Uniform/ Dress Code

Uniform from September 2016


In September 2016 a new school uniform, designed by the school council was introduced.


All children in Years 1 to 6 will wear a white shirt with a proper collar and a school tie.

Children in Nursery and Reception will wear white polo shirts and no tie.

Ties, cardigans and jumpers need to be bought from the school uniform suppliers but shirts, skirts and trousers can be bought from local supermarkets.


Navy academy polo shirts can be worn for PE with black shorts and plimsolls. Plain white t-shirts can also be worn for PE.


The length of skirts and dresses was discussed by School Councillors and Governors. A policy on the length of skirts and dresses started in September stating that they should be knee length. This is to stop any embarrassment about underwear being seen when skirts and dresses are too short or have splits in them.


The following will remain the same as before:

  • Navy cardigans and jumpers with academy logo

  • Black or grey trousers, shorts or skirts

  • Flat, black shoes

  • White, grey or black socks or tights

  • Blue and white summer dresses


Yours sincerely


 Naomi Shrimpton

We consider it very important for the well-being, health and safety of our pupils that the correct uniform is worn and non-uniform items are not brought into school.   We would be very grateful for your support in ensuring that your child has the correct uniform.

For outdoor Fitness Friday sessions in cold weather children may also wear a school fleece

Children in years 3 and 4 will need a swimming costume and towel at certain times of the year

Children in Key Stage 2 may need football boots, but you will be notified in advance

Football kit/strips are not acceptable for PE and Sport in school.



Most children at the school will have identical or similar items of clothing.   It is therefore essential that everything has a name clearly marked inside so that if it is mislaid it can be returned.



Any form of jewellery, including nose studs or any other form of body piercing jewellery is considered unnecessary and is not suitable in school.  Such items are easily lost and can cause injury. 


When children have pierced ears they may wear small plain studs but not hoops.  If they do not have stud earrings then they should not wear earrings to school.


Any child arriving at school wearing jewellery, other than a watch or stud earrings, will be told to remove them.  The jewellery will be put in a sealed envelope and returned to the child at the end of the day.



For health and safety reasons children should not wear platform soles, flip flops, high heels or open toes.  This expectation also applies to mufti days. 

School uniform can be bought from our supplier, CJI Clothing, who are based in Moordown.  For those who prefer shopping online CJI Clothing offer this facility.
