy.  We also recommend all children in Reception and KS1 have a school book bag.

PE Kit Years 1-6

Children require a drawstring or sports bag containing:

  • Light blue collarless T-shirt (unbadged)
  • Navy shorts
  • Plimsolls or trainers with spare socks (Reception – for Summer Term only)
  • Blue sweatshirt or fleece (KS2 only)
  • Blue or black jogging or tracksuit bottoms (KS2 only)
