We expect all our pupils to wear school uniform. This consists of a school sweatshirt /jumper or cardigan in navy blue or grey and a white shirt or polo-shirt which can be ordered from the Schoolshop website (link below). The sweatshirt, jumper or cardigan can be worn with grey or black trousers or skirts in the school colours.  Mini-skirts and ‘designer’ type clothing are not acceptable, please. Apart from the school sweatshirt and T-shirt, which have the school logo printed on, all other items listed for school uniform should be plain. Dresses using school colours can be worn in fine weather. Tights and socks should be black, grey or white.

For Physical Education, the children will require shorts and t-shirts. These should be plain and be in the school colours. P.E.  t-shirts with the school logo can be purchased from school uniform website. Plimsolls are also required for P.E. sessions, and these can also be worn as indoor shoes. Children will be encouraged to change their shoes when they enter the school building if the weather is inclement. This helps to keep the school clean. Please note, children should wear sensible shoes for during the day and only wear trainers for games sessions. Girls should wear shoes or trainers which are flat (shoes with open toes and heel straps are not appropriate as these can be dangerous in the playground). Trainers need to be ‘traditional’ in style and colour, please. No “designer”type/colour shoes, trainers (including flashing trainers or fluorescent laces) or clothing are acceptable.

For football sessions (or other outdoor sessions in damp conditions), all children will need appropriate footwear. These can be in the form of sturdy trainers, which may get very muddy, or football boots, and should be kept separate from other P.E. kit.

P.E./book bags can also be purchased from the school uniform website. We encourage the use of these P.E. bags because cloakroom space is very limited, and if pupils have large holdalls then coats usually end up on the floor.

Please could parents ensure that all clothing, shoes and bags are named. Much time, and sometimes tears, is spent when clothing goes missing or children are unable to identify items.

We strongly encourage the wearing of school uniform in school and on all educational visits. Many people compliment us on the smart appearance of the pupils, and we hope very much to have your support in this area.

Nail varnish should not be worn.


For health and safety reasons, jewellery must not be worn at school. This includes bracelets, necklaces, earrings etc. The wearing of jewellery may cause injury to the wearer or to other pupils and that this also applies to the wearing of studs. If studs must be worn then these need to be removed for P.E. sessions. Friendship bracelets or anklets should not be worn.

These rules are set for the safety of all pupils.
