Our Expectations

There is a clear expectation that all students will have the highest standards of personal presentation and they will wear their uniform with pride. It must be worn correctly throughout the school day. From time to time there will be special school events and activities when it will be a requirement for students to wear uniform e.g. School trips out of school, sporting events (PE kits). When in uniform students are seen as ambassadors of the school and are expected to follow the school Code of Conduct at all times.

There is no expectation that pupils wear uniform with the school logo attached

One of the responsibilities of parents/carers is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and PE kit. It is expected that it is clean and in good repair.

Uniform requirements

The children are encouraged to wear any of the following all year round:

  • Grey/navy/black school trousers
  • grey/navy blue pinafore dress or skirt
  • blue, white/sky blue/navy blue polo shirt or blouse
  • navy blue jumper or cardigan.

 Summer uniform consists of the following:

  • Blue/white t-shirts
  • blue/grey shorts
  • blue/white chequered dresses.

 PE clothing consists of:

  • red t-shirt, navy shorts and black pumps.
  • The children may wear trousers and a long sleeved top if they are doing outdoor PE in particularly cold weather- ask their class teacher for more information.

 Shoes: Black and sensible, with a closed toe. Summer sandals are not allowed. Boots may be worn in winter, however we do not advise sending pupils in non-waterproof boots (e.g. sheep skin Uggs, knitted boots).

Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name. Items with a school logo on can be purchased, please ask at the school office for details.

Other presentation expectations

We ask that children avoid wearing jewellery when-ever possible- small stud earrings may be worn in the school day but must be removed by the child for PE lessons.

We ask that parents/carers ensure the children do not get extreme haircuts or coloured dyes on their hair.

Children should always have a school book bag with them to contain their belongings.

No make-up or nail varnish is allowed to be worn by children.

Long hair should be tied up/back at all times.

No extreme haircuts/styles/colours are to be worn. This includes extreme hair accessories. E.g. JoJo Bow
