School Uniform


It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. A complete list of the items needed for school are outlined below.

Aims and objectives

Our policy is based on the notion that a school uniform: promotes a sense of pride in the school.

  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging.
  • is practical and smart.
  • identifies the children with the school.
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be).
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents.
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Swimming Kit

  • Shorts or trunks, or a one-piece swimming costume.
  • A towel and a drawstring bag to keep wet kit separate from dry
  • A pair of goggles if required.
  • Own swimming cap if preferred (school will provide where necessary).

Second Hand Uniform

Second hand uniform will be available to purchase at school events or on request.

Naming of Clothing 

All items of clothing must be clearly marked with your child’s full name. This cannot be stressed enough. We collect a vast amount of unnamed lost property.  Periodically, lost property will be displayed for parents.

School Bags

Key Stage 1 - To avoid congestion in classrooms / cloakrooms, children will need a book bag with or without school logo to carry any personal belongings. No other bag is permitted.

Key Stage 2 Any bag brought into school must fit within the school lockers.

Water bottles

Named water bottles are required in school.


On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are small, gold or silver stud earrings in pierced ears, watches and small objects of religious significance.

During PE lessons, stud earrings should be taped over, and the other above-mentioned items must be removed and handed to the teacher for safekeeping. If a child wears a medical bracelet, it must be covered with a sweatband in order to partake in PE. The same rule applies if a child wants to wear a Fitbit. 


The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes with platform soles or high heels in school, so we do not allow this. We require all children to wear the types of shoes described in the uniform list.

No form of boot is allowed.


Makeup and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of school hours’ function, e.g. a school disco.          

Hairstyles / Hair Ornaments

Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair.

Long hair below the shoulder should be tied back for health and safety reasons. Hair bands, ribbons, bows or scrunchies should be plain and either blue or black.

Uniform at Church Services

For all Church services (Harvest, Christmas, Christingle and Easter), if children are not wearing related costumes, they will be expected to wear their winter uniform.      

The Role of Parents

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. Parents should ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair and clearly labelled.

If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, e.g. religious objections, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests. Similarly, should an item of school uniform prove problematic for a pupil with additional needs, then parents are invited to draw this to the attention of the headteacher. The school will not treat pupils with additional needs unfavourably.

The Role of Governors

The governing body supports the headteacher in implementing the school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding this policy and liaises with the headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.

It is the governors' responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all national regulations concerning equal opportunities, and that our school uniform policy is consistent with our policy on equal opportunities.

Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly in clothing that is hardwearing, safe, and practical.

Monitoring and Review

When monitoring this policy, through its committee work, the governing body will:

  • consider, with the headteacher, any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensations.
  • require the headteacher to report to the governors on the way in which the policy is being implemented.

This policy will be reviewed by the governing body every three years, or earlier if considered necessary.
