Uniform

We are proud of all our children and think that when they are dressed smartly in their uniforms they are better prepared to learn at school. Our uniform is simple and supports a sensible approach. Please note that scarlet is the school colour. Please ensure all clothing has your child’s name in or on it. PE bags, or an equivalent, are particularly convenient.

Ordering Uniform

To make things easier for the office and more transparent for parents we offer six dates in the calendar for ordering uniform. Orders received before these dates (usually the penultimate Friday in each term) will be held until one bulk order can be dispatched. Our manufacturer then has two weeks to produce the garments, which should be delivered on the first day of the next term. The order form is available here.

Our School Uniform is…

  • Embroidered round neck sweatshirt or cardigan (available via the office)
  • Grey or black school trousers or tailored shorts or Grey school skirt/culottes
  • White or red polo shirt or white shirt/blouse (long or short sleeves)
  • Red and white gingham/striped dress or Grey pinafore dress

Shoes

It is important that children wear sensible school shoes (preferably black or brown) and not trainers. Shoes with large heels are particularly unsuitable for the safety of children, especially when they need to run and play at break times. In the summer children can wear proper tailored sandals. Slip-on footwear e.g. mules, flip flops or ‘Crocs’ are not suitable for school. Practicality is essential. Boots, of any kind, are not allowed.

Sports Kit

  • Red T-Shirt with printed logo and Navy blue/black plain shorts and
  • Plimsolls (indoor PE sessions) and Trainers (outside sessions)
  • Tracksuits or equivalent are recommended for outdoor sessions
  • One-piece swimming costume for girls and swimming hat (T5 and 6 only)
  • Swimming trunks and hat for boys (T5 and 6 only)

Hairstyles

Hairstyles should be sensible and practicable. Coloured hair or extreme cuts are not suitable for school. Long hair should be kept tidy and preferably tied back. Hair should not impede PE lessons. Tied back hair is less susceptible to transmittable agents e.g. head lice. Extreme hairstyles are often difficult to reverse and can cause anxiety to your child. Please be vigilant.

Jewellery

No Jewellery should be worn for school. Exceptions include a sensible watch and stud earrings. Pierced ears, within the first 6/8 weeks, should be covered with a plaster/medical tape (provided by home) during sports sessions. Please note that ‘taped’ ears are not suitable in the pool. For health and safety reasons children are not permitted to wear necklaces or bracelets or rings because of the potential danger to the wearer and others. This includes ‘religious symbols’. Any parent having concerns over this should speak directly to the Headteacher.
