Reception and Primary Uniform

As seasons change, the uniform changes.  In September until October ½ term the children can wear either their Summer or Winter uniform (weather dependent). Winter uniform is compulsory from after the October half term until the end of the Easter break, and Summer uniform is optional from after the Easter holidays for the duration of the summer term. Please ensure all uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

  • Children are welcome to bring pencil cases with pens, crayons, pencils and so on to school, although we provide and keep at school all the stationery they will need to complete their lessons

Hair, Nails and Ears

We expect hair to be a single natural colour, neat and tidy; long hair must be tied back with black or blue hair bands, bobbles or clips.

We expect pupils with pierced ears to wear plain gold or silver studs (thereby keeping the one hole per ear, open). From primary school onward these will be covered with micropore tape or taken out when necessary, during games lessons.

It is important that nails are kept short and clean, and we expect no nail varnish to be worn.

Make up

Make up is prohibited in school, except very discreet make up may be worn in Year 10 and 11. Pupils with indiscreet makeup will be required to remove it before joining lessons.

Jewellery

No rings, bracelets or necklaces are to be worn. No smart watches (ie. Enabled by android or ios) are to be worn

Exceptions

Health requirements, eczema or diabetes for example, will be considered a reason for allowing adaptations to uniform in specific cases.
