School Uniform

It is important that children present themselves appropriately when they are in school. Our uniform sets the standard the school expects and is appropriate for a place of learning. Make up, coloured nail varnish and extreme hairstyles are inappropriate for a school.  Children can have one stud in each ear and a wristwatch may be worn. No other jewellery is allowed, including necklaces and wristbands. Children will be asked to remove these items if they wear them to school. For safety reasons, no earrings are allowed for PE and children must be able to remove them themselves. Trainers should only be worn for PE. The behaviour policy will be used for children who persistently wear any items that are not part of this guidance. 


Please ensure that your child wears the correct school uniform listed below and that all uniform is named.
