It is vitally important that the children take pride in both the presentation of their work and also in their appearance, we expect all pupils to wear the correct uniform during the day and for PE. School uniform provides consistency and a sense of belonging for all children in all year groups, as well as helping to prepare those children who will be moving to secondary school at the end of the academic year.

We expect all parents and carers to support their child to have the correct uniform as detailed below.

  • Purple sweatshirt or cardigan, school logo optional

Thank you for taking pride in your school uniform! Time for Change!!

School uniform provides consistency and a sense of belonging for all children in all year groups and significantly reduces bullying. Please can you note that there are two sets of uniform: Uniform 1 and Uniform 2—we support any child and their choice to pick one set of uniform and wear this in school.  With your help we would like your high standards of appearance to continue -we hope that these guidelines prove helpful.  For your information autumn term school uniform can be purchased either in store or on-line from local  supermarkets.  If you are having financial difficulties organising uniform we are happy to support you and your child, please contact the school office or  the Pastoral Team for advice.
