School Uniform

We believe that wearing school uniform promotes a positive attitude, high standards and a sense of belonging to the school.  Uniform worn smartly helps pupils to feel good about themselves, which has a knock-on effect with regard to how they function within the school.  We encourage the full wearing of school uniform appropriate to the weather at all times.  This is in preparation for secondary school where uniform is more enforced.

As a school we understand the financial difficulties that uniform can sometimes cause and have therefore ensured that our uniform can be purchased from a range of sources to suit all budgets.  If, however, you are still facing difficulties with this, please contact the office and ask for a confidential meeting with either Mrs Kearney, Mrs Jones or Mrs Harvey. We have also preloved uniform sales regularly in school.  Details will be sent out via email and advertised on posters around the school.

General Pupil Presentation

Hairstyles (boys and girls) should be simple and of the child’s natural colour. Fashion /extreme styles/shaven heads are not acceptable.  No ‘tram lines’ or shaved designs please.

Long hair should be tied up.

Pupils should not wear nail varnish or make up.


Pupils who have pierced ears may wear a pair of small, plain studs.  Earrings and jewellery can be extremely dangerous, especially at playtime and during physical activities.  The School and County Policy require that earrings be removed for PE lessons, even where studs are worn.  We strongly recommend that ears are pierced at the beginning of the summer holidays in order for them to have time to heal and prevent children from missing out on vital parts of the curriculum at school.
