School bags

Large holdalls and rucksacks should not be brought into school.

Book bags are available from Salto which are suitable for books and homework. PE equipment should be brought to school in a drawstring bag. Any other type of bag brought to school should be flat when empty so that the cloakrooms are not overcrowded.

Naming of Uniform and lost property

Please make sure that all your child’s clothes are clearly labelled with their name and class. The school will endeavour to reunite lost named items with their owners. Unnamed lost property will be disposed of at the end of each term.


Some hair accessories can be dangerous in an activity which involves physical contact; therefore for Health and Safety reasons, hair accessories should be simple and practical. Extreme hairstyles such as drastic colour changes or shaved patterns are not acceptable.


Pupils may wear a simple watch, which should be removed during practical or physical lessons. Earrings are not permitted; pupils who have their ears pierced may wear small plastic inserts only. Children must be able to remove their own earrings when requested.

Mobile Phones

Children are not permitted to bring a mobile phone into school.

The School Uniform policy is an integral part of the school’s commitment to equality and inclusion. The Governing Body believes the school uniform policy allows all pupils to establish a shared identity and celebrate what they have in common, whilst respecting diversity.

We ask all parents to support the School Uniform policy.

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and that it is clean and in good repair. The help, support and cooperation of the parents implementing this policy is greatly appreciated.

Second Hand Uniform

We keep a small stock of second hand uniform in school and from time to time will hold a ‘Second Hand Uniform Sale’ at affordable prices. Any proceeds raised from the sale of Uniform will go towards school resources.
