School Uniform and Essentials

Our policy is not to restrict the choices available by gender or by season. Please ensure your child/children are dressed smartly in the correct uniform.

Please ensure all items are clearly labelled with your child’s name to minimise loss,
confusion and distress to your child.

Most items can be bought from any shop. Starred items (*) are available from Marks & Spencer at

Any combination of the following:  

  • Red polo shirt (no crest needed) * or white shirt (not polo) (most children find the short sleeved shirts more comfortable to wear than long sleeved shirts)
  • Grey shorts, trousers, pinafore, skirt, skort or coulottes
  • Red checked dress/playsuit
  • Grey, white or navy socks
  • Navy school sweater or cardigan with crest *
  • Red school tie – optional, school ties are available to purchase from the school office.


  • Navy polo shirt (no crest needed)
  • Navy shorts or skort (no crest needed)
  • Navy sweatshirt/fleece
  • Navy tracksuit bottoms for outdoor PE in winter
  • Trainers
  • Extra socks to change into

All children should wear PE Kit to school on their allocated PE days.  Please ensure your child has spare PE Kit to change into in case they get wet at break/lunchtime.

Please note that plimsolls are not part of the PE uniform. When children participate in Gym, Movement or Dance indoors, they should do this in bare feet unless there are medical reasons not to. All outdoor activities require the children to wear trainers.

SHOES – Trainers on PE days. Sensible, practical black shoes (no trainers) on school uniform days.


JEWELLERY, WATCHES & HAIR – All jewellery should be removed and earrings covered with tape for PE lessons.  Watches should be removed and long hair should be tied back.

Bags: Please provide your child with a small rucksack for spare PE Kit but please avoid drawstring bags as they can cause trips and can get caught in spokes of bikes if cycling to school.  We are phasing out the use of book bags across all year groups, and in the future, the school rucksacks will not contain the logo. The small rucksacks which are available from M&S are the ideal size for children in Reception in particular. Other children in older year groups can use a rucksack of their choice but appropriate to the child’s size.

Water Bottle:  All children should have a named water bottle which is filled with fresh water each day at home and then brought to school for use in the classroom.  We ask that the bottles only include water and not cordial or fruit juice.  The bottle is then taken home each day after school for washing. We know that children concentrate better when they drink regularly and keep hydrated.

Weather protection: When the weather dictates, please apply a long lasting sun cream to your child before school and ensure they have a sunhat to wear.

Coats: Please ensure your child has a suitable waterproof coat or jacket, waterproof trousers, gloves and a warm hat in school at all times so that they can learn and play outdoors.

Wellington Boots: For Reception children, please ensure that a pair of named wellington boots is kept at school for your child to use throughout the school year in Reception.


Please ensure all items brought into school are clearly named.
