Our school uniform 


The school uniform consists of:

  • A purple sweatshirt or cardigan (with school logo)
  • Dark grey or black trousers or dark grey or black skirt/pinafore dress
  • White polo shirt
  • Purple and white checked/striped summer dress with white cardigan, or dark grey or black shorts (optional in Summer Term only)
  • Purple school book bag



For health and safety reasons children need to wear footwear that is appropriate for school. All children are required to wear plain black shoes with easy fastenings. These shoes should be unbranded and free from logos (no stripes or ticks). All school shoes should be flat (no platform soles, wedges or raised/high heels), and have no patterns or overly elaborate buckles, bows or other embellishments.

Boots can be worn to school providing that they are no higher than ankle bone height, and do not have fluffy or furry cuffs that fold over. Ankle or knee high boots are not to be worn indoors. Children will be asked to bring a suitable pair of shoes with them to change into or they will be required to wear their PE shoes whilst inside the school building.



Uniform order forms for the embroidered sweatshirts, cardigans and polo shirts can be found on the leaflet stand in school reception. Alternatively you can download and print the form here.  These three items, and the school book bag, are only available to buy from school. Trousers, skirts and plain polo shirts can be purchased from most supermarkets and department stores.



Please check lost property near the school office if your child has lost any items.

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, such as Income Support, Universal Credit, Child Tax Credit, Income Related Jobseekers Allowance, and have successfully registered as being eligible for Free Schools Meals, you may be entitled to some help toward the cost of school uniform.
