Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of the school uniform.
The uniform was agreed in consultation with parents, pupils, staff and the Parent Council.
It incorporates a range of popular items of dress, e.g. sweatshirts, T-shirts.
Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing.

A stock of sweatshirts (£7.00), polo shirts (£6.30) and ties (£2.50) are available to purchase from the school office. Other items such as waterproof jackets and fleeces can be ordered by the office.
A school’s reputation can also be enhanced in the local community by the wearing of school uniform and school security will be improved as it will be easier to identify intruders.
The appropriate clothing and footwear for PE is a T-shirt, shorts and gym shoes with non-marking soles. These are necessary for health and safety reasons and your co-operation is requested to ensure that pupils are equipped to participate in the PE lessons.
Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled, particularly ties, sweat shirts and PE equipment which are often lost.
A protective apron or an old shirt should be worn for art and craft activities.
Please help us by ensuring that pupils do not bring valuable or expensive items of clothing to school.
If you have any queries regarding the school’s dress code, please contact the school office. Please find an order form in the link below.
