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 child. 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 online via our school uniform supplier, ties, sweaters and bags, as well as some items that can be bought elsewhere such as gloves, scarves and hats. Prices are kept as close to cost as possible. Items such as trousers, skirts and dresses must be purchased at retail outlets such as John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and most large supermarket stores.
Second-hand uniform sales take place reguarly in the school playground. Please ask your parent rep or the PTA when these dates are so that you can buy, at very reasonable prices, nearly new school uniform. We strongly encourage that you use this service as it is not only economically a good idea, it is also better for the environment. Save the pounds and the planet.
Below is a form which includes instructions and collection information. Completed forms are to be emailed to the new PTA email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) with an email message confirming payment via bank transfer. Orders placed by Tuesday each week will be available in boxes outside the entrance by Miss Mair's office by Friday. Orders will be bagged, clearly labelled and ordered by year group to ease collection.
Given the very high levels of stock, we would request that parents continue to keep hold of any further donations for the time being. Once we are through working out the logistics of this new online selling service, we will be in a position to take in more stock. Thanks a lot for your understanding.
