Uniform

Uniform is important as it can plays a key role in promoting the ethos of a school and providing a sense of belonging and identity.

Our school uniform is royal blue, white, grey and yellow:

  • Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan (with or without the school logo)
  • Grey trousers/shorts/skirt/pinafore
  • White polo-shirt (with or without the school logo)
  • Pale blue and white or yellow and white gingham dress in summer
  • White, grey or black socks or tights
  • Black shoes suitable for school, which your child can fasten independently (children should only wear shoes with laces or buckles if they are able to fasten and unfasten them independently)
  • In summer plain black, white, navy or tan sandals suitable for school may be worn instead of shoes.

Our PE kit is royal blue and yellow:

From September 2022, children will wear their PE kit to school on the days of their PE lessons (usually two days each week, which will be notified in advance)

  • Royal blue shorts or jogging bottoms
  • Yellow round-necked t-shirt (with or without the school logo)
  • Trainers with a flexible sole and easy fastening (children should only wear trainers with laces if they are able to tie and untie them independently)
  • Royal blue hoody, cardigan or sweatshirt (with or without the school logo)
  • Optional for dance and gymnastics lessons: black school pumps

Notes:

  • All items of uniform should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.  Please check periodically names are still readable.
  • Children should bring a book bag (of any colour) to school each day to carry their reading books.  Royal blue book bags with the school logo are available to purchase.
  • Children should NOT bring other bags to school as we do not have room in cloakrooms for storing large bags.
  • A named plastic or metal (not glass) water bottle should be brought each day.
  • Children should have a waterproof coat (of any colour) suitable for the seasonal weather.
  • On sunny days, children should bring a named cap or sunhat and/or sunglasses to wear outside.
  • In colder weather, hats, gloves and scarves (of any colour) may be worn.
  • Any hair accessories and head coverings should be consistent with our school colours
  • If your child has a packed lunch, a lunchbox with a handle which they can carry independently is ideal.
  • Jewellery: children with pierced ears should wear stud earrings only for safety. A small piece of devotional jewellery may be worn.
