Uniform Information

Early Years Setting

Please make sure your child's name is in all items of clothing.  Children often wear the same or similar clothes and can easily become mixed up or "lost".  A simple mark or name on the label will be sufficient.

Also your child will be using things such as paint, glue, and wet sand, mud.  However careful we are accidents sometimes happen therefore please do not dress your child in new or best clothes for the Early Years Setting.


​School-Aged Children


Children should wear red cardigans, jumpers or sweatshirts, white shirts or blouses and grey or black skirts or trousers.  Red dresses are appropriate for the summer time.  Samples are on show and order forms are available from outside the school office.

To aid growing feet suitable and sensible shoes should be worn at all times. Fashion shoes and trainers are not appropriate.  Sandals worn by children in the summer time should be low-heeled with closed toes for health and safety reasons.  All children with long hair are to have it tied back in order to help reduce the spread of headlice.

By adopting a school colour the children will feel a sense of belonging to the school community.

  • During winter months, your child needs to bring a tracksuit or other suitable clothing to school for PE so that we can carry out activities outside.

Lost Property

From time to time items of lost property are found around school.  These are kept in the each year group for a period of up to one month.  After this time we will dispose of them.

To keep lost property to a minimum, please ensure your child's belongings are clearly labelled.
