Uniform - Only applicable to Reception Children - Year 6 Pupils

It is part of our School Uniform Policy that all children wear the school uniform. School uniform sets a good tone and standard in addition to identifying the school and promoting our uniqueness. We believe that the wearing of a school uniform gives children a sense of belonging with their school; it is practical and smart, reinforces a positive work ethos and reduces expenditure for parents and carers by avoiding inequalities in terms of possessing the latest designer fashions.

All compulsory items bearing the embroidered school logo must be purchased from Brigade Clothing via their online service called PARENTS DIRECT. The school does not take orders for uniform and does not hold any stock of uniform items. The school office has set of sample size of uniforms for jumpers and cardigans. If you would like to check the correct size please come to the school office on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday between 10am – 2 pm.

Items listed below that do not specify a school logo (e.g: white polo) may be obtained from either our supplier or a supplier of your choice.

Shoes must be black in colour. They must be practical and give good protection to the toes; boots/sandals are not permitted. Socks must be worn even during summer and they should be black or grey in colour. White ventilated summer socks are available from high street stores and these are recommended to be worn during hot weather. Girls skirts and pinafore dresses must fall below the knee.

Pupils who arrive at school in breach of the School Uniform Policy will be referred to the Principal for consideration and may be sent home to change, or their parents/carers may be contacted, depending upon the age of the child.

(Further details can be found in the Parent Handbook. Details will also be sent to all parents/carers who have accepted an offer of admission for a school placement)

  • Pupils will change into their black trainers during their break or activity if they are wearing their school shoes.
  • The weather is not suitable to wear plimsolls all day with the P.E Kit.
  • In accordance with good practice guidelines, all children now participate in indoor activities involving bare feet. Children will change into their trainers, plimsolls or have bare feet depending on the PE lesson. Please note that plimsolls are no longer used for some indoor P.E. – i.e. gymnastics and dance.
  • Girls need to keep a pair of socks with their kit if they wear tights to school. 

 

Labelling Your Child's Uniform

It is vital that all children are able to locate their own property as it facilitates early reading skills, independence and self-esteem. Please ensure that all your child's clothing and property including shoes are clearly labelled. Your child's name should appear in lower case letters, with the first letter of their name/surname in capitals.

The most appropriate option is to purchase pre-printed iron-on name labels which will last throughout your child's school years and are easily available online. If you are not purchasing pre-printed labels, then your child’s first name must be clearly handwritten with a black, permanent marker pen onto iron-on name labels.

All items including bags must be clearly labelled. School cannot take responsibility for lost uniform / property.
