What a child wears to school reflects his/her learning. Wearing a uniform is a badge of pride, creates an identity for a school and is an important part of being a school student. It also portrays the school’s ethos and shared positive values. We have a smart uniform that all children are expected to wear. It is also important for children to wear the correct clothing for physical activities. For PE children are required to wear the correct PE Kit.
Our uniform service provides both personalised items that are only available via the school, ties, sweaters and bags, as well as some items that can be bought elsewhere such as gloves, scarves and hats. Items such as trousers, skirts and dresses must be purchased at retail outlets such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer and most large supermarket stores. The service is run by the PTA and prices are kept as close to cost as is possible.
For new parents sales are held when they come into school for the 'New Parents Meeting' prior to their child's admission. For those already attending there are order forms available from the school office which are filled on a weekly basis and delivered via the relevant child's school bag. For items required as a matter of urgency please speak to a member of office staff. There are also termly second-hand sales where coats cost £1 and all other items cost 50p.
