A school uniform helps to create a sense of unity and belonging. It also guards against constantly changing fashions, reduces expenditure, and ensures children have practical clothing for all activities in school. We have tried to be as practical and accommodating as possible, bearing in mind the following criteria - school colours, comfort, safety, suitability for school, ability to stand up to the rigours of the school day, economy, ease of local purchase and parents' willingness to co-operate.
For these reasons, school dress may be a combination of grey, white and royal blue. Top garments (shirts, etc.) to be blue or white, and bottoms to be grey. Clothing is to be as plain as possible.
In summer shorts and T-shirts or short sleeved shirts/blouses in plain school colours may be worn. Cotton gingham dresses in school colours are another option.
KS2 children will still require a complete change of clothing for P.E./Games.
In the interest of health and safety, footwear should be flat lace-ups, bar shoes or trainers. Heavy boots and high-heeled or pointed shoes are not allowed. For the same reason we discourage the wearing of jewellery, particularly earrings.
In wet weather or snow, we ask that children who wear wellington boots have a change of footwear, for indoors.
