We believe that a school uniform is important and has been chosen with health and safety and cost issues in mind.
- It looks smart
- Wears well
- Contributes to a sense of belonging
- Gives a common purpose
- Fosters a feeling of pride and equality
The uniform consists of:
School jumper or cardigan, white polo shirt, slate grey trousers or shorts, skirt or pinafore and sensible black shoes (not trainers).
A burgundy and white gingham dress can also be worn in the warmer weather during the Spring and Summer terms.
Please see the school clerk for more details about our main suppliers who are currently Justs of Kingsfold Drive, Penwortham. This is for badged items only as other items can be purchased from high street stores.
Please add name tags to all clothing so that clothes found can be returned to the owners.
Jewellery should not be worn at school. If ears are pierced, children may then wear a single stud in the lower lobe of the ear only. No other types of facial piercing are permitted. Equally, children are not allowed to wear make up of any sort to school. For safety children must be able to remove earrings for PE, swimming and any other activity as requested by the class teacher.
The school encourages pupils to have a smart overall appearance. Where a pupil’s appearance has a direct impact on children’s welfare, behaviour and/or education for the individual or class, the school may take steps to rectify the situation. The school reserves the right to apply the System of Care to implement this policy.
Additionally, for very clear Health and Safety reasons, pupils are not allowed to wear shoes with a heel. Students who attend school with unacceptable shoes will be required to change into safer footwear (provided by the school) and replace the shoes as soon as possible.
For health and safety reasons it is important that children are properly dressed for any physical activity. Our uniform for PE is as follows:
Children should come to school wearing PE kit, with their normal school jumper or cardigan, on their PE days (twice a week). Please see the class pages for information on which days.
Children may wear black, grey, or maroon tracksuit bottoms over their PE kit on colder days.
Children may wear a hoodie over their PE kit on colder days.
Pupils will require swimming trunks (or shorts above the knee) or swimsuit and a swimming cap (with name on) from Year 3 onwards.
