School uniform

As you know we take pride in the fact that all our children wear school uniform and would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for the support they give us in achieving this. School uniform is one of the ways in which we encourage the children to feel a part of the school community. 

Therefore as you may well be beginning to think about school uniform for September in the not too distant future, please can we remind you all that when you are buying new uniform please remember that shoes should be predominantly black.

The uniform is as follows:
                                                    White polo shirts with school logo
                                                    Grey shorts or long trousers
                                                    Royal blue sweatshirt with school logo
                                                    Sensible shoes, not boots (preferably without laces)
                                                    Grey skirt or pinafore dress
                                                    Royal blue cardigan (sweatshirt) with school logo
                                                    Blue and white check dress

PE Kit:
                                                    White t-shirt with school logo
                                                    Royal blue shorts
                                                    Royal blue / Grey tracksuit

Please note that the children in the Nursery do not need a PE kit.

Nail Varnish: Please remember that nail varnish and make up is not to be worn by pupils. Any designs that have been painted on during the holiday need to be removed by the start of school in September.

Earrings: Please also remember that earrings should not be warn for school for health and safety reasons.

Order forms for school uniform can be obtained from the school office from 3rd September.

Please ensure that ALL uniform is clearly named.

Thank you in advance for your support in this matter.

There is still lots more going on, the complete refurbishments of the Key Stage 2 Boys Toilets is well and truly underway as is the decoration of the canteen including new flooring!
