▪ White, black or grey socks/ grey or green tights
▪ Coat appropriate for weather conditions (together with scarf & gloves when outside)
For P.E sessions, the following kit is required:
Indoor: shorts, t-shirt and plimsolls
Outdoor: tracksuit top/ jumper, joggers and suitable trainers
No jewellery should be worn (plasters must be provided if earrings cannot be removed for any reason)
One piece costume/ fitted trunks and a towel are needed for swimming (specific year groups only)
For house activities, children will wear different coloured T-shirts:
Bley wear blue,

How will my child benefit from wearing the school uniform?
▪ Pupils feel a strong sense of belonging and commitment to the school.
▪ The differences between pupils are reduced, which in turn can minimise feelings of isolation and bullying whilst improving self-esteem.
▪ Sensible footwear is safer and more practical for activities at school.
▪ It is more hygienic to change into PE kit for physical activity.
▪ Security is improved – it is easy to spot those who do not belong to the school community.
▪ It improves the image of the school in the local community.
