During normal school hours, we expect that all children wear our school uniform whether onsite or participating in school organised events.  There may be occasions when school uniform is not required, e.g. fundraising days, party days or attending certain activities or visits.

What are our principles?

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school in line with our ethos
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • promote inclusion where all of our children are equal and no one is seen disadvantaged or not belonging
  • supports positive behaviour and discipline
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the children with the school and encourages identity with the school
  • prevents children from coming to school in fashion or ‘designer’ label clothes
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents
  • is designed with health and safety in mind to be safe and comfortable

Jewellery is not allowed to be worn in school.  Earrings are not encouraged, however if ears are pierced only studs may be worn.  After having ears pierced for 6 weeks, we ask that studs are removed or covered up with plaster/tape to prevent injury in PE lessons.  Parents should provide their own tape or plasters.


Shoes must be flat, black or navy for outdoors. 

Indoor shoes – a change of footwear for Years 1-6 are needed.  These must be flat.  Plimsolls or pumps are ideal.  No Crocs or slippers please.


Hairstyles should be safe and appropriate for school.  No patterns or symbols in hair.  Long hair should be tied up and must be tied up for PE.

What is the role of parents?

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the School Uniform Policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and that it is clean and in good repair.
