We value children being coming to school in full uniform as it helps to develop a sense of belonging and sets the tone for the learning environment. Mindful of the cost to parents, however, we take a sensible approach. Whilst items with the school crest are available, these are not a requirement. Our PTA keep a good stock of pre-loved uniform which is all in excellent condition and available at a minimal cost to parents.
There is a sale of pre-loved uniform every half term but our PTA are happy to make this available in between times for any parent who would like to access it. Contact the school office to arrange this.
Pupils are encouraged to wear practical uniform based on the school colours of red, white and grey.
White shirt or polo shirt
Sweatshirts, jumpers or cardigans,
should be RED and with the school crest,
Black or grey trousers
Black or grey skirt / pinafore
Plain socks / tights of school colours
Medium grey shorts
Red and white checked dress
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 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.)
