Pupils are encouraged to wear practical uniform based on the school colours of red, white and grey. Wearing a uniform helps to develop a sense of belonging to the school and prevents competition and additional cost to parents. We have found that wearing school colours supports us in maintaining our high standards of behaviour.
With regard to indoor shoes, children should come to school in their school shoes (black and not trainers) and they will remain in these during the course of the school day. Outdoor footwear should be sensible and safe for playtime use. It is still advisable however, to provide your child with black pumps to keep at school for any emergencies.

For health and safety reasons children must have a change of clothes for PE. Jewellery must not be worn at school. If children have to wear studs they should not wear them on days when they expect to take PE or be able to take them out for PE themselves. (Please supply a suitable box to store them in or micro pore tape to tape over the earrings.)
PE is a statutory requirement under the National Curriculum. As such all children are expected to participate unless excused through ill health. Please send in a note if your child is to be excused. For indoor PE, children will be requested to be barefoot or wear pumps depending on the activity. If for medical problems they need to wear pumps for every PE session, please inform your teacher. All children with the exception of Reception need to wear trainers for outdoor PE.
Hairstyles should not be attention seeking. Extreme styles such as sculptured names/symbols, mohicans or dyed hair are neither appropriate nor acceptable for children of primary school age. For health and safety reasons long hair should be kept out of children's eyes and fully tied up for PE.
