The Governors and staff of the school strongly recommend the wearing of school uniform although it is not mandatory. It consists of a white or red polo shirt, a shirt or blouse, a red jumper or sweatshirt, grey trousers or skirt and sensible shoes, not trainers. All uniform is available from Andy Blair’s on Barker Butts Road. Alternatively, you may purchase the uniform from Tesco. Full details on how to do this are at the bottom of this page.

For safety reasons we ask that jewellery be not worn to school (except for religious bangles). Jewellery can be dangerous when your child is involved in any physical activity – even playing in the playing – and especially in P.E, Games, and Swimming.

It is important that children have a change of clothes for physical education and the following kit is required:


Plain black shorts
White round neck t-shirt (with or without logo)


Plain black short/plain black cuffed tracksuit bottoms
White t-shirt (as above)
Plain black sweatshirt (no hoods)

(All items can be purchased from Sporting Success on Barker Butts Road)

Swimming costume (year 3, 4 and 5)

All items to be worn to school should be clearly marked with your child’s name.

For further information see this letter to parents.
