School Uniform Policy


It is our policy that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning environment. We believe that certain activities are facilitated by appropriate clothing whether in school, or when participating in a school-organised event. We provide a complete list of the items needed for our school uniform in this policy.


Our policy for school uniform is based on the belief that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the children with the school
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.


  Our main colour is navy blue, items listed below are embroidered or printed with the school logo

  • Navy sweatshirt with school logo
  • White polo shirt with school logo

For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery in school. If children have pierced ears a small pair of plain stud earrings may be worn. These must be removed for PE.

Note:  If you are considering ear piercing, please time this to coincide with a longer school break.  Children cannot take part in practical PE activities unless earrings are removed.


Make up, Cosmetics and Hairbands
Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform.  The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children. 

Hair ties, bands etc are essential for keeping longer hair tied back, these must be modest in style and in uniform colours.


All clothing and footwear must be clearly labelled with your child’s name so that lost items may be returned.
