School Uniform Policy


It is our school policy that all children wear uniform when attending school or when participating in a school organised event outside of school hours.

Aims and Objectives

Our policy for school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • Is practical and smart
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and is considered by parents as good value for money
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind

All polo shirts and sweatshirts have the official school logo and can purchased in school.



Black school shoes should be worn by all pupils; this is in keeping with the smart appearance that is expected at our school.  We do not encourage the wearing of trainers to school, except for sports and PE activities.  The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults.  We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels and we strongly discourage the wearing of such.  In the interests of health and safety we also discourage the wearing of sandals in the Summer Term.


Role of Parents

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy.  It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and that it is clean and presentable.

The role of Governors

It is the Governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all the regulations concerning equal opportunities.  The Governors will consider with the principal, any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensation, either for religious or medical reasons, with regard to school uniform.
