Summer Uniform:

Summer uniform includes royal blue check school summer dresses or tailored black or grey shorts.

PE Kit:

The expectation at present is that children will come to school in their PE kits on the days when they have PE.

Items for PE are light blue polo shirt and black shorts. Plimsolls are required for indoor and playground PE, trainers or football boots and a black tracksuit/jogging bottoms/sweatshirt (not leggings) are needed for games in the winter months.

All clothing must be labelled.

Jewellery and Watches:

In order to follow safety regulations, the only jewellery allowed is one pair of smooth, flat ear studs with no rear projection. Pupils may wear watches but the school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage and they should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. All jewellery and watches, including earrings, must be removed for P.E. and swimming lessons to prevent injury to the wearer or to others.


An old shirt or apron is necessary for art and craft activities.


KS2 children will also need swimwear (one piece costume for girls, trunks or lycra swim shorts for boys), hat and towel for their swimming sessions at the secondary phase swimming pool.


I feel valued as a member of staff. I like the fact the school has a clear vision, a vision that I feel a part of.

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
