Uniform Information

We expect that all children will wear school uniform as we believe that this contributes positively to the ethos and standards of the school.


School uniform consists of:

  • Blue sweatshirt/cardigan/jumper with school logo
  • White polo shirt or white blouse or shirt
  • Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers (no jeans)
  • Blue check dress (summer)
  • School tie (Years 5 & 6)
  • Dark school shoes  (not trainers or boots)
  • School book bag

School sweatshirts, cardigans. t shirts, book bags and ties are available from the school office and from Kids Essentials in Northfield. Preloved uniform is also available at local uniform swop shops.


An appropriate coat/jacket suitable for the season should be worn.


Boots are sensible for bad weather but children must bring school shoes to change into. Heeled shoes and flip flop style sandals or crocs are not suitable.


One piece, elasticated hijabs are permitted for those who want hair to be covered. These should be in blue, black or white. Long hair should be tied back.



Please note that jewellery must not be worn to school. Small stud earrings can be worn but must be removed for PE and swimming. Children will be asked to remove jewellery and take it home with them.
