It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event, during or outside normal school hours. We want all our children to look smart when at school and feel proud to wear their uniform.

Our uniform policy is outlined below.   We expect all our children to wear a school jumper or cardigan carrying our logo and these can be purchased via the Price and Buckland link below:



All other items can be purchased from any High Street store or supermarket, they DO NOT need to be order from Price and Buckland.

We also offer optional Edith Cavell book-bags and PE bags.

We expect all children to wear plain flat black shoes in school (No trainers). During the winter, children can wear flat boots to school but they need to change into black shoes or black pumps to wear inside the school building. Flat black sandals can be worn in summer. Footwear should not have any adornments such as logos, fur, braid, beads etc.

Hair, jewellery and accessories

    • Medical identification bracelets may be worn by children who have significant medical problems eg. Diabetes or epilepsy
  • Watches – to be analogue or digital.  No smart watches
  • Hair accessories are to be kept to a discreet minimum and in blue – neither large bows nor headbands with decorative pieces are allowed
