The school dress code was established following consultations with parents and pupils and therefore receives support from all involved in our uniform’s purchase, wear and care. In school we positively encourage pupils to wear the uniform so that they are appropriately and safely dressed for a wide range of activities; that they share in the common aims and values of our school; and that they have a sense of belonging. Uniform is available from Match Fit Kit in Weddington Road.


Day Wear


Grey standard school trousers, skirt, pinafore or culottes.


Either: Plain white formal school shirt or blouse worn with a school tie and a green V neck jumper or cardigan with school crest.


Or: White polo shirt with green school sweatshirt with school crest.


Girls may wear summer dresses when warm, in green and white gingham, check or stripe.


Dark socks for boys: white or grey socks or knitted tights for girls in green, grey or white. Plain sensible flat waterproof footwear.

NOTE  Parents must ensure that the appropriate kit is provided for PE Games and swimming lessons. If it is forgotten in exceptional circumstances parents will be telephoned and requested to bring it for the lesson. If parents cannot be contacted, children will be provided with kit from school, which they will be required to take home, wash and return. If for medical reasons a child needs to miss PE, games or swimming, a letter is required from parents. Any medical requirements needed by the school in order for the child to be included in a lesson must be given prior to the lesson.


Naming Items


It is essential that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with the child’s name and any PE kit should be brought to school in an appropriate bag. This can remain at school on the child’s peg. Pupils should take home all kit at half term to check and rename as necessary. Kit should be brought in a small bag as cloakroom space is limited.



Jewellery and Watches


For safety reasons we discourage children from wearing any kind of jewellery. Children with pierced ears may only wear plain studs. On swimming and PE days all jewellery should be removed before coming to school. The wearing of make up and nail varnish is not permitted. Watches may be worn by Key Stage 2 pupils.
