School Uniform


Why is uniform important?

We value our smart uniform as it ensures that all our children feel an equal part and proud of our school community!

Wearing uniform teaches you to be smart and ensures that you are ready to approach your learning with a professional mind-set.  Pupils are, therefore, expected to wear the official school uniform whilst they attend our school.

“The Department strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.” – Department for Education


Circumstances should not be a barrier to providing uniform or looking smart.  If your child is eligible for free school meals, we can support with the cost of some uniform should this be needed.  Please speak to the school office who will be able to help you further.

What happens if my child does not wear school uniform?

Our children look smart and wear uniform proudly, thank you for your support! We understand that life happens and there may be a one off isolated incident where your child is unable to wear their school uniform and we ask that you kindly communicate this with us.  We may make contact with you to discuss how we can help and provide a suitable time-frame to resolve the issue.  Our Parent Support worker may also contact you who can loan school uniform on a short-term basis.

  •     Red sweatshirts, cardigans and fleece jackets, bearing the school logo.
