There is a smart and practical uniform, which is both simple and serviceable. The basic outfit is economical to buy and we would like all children to wear school uniform the year round as a matter of pride in their school and personal appearance.
The items of school uniform and PE kit showing the school logo are available from school through the PTA. Other items are available through retail outlets in town.
Any child who is experiencing difficulty in wearing the current uniform due to a medical condition e.g. eczema should alert the Headteacher, who will be sympathetic in trying to resolve the problem.
The principal colours are royal blue and mid-grey.

Labelling of Clothing and Belongings
The amount of property mislaid by children is enormous and the hours spent by staff and pupils searching to retrieve items are quite considerable. With a little ingenuity, virtually all items can be marked with a name. Please do not forget shoes, games items and even underclothing. These are the very things that get mixed up and disappear during games or swimming. Bags, pencil cases and their contents should all be named. Embroidered and iron-on labels are available from the PTA.
Uniform Sales Service
The PTA organises a sales service for items of uniform and PE kit. This enables the cost of the uniform with the school logo to be kept at a very reasonable price. Bulk orders are placed at the beginning of term and the end of each half term. Order forms are available at school and only firm orders with cash/cheques can be accepted.
There are also second-hand uniform items available from the school shop, which opens on the first available Wednesday of the month at 3 pm in the first aid room. Uniform is accepted for sale on your behalf with 50% of the sale price donated to school funds.
