School Uniform

School Uniform

Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of the school uniform.

School sweatshirts and polo shirts are available. Boys should wear black or grey school trousers and girls should wear black or grey school skirts.

In the summer term girls may wear a red checked dress.

Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing.

A Clothing Order form is available from the school office detailing the items available and the costs. Information is also available on the school website.

An order for uniform is sent of the first Friday of each month.

Our school colours are red and black.

A school’s reputation can also be enhanced in the local community by the wearing of school uniform and school security will be improved as it will be easier to identify intruders.

The appropriate clothing and footwear for PE is a T-shirt, shorts and gym shoes with non-marking soles. These are necessary for health and safety reasons and your co-operation is requested to ensure that pupils are equipped to participate in the PE lessons.

Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled.

A protective apron or an old shirt should be kept in school and worn for art and craft activities.

Please help us by ensuring that pupils do not bring valuable or expensive items of clothing to school.

Football colours should not be worn in school. Earrings can be dangerous, so we would ask that only small studs be worn in school.

If you have any queries regarding the school’s dress code, please contact the school office.
