Uniform

Dress
We strongly encourage children to wear school uniform.  Our school colours are blue, grey and white. Sweatshirts, cardigans and white polo shirts with the school badge on are available from tesco.com, by following the link below:

Leaflets are available from the school office. A fleece for outdoor wear is also available.

We would like children to wear the following with their school sweatshirt:-

Boys

Girls

White polo shirt or white shirt.
Grey trousers or shorts.

White polo shirt or white blouse.
White blouse/shirt
Grey trousers, pinafore or skirt.
In summer a blue stripe, or check dress.

Flat, black sensible shoes should be worn to school - not high heels.  If trainers are worn they should be black in colour.

Stud/small sleeper earrings may be worn, but we request that no other jewellery should be warn unless for religious or medical reasons.

Please label each item of clothing with your child’s name so that lost clothing can be returned quickly to the owner.

Parents can order sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, pump bags and reading folders, which display the school badge.  Please enquire at the school office for prices and an order form.

Key Stage One

Young children need clothes they can manage independently.

For PE

  • A small, named, drawstring kit bag (no sports bags as there is not room for these in our small cloakrooms).
  • Tee shirt, shorts and elastic-sided or Velcro plimsolls.

Hair should be tied back, if worn long, to minimise the risk of entanglement.  Please tie your child’s hair back before school unless s/he is able to do this promptly while changing for PE.

Key Stage Two

The basic information and PE kit are similar to Key Stage One, although at 7+ children can be expected to cope with changing promptly into and out of a range of footwear (e.g. for PE lessons).  Extra items needed in Key Stage Two are:

For PE

  • Boots suitable for football, which is played on grass, weather permitting.
  • Suitable trainers/plimsolls for playground games such as netball or hockey.
  • Plimsolls for indoor gymnastics.  (Trainers are not suitable for apparatus work).
  • Track suits/sweatshirts (may be worn outdoors in cold weather).

The school policy for PE lessons is based on good health and safety practice.  For indoor PE activities (except high-impact games such as basketball) pupils may work in bare feet.

School sweatshirts and school bags can only be bought online from tesco.com/ues   The school no longer sells any uniform or bags. Leaflets​ explaining how to place orders are available from the school office. Please call in if you need any help.
