Wearing a school uniform gives the children both a sense of pride and belonging.
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.
We encourage the children to take care of their belongings and to take responsibility of their uniform and kit whilst it is in school. The information below is the minimum standards that we expect all children to follow.
The school holds samples of uniform so that you can compare sizes but we do not sell uniform. School uniform carrying the school crest can be ordered from the link at the bottom of this page. The company makes regular deliveries to school which reduces delivery costs to parents.
Every item needs to be named please - you can use iron on or sew in labels or simply write it on the garment label. Doing this means lost items are easier to re-unite with their owners.
We make every attempt to return named items to the children within school. Un-named items are stored in the box by the main hall where children can look to see if their missing items are there. Each term the box is emptied and any re-useable items are placed in the schools spare uniform store or donated to charity.

- Grey skirt, grey pinafore dress, grey trousers or grey shorts. Please note that skirts should be an appropriate length.

On PE days, children should wear their school PE uniform:

Pupils take part in swimming lessons once in Key Stage 2. Girls should wear a single piece costume and boys should wear trunks. Bikinis and swimming shorts are not permitted. Swimming goggles are permitted and parents are asked to sign a permission form for this which is sent out with other swimming information.
No jewellery is allowed apart from small, plain, stud earrings (gold or silver) and an appropriate watch. Earrings should not be worn on swimming or PE days.
- Nail varnish and make up are not permitted in school.
- Hair should be of a natural colour only.
- Long hair should be tied back at all times. Hair accessories should be discrete and in school colours.

Girls in year 5 and 6 who wish to wear a hijab may do so which can be either black or burgundy.
We understand that parents of pupils in year 5 or 6 may wish their child to have a mobile phone if they are walking home from school on their own. Pupils must hand in their phone to their class teacher who will store the phone in the class. Children are not allowed to make calls, send texts or listen to their device whilst on the school premises.
Non School Uniform Days:
Occasionally the school has a non uniform day. Children may wear their home clothes but the rules about shoes and jewellery remain.
