Wearing a school uniform gives the children both a sense of pride and belonging. We encourage the children to take care of their belongings and to take responsibility of their kit whilst it is in school. It should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. Children should have a PE kit in school every day.
Aims of Wearing the School Uniform
We believe that wearing our school uniform:
- Promotes a sense of pride in our school
- Helps to create a sense of community and belonging
- Identifies the children with the school
- Prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that can distract in class
- Is practical, smart and safe
About our School Shield
The school shield reflects our Christian ethos and shows a Bible and a Crook. The Bible reminds us that we learn wisdom and the crook reminds us of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.

- Joggers or sports leggings for outside PE (class newsletters indicate what kind of PE)
- Trainers – these must be suitable for outside wear and can be the same as the child’s outside trainers or they can be sports trainers of any colour)
If a pupil forgets their PE kit we will do all we can to help and will loan them a kit for the session. If it happens repeatedly then the teacher would discuss this with the parents/carers.
Pupils take part in swimming lessons once in Key Stage 2.
- Girls should wear a single piece costume and boys should wear swimming trunks.
- Bikinis and swimming shorts are not permitted.
- Swimming goggles are permitted in some circumstances and parents should consult their child’s teacher regarding this.
