School Uniform

The wearing of a simple school uniform is encouraged as this gives the children a sense of identity. We trust parents will endeavour to send their children to school with the appropriate clothing. Items of jewellery particularly hooped earrings should not be worn to school Children with pierced ears may wear studs as long as they are removed during P.E. activities. Trainers are not suitable for daily wear, school shoes with low heels please. The school colours are navy and grey and the uniform is as follows:-

Grey short/long school trousers
Blue/white shirt or polo shirt
Navy jumper/sweatshirt with Navy cardigan/jumper
School logo* sweatshirt with school logo*
Summer dress:

Please ensure that your child wears suitable shoes to school. Shoes with high platform soles and heels or open-toes are unsafe at school. If children wear wellingtons to school they must bring a pair of shoes to change into. Similarly children should not be expected to wear plimsolls or training shoes all day in the classroom.
