Nearly New ‘Badged Uniform’ Shelf - we hold a selection of nearly new uniform (the ‘badged’ items only). The shelf is available to browse at welcome meetings, parents’ evenings and other events.  However, if you would like to have a look at any time, please call into the school office.



  • No jewellery, including earrings. Any child wearing earrings will be asked to remove them or will have to cover them with plasters.
  • No extreme haircuts, including patterns, colouring, ‘shaved’ hair, false hair or excessive use of hair products.
  • Hair bobbles and clips should be navy blue, in-keeping with school uniform. Large bows are not permitted.
  • No make-up or nail polish (including false nails, false tan or other enhancements).
  • No electronic/smart watches.


School Book Bag

As part of our school uniform, every child from Reception through to the end of Year 6 requires a book bag. Each day children should bring their book bag to school where it will be stored safely. 

Book bags provide a safe place for children to keep their school diary, reading book and any letters. They also reduce the wear and tear on reading books. 

Book bags should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. A small keyring may be attached to the handle to help the child to identify their bag. 


 Swimming Kit

Children go swimming in KS2, until they can swim 25 metres confidently.  Details of the requirements will be communicated to parents in advance.
