(Instead of a white shirt or blouse, the children may wear white polo shirts, but not patterned ones).

*Sweatshirts and cardigans with the school logo on, as well as ties, are available from the school office.

In the summer, girls and boys may wear black shorts as long as they are of uniform style, or girls may wear blue and white checked dresses.

PLEASE SEE THAT YOUR CHILDREN WEAR SENSIBLE SHOES: School is an active place and fancy shoes are not suitable. The correct uniform is black shoes please, and this applies to summer uniform as well as winter. Boots are not suitable for children to wear all day.

In line with our Health and Safety policy, it is considered dangerous for children to wear jewellery to school, in particular during P.E. and playtimes.

If your child has pierced ears, then one pair of studs is acceptable. Watches must be removed for P.E. lessons.

Hair and nails

Must be an appropriate style for primary school children. Extreme haircuts/styles are strictly not allowed. Hair longer than shoulder length is to be tied back for P.E. lessons and as staff are not permitted to do this, we strongly recommend that parents of younger children prepare them before they come to school.

Nail polish and make up are not allowed at school at any time.
