School Uniform Policy


It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We provide a complete list of the items needed for school uniform in our school prospectus and on the school website.

Aims and objectives

  • Our policy on 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;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.

For PE all children need:

School white t-shirt
Small drawstring bag
School black PE shorts
Juniors will need trainers and possibly jogging bottoms at the top of the school
Please Note: PE kits should be kept in school at all times and fully named.


On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.
The exceptions to this rule are plain flat ear-ring studs in pierced ears (no diamante/diamond etc). We ask the children to either remove these objects during PE and games, or cover them with a plaster, to prevent them from causing injury.

Extreme haircuts

The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts (shaved patterns into hair etc)  that could serve as a distraction to other children, as they are not in keeping with the ethos of the school.  This includes patterns shaved into the hair and false hair pieces.  The definition of  an extreme haircut is at the discretion of the head teacher. These type of cuts are not allowed in comprehensive/senior schools.

Make up and Cosmetics

No make up or nail varnish is to be worn in school.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child’s name

The role of parents

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.

If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.

The role of governors

The governing body supports the headteacher in implementing the school uniform policy. It considers all representations from parents regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity. It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities.
Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical.

Monitoring and review

The governing body monitors and reviews the school uniform policy through its committee work by:

  • seeking the views of parents, to ensure that they agree with and support the policy;
  • considering, with the headteacher, any requests from parents for individual children to have special dispensation with regard to school uniform;
  • requiring the headteacher to report to the governors on the way the school uniform policy is implemented.
