Our School Uniform policy has been ratified by our School Governing Body.

A selection of second hand uniform is available to purchase from the second hand uniform shop from the school office.

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform in school and whilst on trips. This policy is based on the belief that school uniform:

  • a sense of pride in the school;
  • gives a sense of community and belonging;
  • is practical and smart;
  • identifies children with the school;
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion items can be);
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents; and
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind.
