Our Primary Uniform

Uniform is important to us – it provides a sense of community and cohesion among the student body, and it helps to prevent competitive dressing. It helps to develop good habits, and, as part of this, we expect to arrive at school every day in clean clothes, worn in a tidy manner. We expect students to wear their uniform to the highest standard throughout the day.

We don’t want someone’s day to start badly with an unnecessary conversation with staff about what they are wearing, so we ask for parents help in making sure that all students are wearing the right uniform.

One thing to note, please: ‘hoodies’ (pull-over or zip-up style) may not be worn to, from or at school at any time other than on specified non-uniform days.

Our uniform shop is located in the primary campus. It is open from Monday to Thursday, between 9am and 4.40pm, and on Friday between 8.30am and 3.50pm. There is no need to make a reservation.

SHOES

They should be shoes that provide support, allow feet to breathe and grow. Shoes should be black in colour. Children are not permitted to wear boots or open toed sandals. EYFS and KS1 children should wear shoes that they can put on and take off independently. We also ask that children in EY Cubs and KS1 bring a pair of indoor shoes to change into. These should also be black and easy for children to get on and off.

HAIR

All pupils (boys and girls) with shoulder length or longer hair must keep this tied back during the school day. Children should use dark coloured bands/elastics. Brightly coloured hair accessories are discouraged. Children are not permitted to have haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.

JEWELLERY

Pupils are only permitted to wear stud earrings in pierced ears and small objects of religious significance, such as a crucifix on a chain. No other form of jewellery is permitted. For health and safety purposes we ask that pupils remove all jewellery during PE and games, or to cover it with a plaster.

NAIL POLISH / TATTOOS

We ask that children do not come to school with temporary tattoos in visible places such as hands, arms and necks. Coloured nail polish should not be worn.

Letting Us Know about Uniform Problems: We understand that there are sometimes genuine problems that prevent students from being able to wear uniform: torn clothing, missing shoes etc. In these circumstances, we’d be grateful if parents could write a brief note or email to a student’s class teacher.

This helps us to separate the genuine cases from the others.
