Our school has a formal uniform for all pupils.  We see this as a way to show a positive and purposeful spirit in the attitude of our pupils and pride in our schools. 

  • All pupils are expected to present themselves in a neat and tidy way.
  • Pupils may not wear make-up or jewellery (except one stud per ear for those with pierced ears) Earrings must be removed by the child, or before school, when there are P.E. games or swimming lessons. Plastic studs may be worn and can be purchased from the school office.
  • Hair colour and style should be sensible (no extreme fashions). No hair gel. We recommend that long hair is tied back at all times.  It must be tied back for P.E. ,games, swimming and food preparation.
  • Dark coloured shoes, which need to be sensible (no open-toe sandals) and must not include trainers (except for P.E.).  If boots are worn to walk to school  then children must have shoes in school to change in to.

Uniform donations

We have a second-hand uniform rail in the front entrance of the infant school, which families can browse through and help themselves to any items which their child may need. 

If you have any uniform, PE kit or school shoes in good, clean condition which your child has outgrown or you no longer need, we would be very grateful if you could bring them into school and hand them in at either of the school offices. If you have any spare children’s hangers you could donate, these would also be useful. 

All items will be quarantined for at least 72 hours, before being put on the rail for parents from both sites to access, free of charge. There is no need to ask to come in and have a look, just pop in and browse any time during school hours.
