School Uniform

Governors, the Senior Leadership team and the School Council feel that it is an important part of school life for all children to wear the correct school uniform every day as it gives a greater sense of school community and belonging. Listed below are the current usual expectations in relation to school uniform. However, during the academic year 2020/2021, due to the increase in P.E and the restrictions linked to Covid-19 pupils have been asked to wear clothing and shoes suitable for PE plus their school sweatshirt.  Expectations for school uniform will be reviewed again for 2021-2022 and communicated to parents before the end of the summer term 2021.

Girls 

  • Sensible black shoes (with closed backs) or black trainers (no coloured logos)
  • Emerald green jumper or cardigan
  • White polo shirt or blouse
  • Black or grey skirt
  • Black or grey trousers or leggings
  • Green & white gingham dresses
  • Black or grey 3/4 length jubba with black or grey trousers or leggings underneath
  • Headscarves are optional but, if worn, should be plain emerald green, black or white headscarves - no pins or broaches allowed

Boys

  • Sensible black shoes (with closed backs) or black trainers (no coloured logos)
  • Emerald green jumper
  • White polo shirt or shirt
  • Black or grey trousers
  • Black or grey length jubba with black or grey trousers underneath

P.E Kit

  • Black plimsolls / trainers
  • Black shorts (not baggy), black leggings or black tracksuit bottoms (with elasticated waist and ankles)
  • White or emerald green t-shirt or white or emerald green close fitting long sleeved top
  • Headscarves are discouraged for safety reasons but, if worn, should be lycra and tucked in - no pins or broaches allowed
  • No jewellery should be worn for PE lessons or swimming, it is much safer if all jewellery is left at home to avoid loss or damage

Physical Education and swimming are part of the National Curriculum and they are a legal requirement for all children. Clothing should be appropriate for the activity and allow the wearer to take part without risk of injury to them self or other participants. The clothing we recommend ensure dignity and modesty are respected.

Uniform with the school logo can be purchased from the school reception at set time during the school year ñ dates and times are published in the school newsletter.

The school does not encourage children to wear jewellery for safety reasons. Any child coming to school not wearing the correct uniform will be spoken to by a member of staff and a telephone call will be made home, with the expectation that the child will be back in correct uniform the next day.
