A school uniform is being introduced to the school gradually. From September 2021, it will be compulsory for children in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4. Children in other year groups have a choice whether to wear a uniform or whether to still wear their own clothes. For Nursery children, it is not compulsory but it will save their clothes from being covered in paint, glue and mud!
The uniform consists of:
Green sweatshirt / cardigan with embroidered logo (available from school)
Gold polo shirt
Grey trousers / shorts / skirt / pinafore /green checked 'school dress'
Grey socks or tights
Black school shoes (not trainers)
The gold polo shirt and grey bottoms can be bought from any shop that stocks uniform - Tesco, Asda, Marks and Spencer, Debonair in Ashton and the School Wear shop in Greenfield as they are basic bits of uniform without logos. They are quite cheap. For example, two polo shirts are available from Tesco cost £3.50.
We have decided to stock the sweatshirt and cardigan ourselves. We will have a certain number in stock and you will be able to buy it from the office at cost price. This is £8.50 for a 24” to 34” sweatshirt and £10.50 for 36” and 38”. The cost for a cardigan from 24” to 32” is £9.45 and £10.80 for 34” and 36”. We will order at regular intervals to ensure that we have a stock of different sizes.
We welcome donations of second hand uniform and once we have coleected a pile, we will put it out at the beginning or end of the day for parents to help themselves.
Whilst some children do have the choice whether or not to wear the uniform, we do insist, that if they wear school uniform, they wear it correctly. So for example, they don’t wear school sweatshirt with jeans or wear school uniform with trainers.
Children do need to have a PE kit in school consisting of a change of t-shirt, shorts or leggings, a pair of pumps and a sweatshirt for outdoors PE. These should be provided from home and be in school every day. We do not have a specified PE uniform.
