Uniform

The school colours are claret and blue. We believe that wearing a school uniform helps to create a feeling of unity within the school. Maintaining good standards of dress and behaviour also helps to create a good attitude to work.

Please ensure that ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT ARE NAMED. In case of loss this makes them much easier to find. This saves us a great deal of time and can save your child some heartache.

We have appointed The Schoolwear Company as our approved supplier of school uniform.  Samples of all items and sizes are available in Reception.  To view and order please visit their website at

      The School Wear Company

 The following basic items are desirable:

Boys’ Uniform

  • Light blue / white polo shirt
  • Dark grey trousers (short or long)
  • Claret school sweatshirt
  • Sensible black shoes - no trainers

Girls' Uniform

  • White / light blue blouse or polo shirt
  • Dark grey skirt / culottes / pinafore dress / trousers
  • Claret school sweatshirt / cardigan
  • White socks / black tights
  • Sensible black shoes - no trainers

Summer Term

  • Light blue check/stripe dresses
  • White socks
  •  Physical Education Kit

Indoor kit for both boys and girls

  • Blue, black or white shorts (not Bermuda or cycling shorts)
  • House colour T shirt
  • Socks (plain) - no tights
  • Plimsolls (note that sometimes we also ask the children to do PE in bare feet)

Please ensure that the children’s clothes are placed in a named drawstring bag. 

We would prefer the children to keep their PE kit in school, taking it home at a weekend or when it needs washing. The children will be told at the beginning of the year when their PE lessons are and will be expected to have their kit for these times. PE is part of the National Curriculum and all children must participate unless there is a medical reason why they should not. In this case parents should either phone or write a note to the school please.

Outdoor kit for both boys and girls

  • Tracksuit / joggers and sweatshirt
  • T shirt/sports shirt in house colours
  • Suitable trainers
  • Football boots optional
  • Shin pads (compulsory for football and hockey)

All these should be named and put in a named bag or rucksack of suitable size.  Please do not allow the children to bring their indoor or outdoor kit in large holdalls.  Unfortunately, there is insufficient room to store them.

Swimming

For both Boys and Girls 

  • Swimming costume (no bikinis or board shorts)
  • Large towel
  • Bathing cap (for all children with long hair)
  • Goggles and earplugs if required

A plastic bag in which to put wet equipment would also be an advantage.

School Teams

If your child is chosen for a school team a suitable kit will be provided for them; although we may ask you to provide socks. Please wash and return this to school as soon as possible as other teams may need it.

Where to Buy the Uniform

The claret sweatshirt and cardigan, school bookbags and PE T-shirts are only available from The Schoolwear Company.  All other items may be purchased from The Schoolwear Company or you will find them available at any of the following clothes stores:

Practical Work

To protect clothing during art, craft, design and technology work the children should wear a protective apron. Some are available in classes. An adult’s old shirt put on backwards with elastic around the cuffs and velcro at the back instead of buttons also makes an excellent apron.
