We expect all children to wear school uniform: looking neat and tidy and taking pride in their appearance. Parents/ Carers are asked to support the school’s uniform policy by providing the correct uniform and encouraging children to look after it. We also request that you label all items. 


Our Uniform

  • Red cardigan, sweatshirt or jumper. 
  • Grey or black skirt or pinafore
  • Grey or black tailored trousers (trousers made of jersey fabric are permitted providing they give the appearance of smart trousers, not leggings)

  • Grey, white or black tights.
  • Black shoes-these should be proper shoes ie not black trainers, crocs, or similar
