Physical Education (PE). On the days in which your child has PE, they should come to school dressed in their PE kit as detailed below.

As a reminder to all parents/carers ALL items of clothing, including shoes/wellies – should be clearly marked with the child’s name.

These are the expectations set out by the Governors of the school to maintain the high standards from the first day in September until the last day of the term in July. There are no exceptions to this. We will loan items of school clothing to children on days they do not come to school dressed accordingly. 


We are able to support families by providing uniform items from school when something is missing. This supply is through the ‘previously loved’ scheme where families donate uniforms no longer needed to the school. We wash the items donated and ensure they are in good condition before redistributing and therefore thank anyone, in advance, who might be in a position to donate a spare uniform that no longer fits to our reception; it will always go to a good home.


If you have any school uniform items which you no longer require (shorts skirts, trousers, dresses, sweatshirts, cardigans, PE tops / trousers/shorts) please drop them off at the school office. 



Purchasing Uniform


Our school sells the following branded school items:

  • Sweatshirts
  • Cardigans
  • Polo shirts
  • PE T-Shirts
  • PE Tracksuit Jacket & Bottoms
  • Bookbags

However, there is no expectation for parents/carers to purchase school branded items from our chosen supplier through school. Parents/Carers can purchase plain un-branded items such as plain red jumpers/cardigans or plain white polo shirts which are available from most supermarkets and other stores.
